Welty said, “Neither of my parents had come from homes that could afford to buy many books, but though it must have been something of a strain on his salary, as the youngest officer in a young insurance company, my father was all the while carefully selecting and ordering away for what he and Mother though we children should grow up with.”(Welty, 391) I remember my father giving me his old Hardy Boys books when I was about eight years old.

Sadly but true, millions of kids in America receive nothing for Christmas. The reason they don't get gifts and toys for Christmas is probably because they are growing up in a poor family. Putting toys in the desperate hands of unfortunate children during Christmas is the selfless goal that the non-profit organization Toys for Tots has.

Itachi spent much of his time researching the history of the village from the writings their ancestors left behind. Because no other child his age cared about the ancestors of the village, Itachi grew up isolated from his peers to the point he didn't even care about being liked or even making friends. His isolation seemed to extend to even his own family as he rarely had dinner with them and his own father Fugaku, couldn't figure him out.

When the Nine-Tails found its way to the Uchiha district, Itachi ran with Sasuke, determined to get him safe from harm.
(Could show that the soldier who died was a virgin as he had not had time to “sew” his seeds and have children before his early death.

All over the world many people are faced with financial problems and some are extremely wealthy.
