Love Is Never Silent When watching the film, “Love is Never Silent,” I felt sadden for Margaret, because as a kid living with deaf parent in a hearing world, she was forced to grow up fast. It must have been hard on her when she wasn’t able to share the knowledge that her parents are deaf, and have to code switch every time, never in between; never a balance. She must have felt out of place, alone in fact, as no one she knew was struggling like her, no one she can relate to. But luckily she got Mr. Petrakis, who I thought played a crucial role in her life. As he was there for her, he listened to her and gave her great advice.
The thought of bringing posters home for their daughter caused so much fear and worriedness in Marji’s parents lives because the government forbids any westernized life and the posters contained a western band on them.

Repeating the word constantly reminds the person she is talking to is a mom, which conveys the idea that her identity to the orphaned boy will remain the same.
Through the mother we can guess that Emily, when she was old enough to notice her surroundings, hated the care she was given outside of her mother. From going to her father’s relatives to daycare she changed both physically and in her demeanor. Not getting a glimpse into Emily’s head forces the reader to infer what Emily feels towards her mother and her situation based off of the descriptions noticed by her mother. No one around Emily saw the uniqueness her mother did, this leads to the assumption that she became very depressed. If the story was changed to a different perspective the emotions of the mother would get lost or forgotten.
The narrator claims she can never "total it all," all of Emily's pain from childhood, and she mourns that Emily has had to keep too much inside of herself. Finally, the narrator asks the figure from school only to make sure Emily understands that "she is more than this dress on the ironing board, helpless before the iron"
