Sommers is trying to teach her daughters that there is more out there and that they can be optimistic, despite what may be going on in our lives. I agree with the writer because I believe that as long as you have life there is hope. Sommers wanted to teach her daughter that they can use their mother and grandparents as examples to better themselves and learn from it all. “To learn a personal eloquence I could never learn at home”. The writer was not able to learn how to speak articulacy because she had inherited a language from her parents.

Indentured servants VS Black Slaves; The Masked Similarities With the popularity of Tobacco on the rise, the need for manual labor of this crop in the new world—what is now known as North America—was also on the rise. Manual labor started out as an opportunity in the eyes of many young, poor Englishmen and women hoping to make a new start in the glorious new world; however, the deception did not hold up for very long. When the availability of these workers known as indentured servants began to deteriorate, the need for human slavery became apparent in the new world. In some ways, these two groups of human laborers were similar, and in other ways they were nothing alike. The indentured servants of the new world and the black slaves of the growing colonies were different because indentured servants were promised a future of freedom, and slaves were the property of their owner for their entire life; the two groups were alike because they were both subject to unfair and cruel treatment from their owners, forced to do inhumane amounts of labor, and both could be punished for running away.

And if everyone lived this way, all babies would be created in love and welcomed onto the world and the ugly challenge of abortion would disappear. Surrogacy is immoral, unethical, and a violation of the nature right to have close connection with one’s biological parent. I find it hard to imagine a woman carrying a baby for nine months and not developing a strong bond to the child. Having two children of my own, I know the strong feeling of love I felt for my children long before they were born, and I couldn’t begin to have handed over either one of them to someone else. I also wonder about the feelings of the surrogate mother’s own children.
Both Baby and Anne are very smart, but Baby isn’t recognized for it. Instead she is put into a practical learning class. “I didn’t bother explaining that I’d been on the honor roll at my last school. That I had to go to a program for kids who had learning disabilities made me sad beyond words.” (Page 202, O’Neil) Baby deserved more, considering she was on the honor roll. But because she had to go to a detention centre, the social worker basically forced her into going to this class.
If the teachers didn’t care about their education, how would you expect students to stay in school when the teachers don’t care whether they attend or not. However, Sam was lucky to have Carla, the counselor at Seton Hall, who did more things than she should have to motivate the doctors to succeed in college. “She feared that if one of us dropped out of the program, she risked losing all three of us. She vowed not to allow that to happen, and she became our angel, guiding, protecting, and pushing us as we traveled
Women are only willing to project a image that they can easily live up to even if that means setting the bar a little lower than it has to be. In my own experience my step mom worked as a para-educator at Castleton Elementary School, working with students with different kinds of learning problems, from A.D.D to Down’s syndrome. Then she had opportunity to apply for a teaching position within the school, but she could never see herself teaching in front of a classroom. If she hadn’t worried about what other para-educators and teachers opinions were, then maybe she would have taken that chance. If see had looked back at her teaching history, then she would have realized that she had developed the skills of a good teacher over her five years at the school.
