She is first revealed as a farmer’s wife, insisting her husband, John to stay with her during a storm, but John ultimately makes the decision to leave and visit his father.

So we are going to skip a couple years, because it 's not my story to tell.To sum up the part of the story we are skipping, Kim experienced: abuse, homelessness, many jobs, and many doubters. Not once did Kim’s daughter ever see Kim break down and cry, give up, or hate the world.

The significance of Kincaid’s title “The Estrangement” is to describe her deteriorating relationship with her mother. In the story, Kincaid explains how she stopped talking to her mother a few years before she died because she always made her feel like her accomplishments weren't good enough. Estrangement is the fact of no longer being on friendly terms or part of a social group and during the story Kincaid looked at her mother as a hero; but eventually developed resentment.For example, in the first sentence of the essay Kincaid said “ three years before my mother died, I decided not to speak to her again”. I think Kincaid’s essay does not have a thesis or claim; the entire story contradicts itself. In the beginning of the essay she talks

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
Christian author Madeline Kirksey said she was fired as the manager of Children 's Lighthouse Learning Center because she refused to go along with parents who decided to recognize their little girl as a boy. A six year old girl has been attending a private school in Katy, Texas for the last four months as a little girl. The child’s parents are a same-sex couple, two men, who “decided” that she was transgender. The child’s parents cut the girl’s hair short and workers at Children’s Lighthouse were told to begin calling the girl by a boy’s name. Kirksey said her religious beliefs made her approval of the change impossible, and she felt that she had a duty to protect the girl from possible bullying and help dozens of other children and their parents, who she said deserved to be told about the change.
