Mama’s plant in A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry is a symbol of Mama’s constant sacrifice for her children and how Mama’s children can succeed on little to nothing. Mama always provides tender care to her plant and her children and she pampers them both as much as she possibly can in order to make sure they are happy in the environment that they have been raised in. She gives everything she has and more to make sure that her children are doing well, but what she has is sometimes not nearly enough. It's very hard to be in a world full of wealth around you and not ever want that luxury for yourself, especially for the Younger
Mothers always know what's best for their family. The Grapes of Wrath, By John Steinbeck, gives many great exemplifications of the transformations and the type of character Ma Joad is over the course of the novel. The novel also proves that Ma Joad knows exactly what is best for her family. She overcomes deaths, hardships, and famine, while also growing overall as a person. Ma Joad is an indirect character in the narrative.
The play, A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry and the movie A Raisin in the Sun directed by Kenny Leon, which was a version of the play created in 2008, both have a lot of similarities and differences.

The main thing is that they buy a house and water, the main character, losses the rest of the money from an investment gone bad. The movie and the play has Meany similarities, some in evolving the setting and the characters however there are other similarities too.
The daughter feels like it's a world away from California. She also hasn’t seen her aunt since she was a baby so she feels like a stranger to her. However, her mother feels like moving her there for the summer would be good for her relationship. Also it would help her mom get her degree faster and they wouldn’t have to move anymore. To conclude the stories “ Confetti Girl” and “Tortilla Sun” had a lot of tension through the narrators and their parents.
This scene is very important because it finally gives her justice and closure about how much her mother loves her. There are a community of men and women called the Daughter of Mary.

Ruth is the stay at home mom of the Youngers. She is the wife of Walter Lee Younger, and is just as motivated for accomplishing her dreams. She is the second head of the family because of how she tries and guides others like Lena Younger. That is because of how she wants a better life for her child and family as a whole. Even if everyone in the family wanted a better life, Ruth was the one affecting everyones’ dreams with her circumstances and personality.
The survival trait she possesses is having hope and never giving up. “I could have never imagined that it would take 14 years to live together”, (Ted Talk, 2:48, Hyeonseo Lee). First of all Hope is not something everyone has, it’s a very important trait. Some people give up really fast but people who have hope don’t. Hyeonseo Lee never thought she would leave her family for 14 year.
I began to think about the impact my decisions had on the people in my life and realized that I could learn a few lessons from Jeanette. Jeanette puts her siblings first, knowing how they felt about their parents and does her best to provide for them while she is living at home. She also works hard and never gives up on her dreams. Finally, maybe the most important lesson from Jeanette is about family. Despite all the things Jeanette’s parents put her through she finds it in her heart to forgive and welcome them back into her
My mother did all she can so I can survive and enjoy what life to offer. When things get hard my mother never give up on me. For example, she built the mud house by herself which to her few days to build for us to live in. My beautiful mother taught me great principles as a young age that I would never forget. Not to give up on things enough when life through something that you don’t want.
In the memoir, The Glass Castle, by Jeanette Walls, Jeanette and her family reference the building of the glass castle. In my opinion, the glass castle is a metaphor of hope for the Walls family that they will always be together when they plan their dream house. Even though Jeanette’s dad, Rex, knows he is not going to build the castle, he keeps referencing it to give the kids a reason to keep moving forward and to have something to be excited about in their different lives. One of the first mentions of the glass castle was on page 14 of the memoir. As Jeanette Walls claims, “When Dad wasn't telling us about all the amazing things he had already done, he was telling us about the wondrous things he was going to do.
