I will be discussing why Mrs. Jones took him home, how their actions determine their character and the theme of the story.

Barnett that he should have helped the Logans and T.J before the little girl. Cassie took Little Man 's place for a wopen so he wouldn 't have be embarrassed on his very first day of school.

Also she told Mr. Barnett that he should have helped the first customer that had come in, which happen to be Cassie, Stacey, and T.J but Mr. Barnett had helped some other citizens before them, even though they came in first. Just like Rosa Parks stood up for what she believed in by not giving up her seat, my character Cassie Logan shows she 's brave by all of these acts and many

It says in the story that he only saved her by going against the power of the Prince and going into disguise as a pirate. Buttercup eventually finds out it is him by him saying on page 146 “As...you....wish…” (Goldman, 146) The reason is because this is what he said when he would do as she asks and it was a way of telling her he cared for her.

When she realized that Bailey was not too keen on the idea, she made up a story about treasure to get the kid’s to help beg their dad. In Short Stories for Students, Kathleen G. Ochshorn, she states, “O’Connor focuses her story on what is sinister in The Misfit and satirical in
It was an understandable mindset for Sammy to take on, but it was already leading to a horrible treatment of women as he clearly could not even respect his own mother. But while Father pushes ideals of toxic masculinity onto his son, Mother also pushed similar ideals on their daughter Nanny. When speaking with her daughter about how she felt about her husband’s decision to build a barn instead of a home, she seems to push the thought that women are nothing without men. She tells Nanny, “One of these days you’ll find out, an’ then you’ll know that we know only what men-folks think we do.” (Freeman 651)
Miep Gies made an impactful difference during the Holocaust giving Anne’s diary to her father was probably the most important thing she did. It was as if Otto Frank still had his daughter by him and something to remember and want she felt.

It is important for a person to know their true identity. If they do not know their true identity then they are not truly themselves, they are someone or something else. Most people choose to ignore who they really are because they are afraid that people will make fun of them for being different, but being different is a good thing and that should never hold anybody back. In fact, it should make people proud that no one else is quite like them. For example, Hercules and April both were left out because they were different, but they used their differences from others and became leaders where they were.

He got caught, and she decided to take him to try to teach him a few things so he wouldn’t misbehave again.

I feel that Mrs. Jones’s did not fully change Roger as a whole where this story leaves off. I do feel, however that she has set him down a better path with a little nudging head start. I would say this mostly due to the fact of his almost not being able to say thank you to Mrs. Jones. Now some may say that he was simply too overwhelmed with her kindness to say anything. But, I think that it was due to his inner self possibly questioning this change of person.
One of the most essential parts of a good story, the theme of a text has the important role of illustrating the motifs and messages that the story carries. The short story “Pharmacy” by Elizabeth Strout and the poem “The Journey” by Mary Oliver both posses powerful themes expressing that nobody should feel the need to conform to society and try to make everyone’s life better for the sake of one’s own satisfaction, for there is risk of losing one’s own character by doing so. In “Pharmacy”, the main character Henry Kitteridge has found himself torn between an unhappy, long-lasting marriage, and an intriguing assistant at the pharmacy where he works. Henry finds himself miserable trying to keep his wife, Olive, and his new co-worker, Denise happy.
