Through Friar Lawrence, Shakespeare shows us how shortsightedness will avert our true responsibilities. Friar Lawrence only sees the good effects, but pays no mind to possible mishaps, which causes him to make bad judgments. When Romeo and Juliet fall in love and want to get married, they seek Friar Lawrence to fulfill their desires. At first, Friar Lawrence opposes because he believes that the pace of their relationship is going too fast, but gives in “For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love”(Act 2.3 #98-99). Despite the fact that Friar Lawrence had already thought through some of the consequences, like their relationship is not actual love, he only thought through half of it.
She was taking a very high risk in taking the potion because Friar Lawrence did not even know if it would work and she herself questions if he wanted to poison her. In the end of Scene 3 she cries: “Romeo, I come! This do I drink to thee.”(Line 59) She was so completely dedicated to Romeo that she risked her life and the possibility of marrying Paris in taking the drink. Juliet decided to do this because she was attempting to secretly run away with Romeo, abandoning her family. This was a brave action on behalf of Juliet because disobeying Sir Capulet, her father, was considered a sin.

They take a newly purchased van, the smell of which causes poor Yunior throw up; so before they leave for the party, Yunior's father refuses to feed him. The van, a symbol of the family's rising prosperity in the US, is a source of pride for the father, but a nuisance to Yunior, whose sensitive stomach is a figurative barometer of his family's troubles: as their prosperity grows, so, too, does his parents' marital discord.

The Topic I love the focus of Jill's essay. So many essays on an influential person have a tone of hero worship as the writer tells us how wonderful Mom or Dad or dead Grandma or Coach or Uncle Harvey is.
