He would go out in the rain with his father to gather as many crops as they could to keep their family from going hungry. Jody's sense of responsibility helped him to deal with the fawn's interference with his family's survival. When the fawn started nibbling on the sweet potato vines, Jody worked twice as hard and fast to make up for the loss. Jody would gather extra crops so there would be enough food for his whole family, including Flag. Jody also built a pen for Flag to keep him from ruining the crops.
In the book Behind the Beautiful Forevers, Katherine Boo puts readers into the shoes of slum dwellers in the Indian city of Mumbai. This is a place where the people have to hustle and bend the rules in order to survive and provide for their families. Hardly anyone who lives in Annawadi has a real job. In order to make a living, the people rely on and even fight over the garbage they find which is thrown out by the nearby airport hotels. The hospitals are unclean with no medicine because doctors sell it on the black market, police are only there to help whoever gives them most money, and schooling is hardly even considered due to the lack of funding.
In the two short stories it seems as if the sons’ relationships with their father were quite different, but they also had their similarities because both of them cared for their son. In the story “Powder” the father took good care of his son for he continually tried to give his son what he thought was best. He fought for the privilege to see his son after he already snuck him into a jazz club to see Thelonious Monk (Wolff 1). He was a good dad, for as his son says “He wouldn’t give up. He promised, hand on heart, to take good care of me and have me home for dinner on Christmas Eve” (Wolff 1).
Although it was very expensive it was very important or my dad to send me to a trip to Poland. I never heard the story of my grandfather from him, only through my dad. He was too unstable and my dad did not want him to relive those times. It is a two week trip to Poland with a Holocaust survivor that guide us through what he have been through, we been in all the museums, and the concentration camps. As we have watched the movie about the Holocaust in class all the images that I witnessed came back, I saw the gates with the in craving of "Work will set you free", the gas showers, and the gethos.
For that reason, Holden has many things that he would want to preserve, but has no idea if anything has changed as the days passed. During the story, Holden finds ways to preserve the things that are important to him. Holden wishes to preserve the innocence of others, the innocence of his surroundings, and the innocence of himself. Holden keeps his impressions of his old acquaintances fixed in his head. For instance, he preserves his impressions on Jane Gallagher.
In a way, it reunited the family. Also, the two’s father died over this piano, not only causing harm to his life but adding meaning to his childrens’. “Boy Charles say the piano was the story of our whole family and as long as Sutter had it… he had us. Say he was still in slavery.” Their father, Boy Charles, was taken over by the past. The piano was the entire family’s history and he felt as long as Sutter had it, they were all still enslaved.
Starting with temporal frequency, eventhough no scene or time has been repeated, many actions and events forebode other potent ones. The fake Mrs Mullwray/Ida Sessions is seen wearing a weird hat that resembles what a widow would wear at her husband’s funeral; soon after, Evelyn Mullwray’s husband is murdered and she wears a similar hat. At the Mullwrays’ house, the gardener says “bad for glass”. Since he’s a foreigner (Chinese most probably), he could easily be thought of as having pronunciation problems and have meant grass, which is true as a later scene shows; nevertheless, the mentioning of glass anticipates the discovery of Noah Cross’ glasses in the pond. To this can be added two key forebodings.
Never to be in debt, and never to be lazy is what he advises his readers to do and for himself. He stated that he will do the same. Everyone needs to help themselves by not being lazy and doing their work if they want to be successful. There will be enough time to sleep when a person is in the grave, but for now, everyone must work for their well-being. These colonists looked upon Benjamin Franklin as an idol and wanted any and all advice they could get from
I wouldn’t be able to get up in the mornings dancing to music trying to get ready for work, would not be able to sing along with my kids on the way to school. Could you imagine a long car ride with a 6 year old and a 4 year old with no music? I don’t even want to think about it, I can just imagine how boring that would be. If I had to go one day without listening to music I am pretty sure that I would be the grouchiest person around. Who wants a grouchy person around when you are in a good mood?
After Dixon stereotypes these Chinese tourists, he is in his office with Viktor Navorski trying to explain to him that he has no country. In this scene he seems to stereotype non-English speaking persons as being ignorant. It appears that way because his attitude toward Navorski shows him speaking somewhat degradingly, not showing in any way that he cares for Navorski’s situation. This concept that Dixon is stuck in his job is a way of perception called occupational role. This is where “the kind of work we do often influences our view of the world” (Adler and Proctor 100).
