"The Storm," a short story by Kate Chopin, is about the affair between a woman named Calixta and a stable boy named Alcee during a violent thunderstorm. Her husband Bobinot and son Bibi, who trek through the storm to get home, are oblivious to these events. In the end, the family is happily at home with Calixta writing to her other husband about how her vacation is going wonderfully. There seems to be a lot at play underneath these events. By using severe weather as natural imagery, the nature of secrets in a cyclical nature, and contrasting gender issues with inner struggle, Kate Chopin's "The Storm" illustrates the longing for freedom in the Antebellum South.
The most important characters in the story are Harry, the five-year-old boy whose parents pay him no attention, his baby sitter, Mrs. Connin, and Bevel Summers, the preacher. The story starts with Harry being prepared by his parents to go off with a sitter. The sitter complains that Harry “ain’t fixed right” (O’Connor 1) so his father replies, “Well then for Christ’s sake fix him.” Mrs. Connin, being a very religious woman, takes this request seriously as in to fix the child for the sake of Christ. The sitter takes Harry to her farm where he will learn about his Maker and get baptized. She will later return him to his house where his parents are getting ready to throw a party.
My husband and I have to go to work. When I got the chance, I talked to my children about repaying their uncle’s goodness. They agreed to pay for his stay in this facility, so someone could take good care of him 24/7. It was hard on my part because he’s my brother after all. However, we felt it was the best decision, even if others think we have abandoned him.
Before he started to teach them, Bromden caught on to what he was trying to do. Bromden says, “Nobody complains about all the fog. I know why, now: as bad as it is, you can slip back in it and feel safe. That’s what McMurphy can’t understand, us wanting to be safe. He keeps trying to drag us out of the fog, out in the open where we’d be easy to get at.” (Kesey 123).
Several Sunday mornings ago, a local church had a missionary as a guest speaker, and his speech appealed to the congregation through his incorporation of ethos, logos, and pathos. The missionary began his speech by stating that he had originally planned to become a pastor after graduating from seminary, but after receiving his degree he felt led to use his skills to assist the less fortunate. He soon joined an organization and has spent the past eight years in Latin America helping others while teaching Christianity. In the previous statement, the missionary attempted to appeal to the congregation through ethos. He discussed seminary school and his missionary experience in order to establish credibility as a trustworthy man of God.
Jesus, the groom, loves the bride, the Church so much that he gave his life for her and will care for her forever. Marriage has “existed eons before Christ and Christianity” (Bausch 214), but before Christ, marriage did not do anything. The second image of the Church is pilgrim. In this image, it teaches us that the Church is a community and it is on its way to its final destination, which is heaven. This image also “ In prayer, the pilgrim Church is associated with that of the saints” (CCC 2692).
On the onset of the story when Kino first discovers the Pearl, it is a symbol of happiness and newfound ability. When he looks into his Pearl, shortly after having procured it, he sees visions of himself and his family in the future.This is evident in the quote: “Kino looked into his pearl...he saw Juana and Coyotito and himself standing and kneeling at the high altar...being married now that they could pay”(24). The visions he sees are varied with scenes like him buying new clothes, buying a rifle, his son Coyotito going to school and so on. Yet, even with the diverse visions, they are all of happy ideas, which was the current atmosphere. This
The conflict Toni faces has such a tremendous impact on him that it besets his dreams. Influences are strong especially when you’re young and it’s coming from your parents. “Once I had told my mother about the dreams, and she said they were visions from God and she was happy, because her own dream was that I should grow up and become a priest. After that I did not
I am not sure I will live up to his wit, but there are a few things I would like to say about Uncle Donny. Anyone who knew Donnie knows that he had a very strong work ethic. His children tell me that if they told their dad they were not feeling well and might stay home from work, he would respond by saying, “It is just as easy to be sick at work as at home, so go to work.” He was just calling them to live like he did. He never missed work. He was also known to say, “if you love your job you will never work a day in
1 August 21, 2015 Laughter 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.

I never felt so good in my life and discovered that making people laugh was what I was born to do.
