My father is an alcoholic, which is why I believe that he used violence towards my mother. I am not excusing his behavior, but I believe that if my father did not drink, things may have turned out differently for my family. As for myself, I have been deathly afraid of ever picking up a drink or drug. I believe that if I did, I would never be able to stop, and I would also fear of turning out like my father. 9.
Then I became accustom to going to church, and even in the summer time the church had summer programs that I attended all summer and they would feed us lunch and we would play games all day and this was like very special for me. When I grew up and got married, and had my own children, I found myself doing the same routines with them. Now that I live in New York, I searched for (2) two years to find a church group that reminded me of home. Once I did, I became a part and joined the church group, and to me it means a family away from family, and it makes me feel complete and safe that I have the group of people that relates to me on the level that I was accustom to when I was growing up. I can identify with the older people sitting on one side of the church and the younger generation sitting on the other side, I can identify with when someone needs a help and hand, the church group is there to fill in like a family for them.
Poor John has never met his dad. His mom sometimes calls him “the fling”. I feel really bad for john because there’s nothing more that he wants then to meet his father. John would always vent to me how he wishes his mother would just tell him who his father is. He also felt as if his father was hiding from him but I’d often tell John “your dad can hide from you, but he can’t hide from God.” I felt bad for john at times, but he didn’t have to live as a dwarf his whole life.
Willy thinks that if he were to tell the truth to his kids, they wouldn’t respect him for not being as successful as he claims to be. Outside influences have driven Willy to believe that he is not built for the salesman job. Furthermore, many people chase after jobs that they do not enjoy in order to keep up with what society believes to be acceptable in regards to standard living. Biff, Willy’s son, knows that he is not built for the business world. He would like to settle for less and do something he enjoys.
Robyn Tisi October 20, 2011 4th/6th hour Fall Break 2011 During my Fall Break I went home back to Crownpoint, New Mexico--where I was born and raised. I went home to spend time with my grandma, Rose, and great grandma, Annie. I also went to visit my old school Tiis Tsozi Bi Olta, where all my old friends attend school. Visiting home felt great. Especially being back in our house.
He spends his days sitting around waiting for Porphyria to come around and spend time with him. I think he’s a very selfish man in the way that he takes her life and doesn’t really have in mind the impact it could have on her family, all he thinks about in that short period of time from when she arrives to when he kills her is that he wants her to himself ; he doesn’t want her to go back to her husband. I don’t really sympathise for Porphyria. I think she is selfish for what she is doing ; she is going behind her husbands back and having an affair with another man. However I do sympathise for her in the way that she cant get a divorce.
Then protective feeling grew stronger with each passing weeks. Desire and need to understand the world around me in order to protect my baby spread out in to every level of my life. I had concerns that never existed before in my mind. I learned to put somebody else needs as a priority. Now I spend my previous personal time to bonding, playing, attention giving to him, making sure that he has not only my love and worship, but all nessasary material things in life perior to me.
You would think because he missed his son’s birth, he would try to make up for it and be a great father. But he was never around to raise his son and do fatherly things with William, like teach him valuable life lessons and such. As an adult, William tried to let his father know that their relationship wasn’t steady because William only knew so much about his father, and the rest were fabrications. All he wanted to know was the truth, and Edward kept telling tall tales. This only caused the deteriorating relationship between father and son to
Almost every time child spend without father, just with their mother. Meanwhile at night time, father maybe too tired to spend time a little with children. This condition make children lost a father figure and make a damage to their mental, attitude, and behavior. So, a balance between father and mother are need for their children, without that children will lost their way. Another reason why both parents should assume equal responsibility in raising a child is because children need love.
With lots of children to take care of Mayella was only able to get two to three years of education and she had no friends. This is why when Atticus asks her about her friends she thinks he is making fun of her. After having to live a life like this we don?t know why Mayella would like to defend her hard-hearted father, but she probably did this because she was scared of what
