However you couldnt read my dad, the army had hardened his face long before I was born and I had never seen him show an emotion that didnt involve the wrinkling of his forhead and the raising of his voice. As we turned into the entrance to the hospital and entered into the Intensive Care Unit I still watched to catch the glimpse of my fathers reaction. What i was not expecting was my own reaction, we walked slowly into the room where my nana laid. My aunt was glued to her bedside. Tears flowed quite heavily but the usual words of comfort seemed lost and unspoken.
She acted as if nothing had happened & the next day took David to the hospital, trying to convince the doctor he has fallen off the top bunk of the bed. David declared, “But my fear kept the accident our secret. I knew if I ever told anyone, the next “accident” would be worse.” Once, David was dropped off at his Aunt Josie’s house & tried to escape. Mother found out about this & she smacked, punched, & kicked him until he crumpled to the floor. She also crammed a bar of soap down his throat & to think David attempted to escape his aunt’s house, because he actually missed her.
She told me Mister Jeffrey became very upset with her and claimed she doesn’t care about his feelings and never has. She told me he wouldn’t even come to sleep in their bed that night. She said that this morning Mister Jeffrey was still angry with her and when she tried to speak to him he wouldn’t even look at her. At this point Miss Hilly was crying again. She told me that finally after a few tries of speaking to him that he just flipped out on her.
Yes, I think that the company man was a workaholic and didn’t have anytime for his family and that’s why his children were always silent around him and him and his wife had a divorce. Being a workaholic doesn’t just affect your family, but also yourself too. I think as time went on he was noticing that his family didn’t want to be around him anymore and Phil was getting depressed over time. That’s why he became over weight and died at an early age. No one was really surprised at this because he was a heart attack natural, but still
The only differences between this case and the one shown in the book; is one the situation, in this case, was de-escalated, and two; the warning signs, and media coverage shown in Fahrenheit 451 were disregarded because people were too absorbed in their ‘families’ in their ‘TV parlours’ to show any sort of interest or attention to the outside world. When Montag was trying to get people to see, to understand, he had a ‘conversation’ with his wife, Millie, with him saying ‘Jesus God…How in hell did those bombers get up there every second of our lives! Why doesn’t someone want to talk about it…I don’t hear those idiot
I went to play with my friends, but they were mean to me. I walked into the coat room and hid behind a big puffy coat until I heard my teacher yell that recess was over. When I got home I went straight to my room and began to cry. I didn’t want to tell my parents I was retarded. I didn’t want them to know.
At last, my father half opened his eyes”(Wiesel ). He was trying to protect him and keep him by his side as long as possible, but the reality was much too different. His father passed and He could barely show emotion: “I did not weep and it pained me that I could not weep. But I was out of tears” (Wiesel 112). He was so emotionally drained he could not weep when his own father died, one can only begin to imagine feeling that
He didn’t really have any understanding on Sonny. On pg. 561, he tells us, “Sonny just moves back, inside himself, where he can’t be reached.” Sonny would just keep his thoughts and feelings to himself. This probably made it more difficult for people to read him, which is why his brother never understood him, or even tried to understand. But by the end of the story when he finally got to hear his brother play his music, and do what he always said he wanted to do, he finally understood everything.
I hated myself every time I had to tell them mummy was too tired to play in the garden or to tackle the walk to the nearest park. I knew they would grow up to hate this condition as much as I did but I felt helpless to change our situation. In the year that followed the diagnosis, I allowed the endometriosis to take over my life, slowly destroying every aspect. I had previously achieved a successful career in banking. After ten years of hard work and tears, working my way up from the bottom of the career ladder with no real qualifications, juggling nurseries, schools and child minders, missing sports days and Christmas productions, I had finally achieved an incredible position and I was truly proud to be a Branch Manager.
He recognized her kindness to someone she didn’t really know. One day, she was cleaning in room and notices a picture of her mother. She confronts him as to why he has these pictures of her mother. He emotionally replied, “ I have those pictures of your mother because she is my daughter, which makes me your grandfather.” She was astonished by his words. In that moment, she cried immensely to her grandfather and asked,” why did you hide this from me this whole time?” He says, I had too much anger that your mother left me for some man that I didn’t approve of and I have this regret that destroying me till I got the opportunity to get to know you.
