But although the family seems happy at the house on Mango Street It also seems its not the best house as the little girl describes.” It’s small and red with tight steps in front and windows so small you would think they were holding their breath” (319). Moreover, the little girl showed the reader the struggles they had while living at the other houses. For example, the family had to pay rent every month, or share the yard with anyone they had on the bottom floor. They didn’t have old rusty water pipes which prevented the family from having to run out and fill empty milk gallons up with water. It seemed that the move was sort of a relief for everyone specially the little girl in the story.
Maria lived in the north, in Matagalpa which was known for its mountains and its hard living. People from Matagalpa were different from other Pacific cultures; they worked alone on their small plots of land. The land was small and not fertilized, so Maria and her family had to work extra hard to grow food to survive. Maria’s dad assigned the job of spreading the fertilizer on their land to Maria. Despite all the hard work they were very happy and working together on their land made them very close to each other.

Back when I was younger, I’d say from the age of 2 until about 13, we lived in the house on the corner with a giant plum tree in the backyard. My grandma owned the house two doors down, my cousins Mickie, Dannie and Cam were kitty corner to us and my other cousins, Penny & Tarin, lived in the house directly across the street. Our plum tree was great for climbing, swinging the tire swing, shading our barbeques and so many other wonderful adventures dreamed up by my sister and me. The one thing it was not great for was plums. They made such a mess.
Her mom always knew her way around a good deal and therefore she hustled to put them in private school. She also traded cleaning services for a neighborhood doctor to make sure her kids had good healthcare. Ursula adds that her mother was her biggest influence for joining Xerox. Her mother Olga was pragmatic, focused and extremely practical, but was the ultimate self determining person. In 1980, Burns first worked for Xerox as a summer intern.
People continued to cut down forests to build new things in that area which never died down. A strong economy was needed throughout both the Neolithic Revolution and the Industrial Revolution because without a strong economy, families would be unable to afford food for their children which would lead to a decrease in population. A significant change that occurred economically was the amount of work children were able to do. Before in the Neolithic Revolution, children would work on plantation farms as long as it took to finish the job. Every single person in the family worked in the same place and children were treated as if they were adults.
“The women know the worth of this rich source of nutrition and they happily collect the food in their bags.”(Constantakis 63) These vegetables are a big deal to these families’ everyday cooking. Since they do not have money purchase or to take their families out to eat they are grateful and they see these greens as a blessing. Unfortunately people like Lorna learn to live a humble life due to their jobs and low incomes. “Las casitas near the gray cannery” (Cervantes 1) or little houses help the reader picture how they live. “The neighborhood is not a place where well-to-do families live.
Harjo’s beliefs are shown when she visits New York to meet her newborn granddaughter. She tries to perform a sun ritual for her granddaughter so the sun can meet its new relative; however, it is a cloudy day and the buildings block her view of the sun. Harjo carries out the ceremony anyway because nature is a part of her faith and the “sacredness of life;” she takes the sun or nature with her even when it is not visible, just as Christians believe in God even though they cannot physically see Him (114). Kamps’ view of trees relates to her life directly; the tree cares for and houses birds just as she cares for her family. As her belief in nature deepened, her respect for it grew; she began to “like digging in the dirt instead of cursing each weed” in her garden (136).
While Michael and Mama are walking in a real nasty part of town Michael says, “ I got your back.” it is a simple phrase, however, Mama knows he won’t let anything bad happen to her. Another character Michael can be compared to is Travis. They are both young and innocent and have never had a bed to their own. It is a small connection but it its and excellent example of the horrible poverty they have in common. In The Blindside, Mama shows Michael his room and he says he has never had one before, she asks him if he is talking about a room to himself and Michael says, “No, a
No jobs equal no dreams to build In my opinion there are far too many immigrants that already occupy all areas of our industrial and mercantile business. What this does is limit the amount of hometown jobs for hometown people. One classic example is it is cheaper to pay an immigrant less per hour to pick produce than it is to pay a hometown individual that is associated with a union. I am not saying pay is a huge factor it is only one facet of the whole diamond. There are jobs such as picking produce that no hometown native would want to do because it is too dirty for them to perform so these jobs become appealing for the searching immigrant.
