It was a poor community; crops were not often grown for profit, but for merely sustaining the lives of many in one household. Nujood’s family was forced out of the town as a result of Nujood’s sister, Mona, refused to marry a man there, and their father drew his jambia out of anger. This is against culture, as the jambia is a ceremonial and decorative dagger; the mark of a man. They were forced to leave by the next sun. Shortly after leaving, the family settled in Sana’a.

These blunt comments have made many individuals lose respect for the Toronto mayor, for he is supposed to be set as an example for his city and its residents.
When I was seven and moved to Maryland I felt out of place because I had no friends and went to a new school. At this age, I was timid and making friends was not an easy task so I spent my first year or so living without close friends or family. This was a sad time for me because this was supposed to be the most exciting and carefree time of my life and had nobody to share it with. Reading Baldwin's essay made me realize how traumatizing being secluded from society can feel, but on a higher level. I now believe that he is correct that the differences between whites and black will always exist but they have decreased in significance over the past few decades that have passed since the essay was

During this time, Gates was also struggling. He injured his knee and was forced to sit out for a long period of time due to surgery. His girlfriend was also pregnant with his baby at this time. Both of these young men had many obstacles to overcome. In his senior year, Agee went on to take third place in the state, but because his grades were lacking he was not accepted to a four year university.
Only a few went on with their education but if they did they would usually leave and go far away to places like Egypt and Athens. One big reason they did not go to school was because they had to work with their parents like weeding, hoeing and plowing. They had to help so the family could get enough food to eat. They didn’t learn to read or write or do math! If I lived back then my school would only be one room and one teacher taught all the subjects.

It seems many people had lost their jobs during the last 6 years, which created less jobs. So many jobs opportunity had been cut of; it was one of the biggest problems we had, because it is very difficult to find a stable job out here in California. During the last year on December, I’ve been searching around for the best job I can find as possible, but the jobs available were mostly at the fast food restaurants, and very low wages.
