I learned that families are not always going to have the same views and are definitely not always going to agree on social issues. For instance, I brought up planned parenthood in the interview and while me and Lisa love and support planned parenthood my grandma did not know much about it and referred to it as an abortion clinic. I quickly pulled out a powerpoint I made to prevent defunding planned parenthood to show her all the other services planned parenthood offers and how abortions were only the tiniest sliver. I taught her about it and she said she was going to look into it more and learn more about it. Overall this was a great experience and I am blessed to have such strong independent women in my
This is a noteworthy description, since throughout the novel the reader can infer Kambili’s understanding of a situation from the way she describes her mother’s clothes. When she thus describes her mother as looking unkempt, the reader can infer that she does not view her mother’s state of mind as being particularly steady. On other occasions, Kambili’s descriptions of her mother also indicate that she thinks her mother is especially submitting, such as when Beatrice ardently says “amen” when Eugene prays for her forgiveness and Kambili cannot understand why her mother needs any forgiveness (Adichie, 2013). It is thus evident through Kambili’s description of her, that Beatrice is not a strong character, most probably due to Eugene’s abuse of
Throughout reading this argument I could not stop thinking about what the parents might be going through to see their dying daughter be poked and prodded like the way she was and how they felt to hear the doctors and nurses say there was nothing they could do. To hear that as a parent must be the worst thing to go through. However, the author decides to not include the feelings of the parents into her article and I feel that it might not be fair to portray the young couple as villains who did not care what their daughter was going through while they might have just been thinking that they did not want to lose her. I understand that they might have not been willing to participate in talking to a hospital ethicist after their daughter had passed on, but to even have a glimpse into the thought process of the parents really could have taken this article to the next level, in my
As she thinks that her husband is not strong enough to do so, she asks the “spirits” (1.5 l.39) to “unsex [her]” (1.5 l. 40). She seems to consider femininity to equate kindness and compassion. “And take my milk for gall” (1.5 l. 47), Lady Macbeth also renounces from her capacity to give birth to a child as being a mother makes a woman even more caring and compassionate. Interestingly, Lady Macbeth might have had a child even though it is not alive and the loss would have certainly influenced her perception of mother- and womanhood: “I have given such, and know/ How tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me” (1.7 ll. 54-55).
I exclaimed “Oh yes, I can put up an American flag” to which your response was not very welcoming. You had double checked with my sister to ensure that I really was of American decent. When she had agreed you had then not had a very pleasing look on your face. Furthermore you tried to change the rules so that I was not able to bring in an American flag, by saying “actually it can only be two generations back”. Luckily enough my American heritage is within the restriction you tried to place.
Tension (Noun): Tension is a mental or emotional strain caused by something or someone that typically induces anxiety, stress, or pressure. Oftentimes, throughout one’s life, one finds that when one is in a specific situation, tension occurs internally, and sometimes even externally between two people. Similarly, in Diana Lopez’s novel, Confetti Girl and Jennifer Cervantes’ novel, Tortilla Sun, the narrators have different points of view than that of their parents, causing tension. For example, in Diana Lopez’s Confetti Girl, the narrator does not like English at all, but because her Father does, she finds that at home, her Father is always asking her about her English class and how she is doing in the class; since her Father is so involved in the subject that he seems to disregard the narrator’s view on it, an internal tension forms within the narrator between her and her Father.
This lawsuit brought the topic back into light and continued to intrigue theorists. However, there was a different, and real, Irene Bolam. This woman was said to be Earhart 's friend and that is who she based her false name off of. One theorist claims that a friend of this Irene Bolam says Earhart changed her name because she wanted to live as a normal person and not a public figure, and after all she had been through, Amilia did not want to be herself anymore (“Examining”). Even after the mysterious, new Irene Bolam’s death in 1982, theorists continued to suspect and analize her.
She sees the amount of pain Madame Ratignolle is in, how gruesome the scene is, and she makes the comment that she regrets attending the delivery. This serves as a lesson to Edna in many different ways. This was her first big realization that during her pregnancies and deliveries, she did not experience the real pain. Her pain was numbed by chloroform which played the role as an anesthetic. Edna then looks back at her feelings towards the birth of her children.
There are various reasons why a victim of such abuse might not what to disclose their abuse with anyone. One reason being the shame, this is a primary reason why victims do not speak about their encounters with such demons. They are afraid of what others might say, for example, “you asked for it” “you deserved it” “you could have dressed differently”. In “Gerald’s Game” Jess is seen wearing a short sundress during this flashback which she goes on to say in later scenes that her mom warned her was too short. This feeling of shame usually causes victims to blame themselves for what happened to them, feeling shame is almost always accompanied by a sense of being unworthy or exposed which causes victims to
R. in his 2015 article, Anthropology and Islamic Law, in The Oxford Handbook of Islamic Law. In this work, he discusses the defense mechanism women set up in during marriage talks. It is said that Saudi brides’ mothers insist on including conditional clauses (shurut) in the marriage contracts, mainly to ensure the right to complete higher education or to work outside the home or add a clause to guarantee the right to a divorce in case the husband took a second wife. These clauses help bring the idea of Islamic law into a friendlier western idea of justice for
I believe she did this because she did not want to tell her mom no, as a caregiver, especially to a loved one sometime following your intuition and saying no can be difficult being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person. Being a Certified Nursing Assistant, the two essays I chose were ones I could relate to. The struggle that she encountered while trying to help her mom into the car was one that I’ve had to deal with on many occasions. Having patients is key to caring for your elderly or sick love ones. As a caregiver you are obligated to provide quality care, assisting and supervising in all activities of daily living.
