One can see that she is hurt immensely by the fact that “she would’ve sold us to the devil if she could.” (82) As she talks about her mother and the actions she is willing to take and her mother uses the excuse that she is “too busy worrying about her own life.” (82) One can almost feel the pain distorted in between the lines of the text. So as I go into “Never Marry a Mexican” by Sandra Cisneros, she shall be the character I will be talking about it and doing my literary analysis upon. I will describe her personality as she is growing up and then during her time with the father and then how her emotions remain steady as she is becomes involved with Drew, his
He is now twenty five years old and happily married to his high school sweetheart, whose mother convicted him of rape. Unable to find a job, living in a house where he is not allowed to be within a hundred feet of a school or children, and also unable to find a decent job. Is this fair? Many people will agree that the statutory rape laws are soundly aimed at protecting immature girls from seduction. The consensual sex laws that are in place now are harsh and the court should take into consideration what this conviction will have on this young adult’s life.
I shall never meet you, brother Not for years, anyhow; Maybe thousands of years, brother. Then I will warm you, Hold you close, wrap you in circles, Use you and change you Maybe thousands of years, brother.” The poem describes fire’s ability to warm as well as to consume, just as the relationships we see in the family, particularly that of Anna and Kate, can both nourish and destroy. Anna and Kate emotionally sustain each other, for instance, even as Anna undergoes painful medical procedures in order for Kate to survive. At the same time, Kate feels as time past and her disease over
Miss Moore would like to see the children to come out of their predicament and become determine to make a change in their life. This can be connected with Dalton’s “Hotario Alger” ways of living the American Dream. Miss Moore believes that if Sylvia and her friends were motivated enough, they would become something bigger than their community. Alger also believes that anyone can live the American dream and that “each of us is judged solely on her or his merits” (Alger, 272) This means as long as you have the fundamental mindset of becoming successful, no trials or tribulations that come in your way will prevent you from achieving. Miss Moore also believes that Sylvia and her friends had learned a valuable lesson where they discovered that there is more to life than what they vision in their community and that they can strive to be the best.

For many years women have been trying to gain more respect from other women but mostly men, so that they can be equal to them. This happens in work, schools, and in the home Cool For You portrays a lot of patriarchy situations. For example when all the students prepare to go to the Arsencia Beach party, they chose a male rather than a female to pick up the liquor for them. This displays male dominance because they are taking control of getting the liquor. Another situation is When the mother feels that her son terry got suspended for drinking because he was suppose to play a male figure in the house since they have no father and he disappointed the family by getting drunk.

For instance when he tells about the cancer to Simon, he first thinks Jimmy is joking, but as he goes on to tell him that what he is telling him is actually true then Simon, who was talking continuously to him up until that time is shook and almost frozen. Rest of the trip they travel in his car to the Powwow Tavern was in complete silence. Jimmy has always used his ability to find the humour in every situation, which sometimes leaves him in a situation where he ends up making a joke at a time where he should not have. For example when he told about his favourite tumour to his wife, " Doctor showed me my X-rays and my favourite tumour was just about the size of baseball",(Pg. 2) jokingly comparing it to a baseball even going to an extent to call him Babe Ruth, Roger Maris or Hank Aaron, and then mentioning how he would go to Cooperstown to exhibit his X-Ray pinned to his chest pointing out the tumours, while sitting in the Hall of fame lobby
Shockingly enough most of these preoccupied or negligent drivers were new young drivers. The unfortunate part is that everyone knows it’s not safe to text while driving; yet, they continue to do it anyway. Take, for example, 18-year-old Mariah West who was a devoted texter. Everyone in her high school senior circle had warned her about texting while driving; they had seen her car swerve and knew what she was doing. Sadly enough last May, it cost her life.
