Today, millions young adults are facing real problems: lack of job opportunities, housing, and trying to survive in a fast, globalized world. Their knee-jerk reaction is to lash out and blame their parents and someone else. But, sadly, most parents just get more indulgent in response. However, there are other types of young that they only have very little ambition which are better than the selfish one.

He didn’t stop his persistent attitude in trying to make ends meet to provide for his family, in his persistence he managed to find a house to live in, he rode his bike into town to get money and he built a small bar for people that could afford it. Characterization added to the moral lesson because it allowed for the reader to see Jonathan’s struggle.
