Molly, suffered serious trauma after Tilly was removed from her care and taken away, when Tilly returned, Molly could not remember her daughter, or didn’t want to. That part of her life affected her personality in a way to make her cold and distant until she starts remembering what happened, another great part that the audiences can use to connect with the characters.

Overall the producers of these texts have design all the characters in a way that everyone had a problem or a flaw.

Also she told Mr. Barnett that he should have helped the first customer that had come in, which happen to be Cassie, Stacey, and T.J but Mr. Barnett had helped some other citizens before them, even though they came in first. Just like Rosa Parks stood up for what she believed in by not giving up her seat, my character Cassie Logan shows she 's brave by all of these acts and many
My mother always warned me that crying is an admission of weakness. With her thick skin and hunched back she trudged and taught me coping mechanisms that she embraced as survival skills. At a young age, I learned to cry silently, to be skeptical, and to always look to the future for happiness. However, as I have grown older and experienced my own challenges I have learned to ignore the lessons of my mother; something that I consider to be a sign of socioeconomic progress for our small immigrant family. The catalysis was that throughout my college years, I had to deal with the prosecution of a family member who sexually abused me when I was a child.
It is a kind of struggle over contrasting narratives, between the mother’s version and the daughter’s invention of the story. In fact, the undermined identity with uncertainties and apparent gaps in the mother’s memory provides fluidity and space which facilitates the refashioning of identity for the narrator. While the memory emphasizes unnamed aunt’s low identity is led by her ethical orientation, the narrative suggests that is a result of social structure. In the process of recreating, the cognition and construction of one’s identity is
Although Ibsen argued that his work was exclusively about the human condition, Ibsen unintentionally created a feminist play. “A Doll’s House” by Henrik Ibsen is a feminist play, as shown by demonstrating the risks of defying societal norms and the burden of gender rules through many of his characters. In Ibsen’s opinion, “A Doll’s House” was primarily about the human condition. However, humanism and feminism are both centered around people and their values.
“By 1945 I had lied, stolen, cheated, deceived, and even killed,” Marion told the audience assembled Rackham Auditorium for the seventh Wallenberg Lecture in October 1996. Marion even killed a policeman “I felt I had no choice, but to shoot him.” She kidnapped children to save them from being killed by the Germans.

Therefore he beat him up until his mom jumped in his place and got beat up instead, she would do anything for her children.

In Tim O’Brien’s “Sweetheart of the Song Tra Bong,” Mary Anne Bell’s evolution into adulthood is driven by her acquisition of the knowledge that she is a predator. From the beginning, she is absorbed by the carnage and danger of war, even “fascinated by it. Not the gore so much, but the adrenaline buzz that went with the job” (O’Brien 7). Mary Anne accepts, and even welcomes, her predator lifestyle, and presents herself as “someone perfectly at peace with herself” (O’Brien 17). Mary Anne may crave the kill because it gives her a goal and an objective, while life as Mark Fossie’s wife would not provide such a purpose.
Moreover, O’Brien’s miscellaneous word choice, and fragmented sentence structure play a huge role in reflecting his thoughts on the war. It helps readers understand the significance of the chapter, and connect us to the author on a deeper level. O’Brien’s short, and repetitive sentences mirror his personal struggles, and allow the audience to learn more about him. For example, the last sentence of “Spin” is, “..nothing to remember except the story.” (39)
O’Briens novel The Things They Carried is a unique text because each chapter tells an individual story. The work also becomes misleading because the chapters are told from different viewpoints. Rather than O’Brien using a traditional flow of chronological order, he tells the stories of his comrades to appeal to the reader at different times in the book. The reader can also begin to question O'Brien's reliability and truthfulness because of his uncommon style. The purpose is O’Briens way to cope with his experience in the Vietnam War; he retouches each memory individually depicting the story of his tragic experience at war.
