In the book, Morrie also said, “Forgive yourself before you die. Then forgive others” because you don’t know when you will see them for the last time (Albom 164). Morrie has an interesting viewpoint when it comes to forgiveness. I agree that it is important to forgive people, even though you are allowed to take your time with it. There have been instances where I found it difficult to forgive people that hurt me for a while, but I worked continuously towards pardoning them.

(M.Hipp)The US Marine Corps Memorial is a memorial in Washington DC that portrays “[the United States] gratitude to marines...who have given their lives in defense of the United States of America since
Their differences are very different, they had to do completely opposite issues. In summary, there might be different challenges in life, but all you have to do is face them, overcome them, and learn. As you can see, times can be rough. But no matter what happens next you have to keep fighting and never give up. My mum and Buck both had their hard times, they fought through them and kept moving forward.
Fight To Hold On Someone once said, “Change is never easy. We fight to hold on and we fight to let go.” This life lesson quote goes along with the character Sal. She had to go through a lot of difficult changes that happened in her life. She fought to hold on to the good things like stay in Bybanks and keep believing her mother is alive. And she fought to let go of the things she wanted to let go of like the real meaning of them living with Ms. Cadaver.
The grandmother displaces her ideas that sitting like that (legs crossed) is an indication of an imminent doom that her granddaughter will face, just like how her daughter, and herself came to be. How she has lived her life when she was younger, was something that she felt would most often than not become a pattern among women. The reality she has lived scared her, and was a victim of her circumstance. She felt that she didnt have the power to change her situation, and thus thats what she predicted upon her kin. The granddaughter as young as she is has her own eyes, budding paradigm and hope.
Bailey would do anything for them and is happy to do so. Farah Ahmedi is a strong minded girl that is fighting for a way to get passed the border into Pakistan. Her and her mother have a struggling life and are trying to do whatever they can to survive. If they don’t get past the border they have nowhere to go. Based on what I read, “”I felt desperate to get through, because the sun was setting, and if we
Pain makes it harder to forget someone as well. The narrator thinks that if the emotion goes away, so will the pain and the memories, which may be true, but the narrator is not entirely certain. However, she demands her heart to hurry with the process of forgetting, hoping that this solution will
Kathy argues, “I should’ve learned from Frank Lee that you could be too lonely and too hungry. You might try too hard to connect. You might do something horrific and then be condemned to your solitude forever” (Dobie 29). This was a later reflection of how she took troubled dilemmas of Frank Lee. As a result, she desired being involved and did not comprehend the overall choices she made until later in her life.
CHAPTER 9 – LOSE AND LEARN “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. Because it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” ― Maya Angelou, American memoirist, poet, and civil rights activist Oftentimes, people go through life’s troubles. Yet, rather than searching for ways to ameliorate their pressing situations, they escape reality and just live by the hopes that the troubles might disappear eventually over time. Upon returning, the problem apparently stays. Feeling hopeless and desperate, they continue with their ways of nurturing negative and passive mentalities; and thereby, practically accepting their fate and quitting from moving
In the end of the book, Kambil begins to feel pain towards the fact that not only was Aunty Ifeoma and her children were leaving, but also father Amadi too. In the midst of all these trials and travesties, she found a way to overcome them. She had to change in order to live life to the fullest. That is what I believe that Chimamanda is trying to convey in this story to readers. This is relevant to today’s society because it holds true for everyone, not just one person.

At the same time, as she becomes more mature and fed up with her home life, she tries to break free from her familial roots and move to New York with her siblings. In spite of the fact that the Walls children raise the money and move to New York, their parents follow them there and decide to live on the streets without a home.
I might always have health issues, and I may not ever be able to relax. However, that struggle and that desire to overcome has inspired me not only to get back to the person I was before the surgeries, but to better myself because of it. It’s that drive that inspires me to stay up studying well after the sun has set, to endure the pain during my physical therapy sessions, and most importantly to see that everyone must overcome adversity no matter how much it may affect their life. I see the way my mother put her entire universe on hold to care for me, and how agonizing that must have been to watch her daughter nearly slip away. I see the little girl with the plaid comforter, she was so tough, hoisting a smile onto her face when the rest of her body was in so much pain.
Her love for them and her need to protect them was challenged by their deaths, and her PTSD only further enforces the fact that losing someone who one cherishes and lives for will change them irreversibly. (SIP-B) Najmah 's first instinct is to run away from her triggers in order to save herself from pain, but she simultaneously prevents recovery by building walls which keep people out. (STEWE-1) Najmah, as a war refugee from Afghanistan, had been incredibly susceptive to mental disorders such as PTSD. In the Middle East, refugees are likely to suffer worse from PTSD due to the loss of family. With no one to support them because of the common deaths of those who are close to them, Afghan refugees are often victims of mental conditions such as PTSD.
Nao states: “I will write down everything I know about Jiko’s life in Marcel’s book, and when I’m done, I’ll just leave it somewhere, and you will find it!”. In other words, writing deeply affected her life by it being of her great grandmother. Someone who she admired and hoped someone would find out about. This seems as something important to her, writing about her great-grandmother who was the only person that Nao really cared about and was important and interesting enough to write about. She decided to start writing about it because she knew she was going to kill herself and she owed it to Jiko to share her great life story, a memoir of someone she greatly saw as someone special to some special stranger.
If I had chosen my “only choice”, I wouldn’t be where I am at in life today. My daughter is my greatest blessing, so I feel so much hurt for a woman who has not chosen the path that I did, and I genuinely hope that they are able to handle their decision, because if I had done that, I would not be able to handle it. I would wrestle with so many things, constantly, such as the woman in “The
