In reading and studying “Speak” By author Laurie Halse Anderson , my character analysis has taught me how Melinda dealt with her problem and what she went through to get her life back…it also taught me to choose my friends carefully and that keeping your anger and pain bottled up can hurt you more than you know. Reading this book taught me that no one should judge anyone’s feelings because no one knows what they’ve been through and how they
One of the hardest things to do as a parent is to let our adult children actually be adults - free to make their own mistakes, and live their own lives. It's very difficult to let go of the parent of a child role - and be the parent of an adult. All the time when tell my mom “not to worry” about me and she responses with “You will understand when you will have a child and become a parent”. When it comes to Maynard’s store, I don’t see anything wrong when Maynard went through her daughter’s e-mail account. Because every mother would worry about her daughter if she does not
While she is upset by this, she instead thinks about the things she can do such as, “writing, teaching, raising children and cats and plants and snakes, reading, speaking publicly about MS and depression, even playing bridge” (Mairs 48) In the essay Mairs talks about two women, both with MS, living completely different lives. One lives as though she’s not disabled, while the other suffers through it, almost giving up her life to MS. When she was on her way to California for a family trip, she experienced an exacerbation but went to California anyway because she wasn’t sure whether or not she’d ever be able to make it there again. Mairs refuses to give in to the negative thoughts because she doesn’t want to make any decisions for future Nancy because she doesn’t know what future Nancy
This book is a very good inspiring story. The book was definitely very engaging the way the author wrote was very nice. This book deals with how people should hold on to their dreams and talents and no matter how much problems you face you should never give up. As I was reading this book it was as if I was with them there the way it was written was very well. Many events in the book were very sad and touching when Foster the main girl in the story keeps a pillow case just with her dads stuff in there after he died in the army, she lives with her mom and her boyfriend named Huck who isn’t as nice to Foster at most times making her call him Elvis thinking of himself as a really good singer making Fosters mom the backstage singer and some days he even hits her mom at times and finally one day they get into a fight making Huck break into their house and hitting her mom so badly that they have to run away from their house very fast finding a safe place with Huck coming behind them with his car chasing them and soon they outrun him and arrive to West Virginia.
Task 1 Case studies Saskia has only recently joined your setting and seems withdrawn. You go to the corner where she is sitting by herself and tell her you are going to read her a story. As you settle yourself close to Saskia and open the book, she begins to cry and asks you not to hurt her. How should you deal with Saskia’s reactions and comments? I would first reassure her and make her feel comfortable either by giving her a hug or by sit away from her and reading her the story I would not deal with the issue myself but will inform the line manager straight away.
This means that since everyone was hitting and picking on her she didn’t give up. She actually uses the bullies’ offense as her defense. Its quite unique because this is something you don’t see everyday but her grandmother told her to thank the people who called her names.Its a brilliant idea by her grandmother, yes indeed these words were hurtful, but Melba was clever enough not to show it. Doing this will confuse the bullies to thinking that she doesn’t care what they said or thought of her. I chose this book because i actually read this book long ago when I was younger and I decided to expand on my little prior knowledge of this book “Warriors Don’t Cry”.
They don’t easily give up on what they want or believe in. When Skeeter learns that Aibeleen’s son Treelore writing a book about his experiences inspires Skeeter to write a book that will show the help points of view. Many maids agreed to participate and we see that she doesn’t give up until the book it’s published. Even though there is times she feels like giving up it’s the best thing to do, but, she doesn’t. She is very persistent.
Later in dedication to her friend Athena changed her name to Pallas Athena, knowing that as a god she couldn’t bring her back from the dead she did the only thing she could to honor her friend. While Martha Stewart was incarcerated she had her best friend, Mariana Pasternak, right by her side constantly supporting her while the rest of the world was bad mouthing her and completely destroying her image. Mariana was honoring Martha while she was in jail with a book she had written, she thought that if people read about Martha from the point of view of someone who truly knows her they would hopefully change their new negative views of her. Athena is also very graceful in her movements and by watching Martha Stewart on TV, at award shows for example, her movements were also very graceful, she is very elegant. Martha is extremely intelligent, graduating from Barnard College here in New York City with a double major in History and Architectural History, and Athena was considered high intelligent and very quick-witted.
Her reasoning is because; women are reaching out to stop all the pain of being alone, and why they soon find out that was a mistake. This article has shown me what advertising does to women. It is very upsetting to see that kind of abuse happening every day. I would never want that to happen to me or anybody in my family. Works Cited Kilbourne, Jean.
She probably feels awkward, having something normal and feels like she should not have normalcy, even though, she wants it, because she has never wanted it before. But in the end, she grabs the letter out of the trash, and puts it back in her mailbox so she can check the mail, like everybody else, tomorrow. This furthers the idea of normalcy and how badly she wants it. All she wants is to be like everybody else. The story of The Fat Girl is similar to the previous because the main character, Louise, is also in
