“Heritage is something that your parents instill in you, your morals, your heart, mind and soul”. “Culture is something that changes over time and is passed down to the next generation and so on”, these two things should be something that is important to you. In Alice Walker’s short story “Everyday Use” and Bharati Mukherjee’s personal essay, “Two ways to Belong in America” by Bharati Mukherjee the comparison of Maggie and Mira show two women who hold on to their original culture while Bharati and Dee want another life. These stories make me wonder the same question. Why do the younger siblings appreciate their culture more?

Dramatical irony is written to show the audience suspense when the audience knows something that the character does know, but the other characters doesn’t. We know that Sedaris knows nothing about the man besides the fact of him riding the plane to his mother’s funeral. When Sedaris couldn’t handle that this man was over exaggerating his sadness of his mother passing, Sedaris concludes in his head extraordinary things: the sick mother in a hospital bed, calling her son who can’t visit her because his wife “was getting her stripper's license,” “He'd been asked to speak at his son's Alateen meeting,” and rudely replies to his mom, "I'll come at the end of dogracing season" (5). Just when you think Sedaris would calm down, he quickly mentions, “She rides to her death on a lumpy gurney and he flies in Business Elite to her funeral. The man killed his mother with neglect and because of that I can't watch a movie on a plane?”
“They have their heads above the ice, but cannot bend their necks. ”(Aligheri pg. 261) Here, because Nero had committed treason against his country of Rome, his eternal punishment must be getting bound to a stake in a mock-like amphitheatre of Rome, in a blaze full of fire. Here, bounded by his extremities, (same way he murdered Christians) Nero’s soldiers would shoot arrows directly at his body, while lions gnaw at his dismembered carcass. He would forever live in the ultimate guilt of betraying his people, by forever being tormented in a setting where he profusely called home.
Macbeth, and all those defying his rule were driven by dread. Macbeth’s thirst for power was speedily overtaken by paranoia after murdering King Duncan, resulting in him having even his best friend murdered, not to mention Macduff’s wife and children.

Hope after her first outburst, continues to describe moments of her parenting situation where she feels angry. She talks about how her husband had to take many flights and having no time to spend with her. Edelman after describing the situations she was put in states that she felt as if she “was the whole damn circus” (53) to her family and she never had time for herself. Edelman’s tone of disgust reasserts the anger she continues to feel. By using coarse language (damn), Edelman can portray the large effect co-parenting had on her anger.
The number just isn’t enough to build a bias. Alcohol or prescription pills aren’t included in those findings, and alcohol and prescription drugs are very much something that can be abused…heavily. It is unfortunately very common for those addicted, to exchange groceries for a smaller amount of cash and use it to buy drugs, alcohol, cigarettes. I could explain for hours the ins and outs of the TANF program but in short summary, it is very political and contradicting.
