Yet Lindbergh discovered it after returning to the nursery alone.” (Townsend 11.) As suspicious as that sounds Lindbergh also just happened to forget his son’s dog that slept under the crib every night. (Townsend 11.)
None of them get what they want. Curley’s wife ends up dead and Candy and Crooks end up with nowhere to go but back to the ranch and a life where they are hated and shunned. All because of something they cannot control, their gender, their age, and their race. Everyone deserves an equal chance at their dream, but that is not how life works. Both now and in the 1930’s, the minories face challenges that others do not.

The reason being is since Hana knows very little english Mary and her can not have quality talks with her and Taro spends most a his days at the shop so he is never home.

First, the comparison between Thoreau and Francois, they both believed they should make people or animals discover things by themselves. In call of the wild, the first freezing night he stayed with the other huskies, he didn’t know how to keep warm. Thoreau forced him to sleep outside, in the book it described as “when he went in，they shouted angrily and threw things at him”(11). After Buck finally found the way, “‘What did I say？’ shouted Francois to Perrault, when he saw Buck come up out of the snow. ‘That Buck learns quickly’” (11).

Having these kinds of thoughts in my head has really made me feel alone for many years in my life. Because of these insecurities I wasn’t able to make her a close friend I was in able to go out with my friends, have long conversations, and I wasn’t able to stand up for myself. I became a follower.
