Parenting has been a long practice that desires and demands unconditional sacrifices. Sacrifice is something that makes motherhood worthwhile. The mother-child relation- ship can be a standout amongst the most convoluted, and fulfilling, of all connections. Women are fuel by self-sacrifice and guilt - but everyone is the better for it. Their youngsters, who feel adored; whatever is left of us, who are saved disagreeable expe- riences with adolescents raised without affection or warmth; and mothers most impor- tantly.
She stands alone against a society that casted her out, and despite making a friend, she could not lower that barrier entirely. This shows the strength an individual needs to stand against society. Society does not accept those who do not conform to its standards, so one needs to be able to stand tall against its pressures without casting aside all that they stand
Although shy, I loved my friends and siblings and thought the best in every situation. It wasn’t until I grew older and received the guidance and outside perspective of my adopted mom that I realized how awful my home life was. I’ve since begun analyzing my behaviors and emotions that ran through my mind as a child to realize how to overcome the abuse I’d endured. The six books I’ve chosen as mirrors identify the emotions and behaviors I see myself having at a young age of nine or ten years old.
Hester is full of strength and hard work “As Hester Prynne builds a new life, her hard work and charity end up altering the letter’s meaning.” Hester is the person who changes the meaning of the letter. She does not let the letter “A” define her as something she is not. Hester ends up being a very helpful person in The Scarlet Letter and Hawthorne tells us that “The letter was a symbol of her calling. Such helpfulness was found in her, so much power to do, and power to sympathize that many people refused to interpret the scarlet “A” by its original significance” (146).
The Kairos of when the essay was written is essential because if the essay was written in modern day, many will not read it for it is currently not a concerning issue compare to how it used to be. Living life while believing there is something living and crawling inside you is no easy thing just anyone can live with. Morgellons disease is a relatively rare condition that most frequently affects middle-aged white women. The skin shows symptoms of rashes, sores, fibers, the sensation of creatures crawling on or in your skin, and extreme itching. Anyone who lives with this disease will feel a great amount of discomfort and the idea that they will just be ignored is depressing.
What tone will make you audience listen. Sonia's speech is able to be truthful and straightforward with her audience which gives it a candid tone. She needed to be candid and straightforward because she is trying to get projects going to start resolving the issues of underrepresentation of minorities in government roles. She explains how being Latina has impacted her influence on issues and topics while she sits on the bench. Although she didn’t just magically appear on the bench, it took many hardships and endurance to get to where she is today.
Petra used her thought-shaper powers rally others to rescue her. “Petra’s call came as suddenly and unexpectedly as before. Though it did not have the violent, compulsive panic which it had carried last time, it was intense…” (Wyndham 105) It is evident within this quote that Petra, even as young as her, is still able to persuade others to come for her.
In her speech, Watson states one of her accomplishments, “I was appointed as Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women six months ago” (Watson 2). This immediately builds her credibility and establishes ethos. This establishes ethos because she quickly shuts down any doubts that the audience may suspect about her, due to the fact that she is a well-known celebrity. She also admits she lacks political experience, which displays her honesty to the audience. She expresses, “You may be thinking, ‘Who is this Harry Potter girl, and what is she doing speaking at the UN?’”
Nevertheless, Bria could improve on providing the audience with ethical significance while using the semester’s readings. She used Steve Almond, Frederick Douglass, and Peter Singer in order to address the ethical and moral significance. Although it is commendable to state that she used their theories, she failed to elaborate on how each of these theorist informed her topic. In noting the element of Bria’s speech, little could be written about the theories of each theorist because so little information was given about them and their relevance to her topic. It would benefit Bria to use her arguments from the assigned weekly reflections to help her go more into depth about how these theorists added or subtracted from her
I feel that many people can learn from Cassie’s successes and failures, and become a better person not only for themselves, but also for the good of the
Gladwell’s argument is that Mavens give news to Connectors who then share the news with everyone. Since Watts has disproved that connectors are crucial in creating epidemics, there is only the Mavens and the Salespeople. There is no need for Connectors because of new technology, but there is still need for Mavens because of their knowledge, and Salespeople because of their persuasion. There is still a need for Connectors when it comes to some things. For example, someone is more likely to wear clothes that a famous person has on than clothes that a random person has on because everyone knows the famous person.
The fact that she can walk away from all those terrible experiences with love for her parents is incredible. Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love. If she had been bitter in her description it would not have been as amazing. This memoir was written with forgiveness making me respect her for not only surviving such a strange childhood to become a successful, but for being able to view her past with
Brené Brown lecture, “The Power of Vulnerability”, uses years of research to explore and explain vulnerability existing. Brown is a research professor and wrote many books. Brown’s lecture starts with her talking about the long ride of research on the topic of vulnerability. Brown discovers and tells the audience that connection is the purpose in life. People want to connect but shame is the reason which then it becomes disconnection or painful vulnerability.
but I also chose Jane Addams as well. One thing I truly admire from Jane was how she saw a problem and did not ignore it but did something to fix the problem such as the Hull House Settlement. Jane put herself in different situations to help her challenge herself and to grow from the different challenges to be role model for others to see (Seigfried,
Mama believes that students should attain knowledge about racism, slavery, and segregation even though it’s not taught in the book. She calls these subjects “radical” subjects as they relate to most of her student’s lives. Mama believes that learning about their true past is more important than learning the biased version taught in the books. This act gets Mama caught and fired. Even though Mama had gotten fired for the subjects she taught her students, she did not regret her actions.
