My grandmother has acquired the most sincere respect from me, and is the true backbone of our family. My grandmother is truly a self-made, independent woman, and I will return to her the happiness she has given to me. I often wonder what the past was like for my grandmother, trying to fathom how the lucky hands of life are dealt so unfairly. By looking at her now, I can only imagine the hardships she has endured, and the many obstacles she has hurdled as the years transpire. To illustrate, I often study her hands, the painful imperfections, which took years of working multiple jobs, making sure life for her children was as carefree as possible.
“We all go through the same things-it’s all just a different kind of the same thing!” (194). Mrs. Hale feels connected to Minnie as an oppressed woman and believes that by helping her, she is helping all women. Mrs. Hale has a lot of guilt for not having been a better friend to Minnie and for not seeing her more often. She continually voices her deep regret for refusing to visit Minnie. “The picture of that girl, the fact that she had lived neighbor to that girl for twenty years, and had let her die for lack of life, was suddenly more than [Mrs. Hale] could bear” (194).
But even so, I long for the day of my home-coming. And if some god wrecks me again on the deep, I will endure it, for I have a patient mind. I have suffered already many troubles and hardships in battle and tempest; this will only be one more” (Homer 66). Not only did Odysseus leave a perfect and gorgeous goddess, but his reason was to return to his imperfect, earthly wife. Loyalty is clearly evident in this situation.
Although many people were against it and did not seem to try and learn more about this program, she was able to complete her husband’s last request. One of the saddest moments throughout the whole film is that of Cody. Cody is a female who suffers from reoccurring cancer and was also one of the most shown persons in the film. She lived her life as a graceful woman, yet in the end the pain that came with cancer was too much to deal with. Her family at first were shocked and astonished with her decision on the, but when the time came they knew nothing would stop her
Adele states numerous times this song was “fueled by heartache” (Murphy) which can be compared to Etheridge’s point of view stated in her article, “… all of my raw, unharnessed emotion would, forever forward, be placed into my song writing” (Etheridge). The lyrics are a story of Adele visiting her ex-lover in the future to find that he is happy without her may not relate to a lot of people, but her lyrics, “Never mind I’ll find someone like you/I wish nothing but the best for you too/don’t forget me, I beg/I’ll remember you said sometimes it lasts in love sometimes it hurts instead” (Adele) still affect a lot of people emotionally. The subject of the song “is familiar but the detail she colors it with are vibrantly tactile and resonant” (Fairall). It is the actual combination of the music and words that makes the song so powerful, “…starts low, and then moves higher and louder for the chorus” (Ewer). The music complements the words and
Monique states, “You know, Alexis, this is what keeps me alive – the power of words. Words live forever they point out the right direction and express feelings simply without removing what complexity exists in them. The words you were never able to find explain your suffering – the absence of those words prevented us from growing together” (14) this quote clearly illustrates the struggle between Monique and her partner Alexis. Due to the absence of Monique’s father and mother, Monique grew as a very lonely child. Now as an adult Monique has a hard time adjusting from only being in her own company to sharing and being with someone other than herself.

One day she wouldn’t bark, / this sadness nearly broke my heart. I acquire abysmal alteration / but abscond alternatively with abyssal anguish I asked my mom do we have any batteries/ she ignored me and continued her Pilates. I had loved her for a year on end/ she stood by me and was my only friend. But I knew our goodbyes were far from done/ I will miss you forever and on. My tears weighed a million tons/ like rivers that gush and run.
Negative changes can result in positive outcomes. During my lifetime, I have experienced many personal changes. Such as: losing my grandma, my sister being born, getting promoted at my job, getting my CNA, graduating high school, and finding out who my true friends really are. The change that has had the biggest effect on me would have to be losing my grandma. My grandma was my role model, my best friend, the person I spent every day with.
