The songs Three weeks by Marco Antonio Solis and I talk to her everyday by Los Tigres del Norte are both songs that try to give out the message about how their moms suffer when their sons grow up and forget about them for many different factors. For example: college, getting married, work, taking friends in priority, get addicted to drugs, etc; and when we finally start to worry, change, and try to talk to their mothers again it is too late because their mothers die of loneliness and absence of them their children. The song Three weeks is about a mother who raises her son to be a very strong independent man and when he grows up to leave to college he forgets about how much his mother had done for him. He would never call or visit his mom. His mom would alway go to church and pray for him
It needs many individuals work on various parts and in various ways. From his perspective he was approaching America to improve the quality of life for African Americans through a gradual process of creating more opportunities for success.

“In the antebellum decades, the black institutions that had appeared during the revolutionary era in urban areas of North, Upper South, and – to a lesser extent – the Deep South grew in strength, numbers, and variety. This was the result of growing black populations, the exertions of the African American elite, and the persistence of racial exclusion and segregation.” 6 African Americans in the Upper South had to endure hardships when earning a living. They built their own institutions for employment to be able to provide for their family. They created black churches to house schools and meeting for multiple organizations. Antislavery groups usually met within the churches to discuss ways they could stop slavery, they also used the churches as to harboring fugitive slaves.
While reading the second part of New Kids Yasmeen and Mohamod stories really resonated with me both for similar reasons. Yasmeen came to American with a complete family, her parents and siblings. Through the course of just one year her entire world has flipped upside-down. She lost both parents at different time and had to take on the role as caretaker for her younger siblings. She did this while also having to attend school.
In addition, Chris Kyle used passion when it came to being there for his family. Chris Kyle’s wife talks in the book “American Sniper” about her and Chris’s disputes throughout their marriage, but they got through it all and she’s glad they did. Chris had talked about how even through all the distance between them, they still had “some kind of connection” and that would be what both Chris and Taya held onto (Kyle). Chris was deployed 4 times, but he had still managed to keep a bond with his family. Chris was a new father and had yet to bond with his kids, after both of them were born he was deployed again, only being able to see them for a brief period of time.
Through thick and thin, weslaco has always been there with me from the start. Not only was weslaco like an important person, but it was also the place where many significant events occurred that made the individual I am. Growing up with one brother and sister, we were all raised by a single mother. She worked too hard to give us just enough. She was an immigrant just like my siblings and I, so her getting a job was difficult.
She became a caring loving woman who influences everything I have and will every do. On December 5th, 2011 a woman who loved me so much passed away, leaving me with a mountain to climb of depression and a event that would change everything that I knew and loved. When I was a young girl my grandma was my person, my rock, my everything, every time their was a problem I would go to her a she would help me through it. She really helped me when I was six and my parents informed me that they were going to get a divorced, at that age I didn’t understand why I thought that everything was great in our family. During this time my grandma took care of me greatly and made sure I was loved and cared for.
Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to make a difference and help anyone in need that I possibly could. From the start of my childhood, I can recall helping my mother care for my great grandparents, so they would be able to live out the rest of their lives from their home, instead of in a nursing home. As a young child it was extremely difficult to live with and watch my loved ones deteriorate as they got older, as their condition got worse and worse, and saw my mother having a difficult time keeping up with caring for both of my great grandparents 24/7, it put a lot of stress on the family. However, I am grateful to have been able to help my mother care for them. Growing up in such a caring and loving household made the situation
Since my brother has left for college at UT Chattanooga, me and my mom have gotten closer in that way as well. My mom has to play the mother and father role for both me and my brother and I am very grateful that she is so good at it, and does everything she can to be the best for me. She has taught me to not take things for granted, and to keep looking forward and not backwards. She has taught me how to manage every issue that could possibly come my way. “My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.” Mark Twain said this, which made me laugh and smile because I know my mom has had some troubles with me, but she always fights for me and does everything she can to teach me all the right things.

Taylor comes from a nontraditional family. She was raised by her mother, who worked long hours as a housekeeper to support Taylor and herself. Her father, Foster Greer, left her mother when he found out that her mother was pregnant. Her mother doesn 't mind that Foster left; in fact, she often tells Taylor that "trading Foster for [you] was the best deal this side of the Jackson Purchase." As Taylor matures and is exposed to horrible things that fathers can say and do to children, she feels quite lucky to have grown up without a father.
