Final 3 review with John My father was less worried about my dreams when he decided to walk out of my life to concentrate on his issues. I was only nine years old with great interests in baseball that needed his encouragement and guidance during my training. I communicated to my mother, my desire to pitch and that I would never be good because I needed my father to teach me. That day I learned one of the most valuable things in my life she told me to never take the easy way out and blame someone else for not accomplishing your dreams. She told me to achieve a goal you must develop a plan.
Walter is saying that his father basically put his life in the ground and worked day and night to get his family that money. Walter Younger Sr. died getting that money to his family I believe he achieved his dream as soon as that money reached his family's doorstep. He knew to achieve his dream in america it would have to come at a cost and he was willing to sacrifice his life for his family to have a better one. “ Strength…” this quote had to be the most powerful in the book in my opinion. Mama said this right after the money was stolen for Beneatha’s medical school and Walter’s liquor store.
Rostam and Sohrab come back as the prototypal father and son. Hassan’s favorite story from the Shahnamah sketches a father, Rostam, who unwittingly kills his long-lost son. Amir, who was longing for his father’s approval, used and misinterpreted the complete tale as an apologue of his own life. When Amir wins the kite contest, he imagines about the time returning to his home, the story of “Rostam and Sohrab” has become an allegory for
In the essay “I Wish They’d Would Do It Right,” the author Jane Doe objects to her son’s decision to cohabitate rather than marry because there are many benefits that a married couple can have in this society.

The only concern that Jane has is that her son and his wife should legalized their marriage with a license.
In one example she tells him, “You are favored with superior advantages.” She says this to imply that John was raised in wealth and opportunities, and he should think twice before he lets that go to waste. She would continue on and then so end with, “Do honor to your country, and render your parents supremely happy.” I can imagine a smile appearing on John’s face as he reads this heartfelt message from his mother. She shows her support for her son and lets him know that she believes even if nobody else does.
Everything began about 12 years ago in El Salvador. When my father left El Salvador to come here to the United States, leaving my siblings, my mother, and me in El Salvador to give us a better life. Since that moment, when I saw my parents, working arduously every single day to try to get us out of poverty, to have better life conditions for me and my brothers; I knew that I had to become a professional to help my parents and reward them for all the effort and sacrifice that they have done for me. Years later, I started to wonder how engines, computers, and every type of machines work, and after going deeper into the topic, I felt fascinated in knowing how complex things work. From that moment I knew that I have to become an engineer.
Granted, the American dream means something different to everyone, but that’s also the beauty of it. James Gatz had to work hard for everything he had earned, “His parents were shiftless and unsuccessful farm people... The truth was that Jay Gatsby, of West Egg, Long Island, sprang from his Platonic conception of himself” (Fitzgerald 104). Gatsby didn’t want to live the life his parents had, he wanted to pursue fortune and fame, so he decided to follow his dream by running away and working his way through many hardships. This hard work and determination is what makes the American dream so unique because only in America can someone work so hard to go from being dirt poor, to having endless luxuries and living the life they want as Gatsby had done.
My father and I visited my uncle’s grave recently and my father told me that without me, he would still most likely be depressed about his brother. He said that even though it hurts knowing he can’t be with us anymore, he’s glad to have a son that makes him smile and laugh constantly. He told me that I was the light of his life and to never stop making people smile. He thanked me for helping him get through that rough patch in his life and with the big move to Rancho. I never felt so good in my life and discovered that making people laugh was what I was born to do.
It is almost two in the morning, and we still have not been able to see her. Five days have passed by, and the presence of my mother was non-existent. School is out for the weekend; time to have fun and mess around and the sight of her brings a smile to our faces. The days fly by fast, and she goes missing once again.
Coming from A Mexican family, I along with my siblings are the first generation to have been born in the United States. As a child, I lived a great life. My only worries were of missing the paleteros, ice cream man, or being frustrated because nobody in my neighborhood wanted to buy my mud pies, but never was it that I would fear the fact that my family could be taken away. It wasn’t until I was older and heard more comments about there being a thing as “illegal” immigrants when I began to worry for my parents, however, at the same time I began to realize all the suffering and challenges they go through and have gone through to give my siblings and I the best life we can get. Immigrants are an important part of America, yet they don’t get the awareness they deserve.
