In the opinion of Hans Junior, his father was part of an old, decrepit Germany--one that allowed everyone else to take it for the proverbial ride while its own people suffered,” (Zusak, 104). Today, similar disputes happen between families when children support something their parents don’t. Sometimes, children are able to reunite and reconcile with their parents.

This type of sibling interaction is a major theme in Michael Cunningham’s White Angel.

Throughout the short story he continues to hint at his dependency on his older brother with phrases like “I lean into Carlton’s certainty as if it gave off heat” and “I run to Carlton for protection” (380, 389). [ANALYZE] Similarly, in We The Animals the protagonist overtly displays a dependency on his older brother Manny.
This song has many inspiring and relatable quotes and the whole song is about how some people lose their self because of what this world has become. How fake it is, people change and lose what is real. Another quote from Fake Smiles by Phora is, “All the ones I hope will stay, are all the ones that fade away.” The people that are there for each other with trust and love are sometimes the people who leave and forget. People hurt in different ways and react differently. Some are never healed, but it makes it worse when the important people walk away.
