He chose the right decision of covering up her accident, by acting out of pure love for her as a father to daughter. Throughout the whole story, Luke has had rituals in his house that he does to bring his spiritual relationship between him and God closer. At the end of the story, Luke also attempts to talk to God to justify his actions after the occurence.

The audience can relate because they care for their families as well. John Proctor is a christian, but he doesn’t attend church every Sunday for his own reasons. The audience can relate to this belief. Arther Miller even had John Proctor’s character choose his words carefully when he speaks to authority figures, such as when he said, “I-I have not witness and cannot prove it, except my word be taken. But I know the children’s sickness had naught to do with witchcraft.” (TC,2.1063).
I think I have such a hard time understanding this part of the novel because I grew up in a Catholic family where everyone in my family believed the same things. Religion was never "forced" on me or any of my siblings, instead we had the freedom to choose what we wanted to believe in. In regards to Sebastian "drinking away his problems", the following quote from book 1 chapter 2 exemplifies how these alcohol problems have become more serious. Jasper said this to Sebastian: "But I hear you're constantly seen drunk in the middle of the afternoon" (Waugh 45). Sebastian's alcoholism made me think about my family and how alcohol affected our family dynamic.

Dickinson’s brother was also valued highly in society due to the fact that
Adichie uses two conflicting religions to show the development of Kambili’s character and maturity, as well as explore the tension that is forced unto the her throughout the novel. From the beginning of the novel, the reader perceives Kambili to be a quiet, and timid character, due to her strict upbringing. Her life is set up and organised by her strict catholic father, who is a priest at their local church. Because her father adopted catholicism instead of continuing the path of his ancestros into Igbo traditionalism, Kambili is desperate to earn her father’s approval. Adichie indicates this when Kambili instinctually says ‘God will
Motivations should not damage the mind, weaken the soul, break the heart, or push a person to go to limits one cannot even begin to fathom. Motivation should an uplift a person from the reality we all live in, instead of pushing them deeper into a void of loneliness or oblivion. The most reliable motivations are ones who encourage a person to develop from
As for forms of appeal, the author has established a strong ethos. This can be explained due to the author’s education, including her job, but can most importantly be explained due to her experiences. Throughout the article, the author discusses the contrast between how Chinese and Western parents are educating children, and in this context, she mentions her own experiences, for instance: “[…] I was extremely disrespectful to my mother, my father angrily called me “garbage” […]. It worked really well, I felt terrible […]. But it didn’t damage my self-esteem or anything like that.

Dreamers are meant to dream, and thinkers are meant to live practical lives. In the story, Ashleigh (Ashes) is the only child of a divorced couple.

Ashes took the $200 from the teapot because she loved her dad more, it would have been paid back in a day, and it would set her dad on the path to success.

Despite his many arrests, King never gave up on the rights movement. At the age of twelve he suffered from depression and blamed himself of his grandmother’s death and jumped from a two-story window but he survived. Sometimes painful situations, for example, the death of his grandmother, will make you a stronger person in life and it will motivate you to try to change the world for the better.
The only thing they are responsible for is the genes that made the child born with those traits. The writer for The NY Times Magazine based most of her research on Michael and his family. Their family is a prime example that ineffective parenting is not the cause. His parents noticed that Michael had behavior problems since he was three years old and from then until present had done everything in their power to get him the help he needed. His mother actually had a degree in child psychology so she was frustrated that everything she learned and tried would not work with Michael.
