I will still be scared of turning out like my mother. I'll still fear that one day I will be the spitting imagine of who she is, inside and out. She left her children for something that took over her life; left a great man for someone that made her hate herself, and chose to continue to live that way despite how many times her children have begged her to change. I'll still fear turning out like my father, his past abusive relationships with my mother and the mother of his other three children, and the past abusive realtionship with him and myself. Maybe I'll fear the fact that they both have their blood running through my veins and I have watched the struggle and the pain, and in twenty years I don't want to live the same way.
It says, “But I feel as if my tongue has been locked inside my mouth since the moment I saw my mother airing the quilts just before the bombs fell. I try to communicate, but although the words form inside my head, my tongue and lips will not cooperate” (Staples 88). This showed me how hard the loss of her family was for Najmah. Her behavior changes because she stops talking and loses hope. This was an important moment for me to see PTSD, because she wants to talk but she cannot force herself too.
(MIP-1) Najmah faces the symptoms of PTSD, as shown through the book Under The Persimmon Tree. (SIP-A) Witnessing a death of another is the cause of PTSD that has affected Najmah. (STEWE-1) When Najmah saw what had happened to her mother and brother this was one of the causes of PTSD because,“My heart hammers as if it wants to escape my chest, and it is the only sound I hear apart from the heavy ringing in my ears." (Staples 82).
She watched her mother die slowly and she watched her dad struggle to take care of her. As a young kid or even as an adult watching the person who is supposed to raise you and teach about love, and everything you need to know in life will greatly affect what type of person you turn into. One of the most heartbreaking things you can go through as a child is watching your mother slowly die and then watching your father struggle to take care of her and provide for the family. Ida went through a lot, her mom was sick and then her mom’s sister Clara came to help out and caused a lot of drama in the family. All the fighting put a lot of stress on young Ida, “Mama charged Clara with sneaking into the house like an enemy, charger that she had always covered papa, berated her for taking advantage of illness to have her way” (283).

Outside you could hear screams of laughter as us kids danced around in the multi colored rain. Orange, yellow, and red dances around us as the leaves were slowly plucked from their tree. The screams of laughter slowly turned into screams of terror. I had slipped in the cold wet mud and something triggered my cousins dog to attack me. It went from my face

To me veteran is a person who risked their life so I could live in a better country. Throughout America’s history, we have depended on our soldiers to keep us safe and fight for our country while at the same time fighting for their families and their lives. Without veterans we couldn't enjoy the little things that we do now, we wouldn't be free. They fought for the people who couldn't fight for themselves. I believe that the soldiers who stood on the front lines to fight in wars are very brave.
All I see is ice and snow and little red and amber dots scattered in the distance, the tale and marker light of a fellow truck driver leading the way. My thoughts are deep within me as I hear the crushing of ice beneath the wheels of the truck and the snow dancing before my
Still dreaming of becoming a doctor Maria enrolled in a university but was too weak to attend many of the required sessions. She was suffering from the brain tumor and her right foot continued to drag. After assisting at Mass and receiving Holy Communion, she suffered a bulbar paralysis (impairment of function of the cranial nerves) and died. In Maria’s memory, a day hospital was named after her. It was for young girls and homes for pregnant women who were impoverished.
I know you can win this war!” The reason it’s making me re-enlist is because the people need my help to get their freedom just like my friend. And I will get it for them and my friend. I will do what I can and besides I want to die for honor and purpose for my country than to die with nothing to live for and no reason to
I’ve calmed down teenagers, blood still oozing from their wrists. I’ve woken up from crying in my sleep because of the motor vehicle rollover patient who we weren’t able to save. And the next day, I’m in school and nobody knows anything - and that’s how I like
In my visual, I have incorporated black silhouettes of the characters in the poem as they are unknown and we are only being told that a mother is being destroyed by the birth of her three children. “Someone she loved once passed by- too late” this quote says how she has changed to someone who only lives because of her children. Her ex- boyfriend has been lost amongst her role as a mother and she has become some different until she meets a past lover. The theme ‘loss of identity’ is explored in this stanza because this unknown woman doesn’t know who she is anymore or how to think about being a
