He doesn’t do anything but just wait for things to happen. For example, He expresses his anger at the entire family for just sitting around and waiting for Addie's death. And in a moment of fierce tenderness he thinks to himself, "It would just be me and her on a high hill and me rolling rocks down the hill at their faces...until she was quiet..." His wish to be alone with his mother is seems fairly selfish, but turns out to be the closest thing to love that is found in the novel. Jewel's description of the family as buzzards waiting for Addie to die turns out to be fairly accurate. In a sense all of the Bundren's except Darl and Jewel were buzzards who used Addie's death to feed their own desires.
Death and New Beginnings This short story “The Moths” was written by Helena Maria Viramontes. When I first read this story I didn’t really find it interesting or didn’t get what this story was really about. I knew that it was going to take me awhile to understand this story because I just wasn’t interested in it. By reading this story over and over I was able to somewhat be able to get what the story “The Moths” was about and try to interpret what I thought about it. To me this story is mainly about a young girl trying to find her identity.
The Help Response Paper Through out the book there were many situations we’re groups are together, and divide. Individuals in “The Help” have either separated themselves form groups or learned to conform in them. When Mae Mobley was young she was never around adults because it was Aibileen’s job to take care of her. Aibileen always taught Mae Mobley about equality which will possibly make hard for her to be excepted in a group. Not because she unable to socialize, but because of the groups she’s around aren’t accepting of her learned beliefs.
Unfortunately, in the process of obtaining an education Dee abandons her family heritage replacing it with a new “modern” way of life. Mama tells the story of Dee’s visit to the family home from college. In “Everyday Use” the narrator, Mama, characterizes herself and her younger daughter, Maggie, as uneducated and ignorant; however, one will find although they did not obtain a college education like Mama’s older daughter Dee, Mama and Maggie are far more knowledgeable of their own heritage than Dee. Despite Dee’s college education, it becomes obvious that when it comes to family heritage she is the one who is ignorant not Mama and Maggie. As the narrator, Mama, describes herself it is evident she has low self esteem.
For both of the abortions that she had witnessed, her job was to hold the baby in order to keep it in the birth canal. The one mother who had an abortion was having the abortion because she already had three or four children and really did not want any more. The other mother was single and felt she would not be able to care for the child; when the nurse asked her why she did not put the baby up for adoption; her response was “I do not know how it would be treated”. As the procedure took place, the reactions between the nurse and the doctor greatly differed. The doctor acted as though nothing wrong has been done or that it is not a big deal; on the other hand, the nurse felt sick and nauseous.
During this period, the dead body is never left alone, and the family members also give a person time to go and talk to the deceased and some of them even scold the dead asking them why they left the other people mourning for their death. Some of the families put in some of the personal items that belonged to the deceased inside the coffin of the dead such as jewelry, and they dress them with regalia to prepare them to the next world. During the mourning period, pipes are smoked to help communicate with the dead, telling them not to cause harm to the living and not to let the living follow the dead soon. The time that would spent on the ceremonies of the burial practices depends on the culture, some of which believed that the body is supposed to be disposed off
They’re lives had completely changed with no slaves and their southern way of life extremely altered. Bayard was one of the only people who was not gravely effected by this and opted not to follow the “southern code” when he chose to let the man who shot his father live. He realized that his father had done a lot of things in his life and eventually it would come down to him being killed. Bayard didn’t feel it was right to kill him and avenge his father when his father lost a duel, and had killed so many people already. By ignoring the southern code he comes to defeat time because he changes his morals as time progresses unlike most southerners and Bayard
Part two: Most women are using some method of birth control when they discover that they are pregnant. No birth control method, even sterilization, is 100% effective in preventing pregnancy. Most women “do everything right” but happen to be in the 1 out of every 100 women who becomes pregnant despite using some form of birth control. K. Review problem, and cause, preview solution: Women’s unplanned baby and their birth control failure make abortion and it is society issue. So what can be
A journal Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health was asking women why they had an abortion found that 73% of respondents said they could not afford to have a baby, and 38% said giving birth would interfere with their education and career goals. Reproductive choice protects women from financial disadvantage. Young age is always used to be a reason for an abortion. Imagine a situation when woman is still in high school and doesn’t know where to turn for help; however, I think that in every abortion a human being dies, but abortion changes lives
