This is significant because it shows that Carley thinks Mrs. Murphy is getting close to her so she keeps pushing her away. On top of Toni and Mrs. Murphy, Carley doesn't let the boys, Adam, Daniel, and Michael Eric, get close to her either. Adam and Carley don't really have that much of a relationship together. Their relationship is pretty much non-existant other than the fact that they are foster-siblings.
In addition, she didn’t want to go further in the relationship because Ron was a paralyzed veteran person and after all her girlfriend was against the war, so she had no more value of relationship towards him. The whole story engaged me till the end because it had ups and downs with full of heart touching emotions. The conflict that confused me a lot and it was hard for me to understand that why the government didn’t realize the poor situation of the veterans, their needs and what they wanted to say? In particular, when the soldiers ended up
The tension within their family pushes them more toward depression, making Loman uses death as a release, and Ilyich feels even more painful about his illness. However, the caring and support from the Loman family causes the essential difference between he and Ilyich, death for Loman is nothing to afraid of because part of the reasons he committed suicide is that he believes that it can bring freedom to not only him, but also his family. However, Ivan Ilyich spends a long time trying to accept his family and the misfortune he has encountered, and his death is not as meaningful as it is supposed to be because his family shows him little care about him even after he passed away. Even though the realities Ilyich and Loman has experienced are similar, the love and support from family eventually makes their death have different meaning. While Loman’s suicide is a release for both his family and him, Ilyich’s death is nothing special but the end of his own
Holden is not really there when his brother died the way that Conrad is. Holden feel sad and depressed but he does not really want to kill himself and hasn’t really tried. Conrad is in my opinion dealing with his grief the worst. Conrad tries to kill himself but is saved by his father after he noticed Conrad was not in his room. We get the feeling Conrad’s mother blames him for the death of his brother and wishes that Conrad would have been the one who died in his place.
Although, this is not the only conflict in the story. Not only does the narrator struggle with helping his brother but he also blames himself for Sonny's outcome in life. He promised his mother to look after Sonny when she passed because "he ain't going to have nobody to look out for him" (259). The narrator seems to take on the responsibility of Sonny's fallen actions because he was off in the Army and left Sonny with Isabel's parents.
The reader may also infer that the mother she may think the father is a bad influence on her son. I think this because of how different the father and son act. The father is a rule-breaker and does not plan ahead well while the son does not like to break rules and always plans ahead. Although not much information is told about the mother, you can predict that she would have been very angry if her son had been brought home any later than Christmas eve. You can predict this because when the father wasn’t allowed to drive through the snow he stated, “Your mother will never forgive me for this,” (Wolff 34).

This show that the if a norm goes to sealand they will feel left out and be discriminated among the others. Although the society that david had came from was discriminated towards anyone who had a slight deviation in the body or were considered blasphemous person. The society of waknuk follows the rules from a book called Nicholas’s redemption, in which it states “And God created man in his own image.
Gender inequality is a social justice issue that is prominent in several societies as it is a direct reflection of the systematic power distribution amongst the two binary genders. This form of inequality is reflected through a set of adverse behaviours projected from one individual to another, known as domestic violence. Individuals perform the identities that is associated with their gender role because it is what is culturally acceptable within their given society. Judith Butler’s theory of ‘Gender as a Performance’ depicts that the practices that individuals repeat and perform assure the elements that an identity is composed of. This theory is an embodiment of domestic violence as it establishes the inequality amongst the different genders, by allowing the male to perform his dominance, causing the female to feel inferior to this.
Women and men both have equal opportunity for living and staying in equal relationships. Thus it has become essential that both the genders should give their contribution for ensuring that the relationship should be managed in effective manner. There are various reasons for which a women stays in a abusive relationship and foremost reason is fear due to which females prefers to stay and not get separated. In any abusive relationship when the partner gives threatening for killing the women or for creating harm for the life of the person (Cvitanić, Possamaï and Touzi, 2016). Domestic violence is a serious issue which is faced by women all over the globe and it is imperative that serious measures should be taken for ensuring safety and security
Although they did care greatly for Chris and his sister, they had not shown that in enough ways to prevent the tragedy of Chris’ fate. The fact that his parent were there for his physically, but not mentally had a great effect on him. According to the movie and the book “Into The Wild”, I perceived that the major catalyst for Chris to leave was his parents. Even when he was younger, he had to protect his younger sister from their parents when they would produce fierce fights that led to some physicalities. So in turn, Chris ended up being fed up and couldn’t handle the stress, which concluded with him to leave.

Once it becomes too late for juniors ’s sister to avoid a life of alcoholism, his mother tries to guarantee that juniors ’s destiny will be different from his father and sister’s: “ ‘Don’t you ever drink,’ my mother said to me. She slapped me.
In James Baldwin’s story “Sonny’s Blues” it is showing that there is an obligation toward brotherly love. The love between brothers is something that doesn’t fade away. When Sonny was in jail it showed that what his older brother was trying to tell him the difference between what is right and what is wrong, before Sonny got caught was not to do drugs. Doing what is wrong can have a negative impact on our families, friends, our communities and the relationships with our siblings. By watching out for our younger siblings after a parent passes away is the biggest responsibility for the oldest child to have to bare.

There is nothing quite like the bond shared by siblings. Especially by those of the same gender. Through horrific ups and downs, even situations that would tear even the best of friends apart, siblings somehow manage to always patch things up and continue on.
