Many people do not care if loyalty doesn’t return to them. They still continue being loyal. Monique, Gerald’s mother, never really cared if Jordan didn’t love her, or wasn’t loyal back when Gerald would scream at her for example. The evidence is on page 79 when Monique calls her children liars. She was being loyal to Jordan, and not even trying to listen and understand her own children about how they’ve been abused and are going through pain.
Although shy, I loved my friends and siblings and thought the best in every situation. It wasn’t until I grew older and received the guidance and outside perspective of my adopted mom that I realized how awful my home life was. I’ve since begun analyzing my behaviors and emotions that ran through my mind as a child to realize how to overcome the abuse I’d endured. The six books I’ve chosen as mirrors identify the emotions and behaviors I see myself having at a young age of nine or ten years old. Though I might not have realized why I was the way I was back then, I know now that I have developed into the woman I am today because of my home life and experiences as a child.
Society chooses to believe a fake reality rather than facing the real problems going on. This false reality prevents society from being aware of the government's choices and intentions. The story Fahrenheit 451 is a perfect example of this because in the story it portrays the loss of human connection, censorship, and emotion. For example, in the story Montag loved his wife Millie but, after she was gone he realized he did not love her, even though they were married for ten years. In the society Montag lives in, everyone is “happy” and no one ever knows why they, they just know it is the right thing.
While the movie is successful in capturing the emotion felt by Chris and the hardship he endures on a daily basis, it is unsuccessful in sending the right message and fails to mention how all of the other “Chris Gardner’s” out there are unable to achieve wealth. There are millions of people in the world who are in poverty that do not go from rags to riches. From a realistic point of view, the extreme wealthy only make up 1% of America, therefore showing that not everyone can become millionaires just from working hard. The kind of success that Chris Gardner achieves is extremely rare. The filmmakers do a good job of distracting the audience by appealing to their emotions, when in fact the movie is inherently contradicting itself.

I never thought I would become a confident person, but I finally conquered my insecurities. At fifteen years old, most teenage females experience low self-esteem because they are in the process of discovering themselves and gaining experience. Also, females are very media driven, believing that they have to weigh and look a certain way. I could relate to this to when I was in grade ten, I was an outgoing and friendly person; however, deep down I was just a shy and insecure girl. I remember how much I loved to dance.
His parents were always fighting and his mom was obsessed with him. I could relate to the fighting that he had experienced. That is the interesting thing though, no one is as they seem on the outside. I told him stories about my scar that ran deeper than the skin, I told him about my life, I told him about my past. He soaked all of it up like a sponge, being my number one cheerleader and always lifting me up.
The next few weeks were hard, but I endured. The constant picking and teasing about my best friend being a girl really affected my self-esteem to the point in which I didn’t want to speak to anyone. I was scared that I would be judged for being myself, and that is the worst feeling in the world. Anytime

She believes no one can dare stop her in her actions because if one tries so, she will insult him physically and emotionally.
The memoir has a linear structure, going chronologically through her life. I felt like I was definitely more interested in her story as it went farther along, however there was never a spot where I wanted to stop reading. Her teenage years and on were quite gripping, seeing her coming into her own as a young woman while trying to keep the family together emotionally and economically. I cringed at times, and at others I was truly inspired by her unconditional love for her family even when they treated her so poorly. As the reader you can really see the strength she gained as a child and it inspires.

The father was in need of $200 in order to be set for life, but the only way to get it was by taking it from her mom unknowingly.

Minerva was the second oldest and the strongest of the Mirabal sisters. “She was always into her wrong and rights” and that’s why so many people (Mostly women) honor her till this day. Trujillo was a dictator of their country who never liked anyone to go against his word and if they did he’d kill them and make it seem like the person did it him or herself .

‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me!’” (Fitzgerald 130). Gatsby continues to use words that convey possession. He expresses that Daisy “never loved” her husband Tom as if Gatsby knows this for certain. Gatsby never asks Daisy how she feels about this; he feels compelled to speak on her behalf because he is just so certain of her feelings towards him.
Only the idle rich: Jordan Baker, Daisy and Tom Buchanan, Nick Caraway. They survive and they are allowed to go on being careless. As Nick writes, “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy - they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness.” They aren 't cruel or malicious, they’re just careless - they don 't care too much about Myrtle or Gatsby or their daughter or even each other. To live without a care in the world is supposed to be the dream, right? Everyone wants a carefree life.
