“Of course, you can be a prodigy, too”, her mother told her (Tan). For a nine-year-old who wants nothing more than to make her mother proud this was exciting. In the beginning, we can see her excitement and desire, “in the beginning I was just as excited as my mother, maybe even more so.” (Tan). However, as we follow the story we see her excitement quickly fade to sorrow and anger. The high expectations immigrant families place on their children is still a very relevant social issue and can be witnessed throughout the United States.
For the dialogue I really thought that it was good and it was needed. This was a man who was having an affair with someone and basically in turn made it seem like it was his wife’s fault. To me he seemed not to have any remorse over his actions and that he was okay with the decision.

It is worth it to know a little bit about this woman, because being a woman who wants to help wasn’t easy during her lifetime. Despise any difficulties that were brought on her she didn’t give up and was one of the greatest advocates for peace, liberty, social justice and human rights deeply interested in social issues. The purpose of her writing was to convey the experience of people who could not speak out, showing human suffering, paying attention to the shortcomings of the social system and discussions on finding remedies. Dorothy Day embodies the view of the human person that has emerged from our discussion of Christian theology and tradition by believing in inherited dignity and social reconstruction, as well as having the anarchist view.
Most of us, if we are honest, if we have to be remembered would like to be remembered for something good and positive. Our contemplation today is about a woman who is remembered for the wrong reasons and whose memory should teach us, sinner and saint alike, many valuable lessons. Jesus, when speaking to his disciples in Luke 17:32 said “Remember Lot’s wife.” This was a discourse about the Kingdom of God and end times and in the Scripture it is found in Genesis 19: 1-26 where we see the calamitous situation giving rise to Jesus’ quotation.
