Do we trust anyone or anything unconditionally or is there an edge, and if we cross that edge there is no going back? Trust can be all the important things, yet it can also be all the insignificant things that make the difference – from time to time it can be about life or death. Trust can be rebuilt, but perhaps the fear of making a mistake is right under the surface. The short story “Crossing” was written in 2011 by Mark Slouka, who is an author. Mark Slouka’s short story follows significant themes such as trust and love.
The reader gets a glimpse of the emotions involved in this parting: Obasan who will not let go of Grandma Nakane 's hand or the forced attempt of happiness on Grandpa Nakane 's side. It might strike the reader as strange that there is not an open exchange of emotions but Naomi explains this attitude just a few lines later: ' ' We must always honor the wishes of others before our own. We will make the way smooth by restraining emotion. Though we might wish Grandma and Grandpa to stay, we must watch them go ' ' (Kogawa 151). The characters in Obasan seem to employ the restraint of emotions as a coping mechanism for the injustices they have to endure.
And once we forgive we learn to see the beauty in our lives rather than the struggles and pain that we have gone through. “‘ I could be wildly wrong. But my sense of you is that you’re a good person, not a bad one.” … This, though, was different– hearing himself forgiven freely, by someone he trusted. He wasn’t sure, though, that she knew enough to forgive him. He told her the story in detail.

It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do” (Lee 149). Atticus’ quote of courage foreshadows the results of the trial, he knew the end result of the trial, but he fought against it anyways, although he did not win. Another act that justifies Atticus’ courage is keeping Calpurnia despite Aunt Alexandra’s strong disagreement. Atticus said: “She’s a faithful member of this family and you’ll have to simply accept things the way they are” (Lee 182), this reveals Atticus’ courage because he kept Calpurnia even though there are controversies of having an African American house member as shown by Alexandra.
Another reason for the author to put those characteristics in this Prometheus is to have people think they have these characteristics or want these characteristics.

What do you think the meaning of true friendship is, maybe it 's knowing that you trust a certain person with any secret or physical object, somebody who would take a bullet for you, or maybe it 's somebody that you 've grown up with all your life. Everybody has their own definition of ¨true friendship.¨ I personally believe that true friendship is when two people can trust each other with just about anything, they let you succeed and fail on your own, but they always help you when it is most important. I dislike it when people say a true friend doesn 't ¨snitch¨ or lets you copy off their paper for test or more important assignment. This shows that they don 't see the other person as a friend, and more as a ¨get out of jail free¨ card. Some people would argue by saying that it shows the person’s willingness to help, but I believe that the only thing you’re helping them with is failing to prepare for responsibilities.
