He believes that he is always right, he is abusive, and is always being short-changed by life. Even though his wife is impartial to his actions, she looks at him with an “anxious face at his shoulder,” which describes how weary she is when in the presence of her husband (Faulkner 1961). My father was also abusive. I was not yet born so I was not victim to the abuse but my older siblings and mother were not spared. Similarly, Sarty’s whole family lives under a blanket of fear and anxiety due to his father’s insecurities, and resentment for people who belittle him.
Parents play a big part in a child’s life, they are our ‘guiding light’ as to who we are as a person. Kate Keller from ‘All my Sons’ is in a constant state of denial about the death of her son Larry, still believing that there’s hope that he is alive. Due to this hope she is seen arguing with the people around her about her son’s life causing an internal turmoil; not allowing her to move on with her life and progress and cement her identity. Her current state of mind is not beneficial for those around her, causing them to also question whether Larry is still alive and where fault lies. A similar situation occurs in the Australian Classic “Muriels Wedding” when Bill Heslop, father of Muriel Heslop, is found to be a deceiving human being, hiding an affair from the wife and holding onto past losses.

Despite the fact that he and his wife have been “mean and fought dirty” he knows they must break down these walls of anger and resentment, “no matter how much work it requires” (442). Dr.Ted Huston stated in the article, Will Your Marriage Last by Aviva Patz: that “Our culture is to blame for perpetuating the myth of storybook romance, which is more likely to doom a marriage than strengthen it” (449).

There are no exact guides on how to deal with the stress and fears that life brings our way.
The Spirit in Work Thank you Josh And Alexandra for a really great presentation, you set the bar high. Jack Hawley's book, The Spirit in Work, came at a great time to reflect and bring to life his ideals. The start up of school has really made it clear who is leading with love and who is leading with fear. Reflecting on my own past style of leadership in the classroom, I would say I was a mixture of both. My fear that student's wouldn't take me seriously lead me to make choices that were far from loving.
