Robert Schindler, Terri Schiavo’s father, said, “You can see it's [removing the feeding tube] taking its toll where her face is getting shallow, but she still was responsive. And talking, but with no volume, like it's very, very low” (Hannity & Colmes, 2005). Her parents also disagreed with Michael Schiavo about whether their daughter would want her feeding tube removed. Terri’s mother, Mary Schindler, stated that she believed if Terri Schiavo had ever told Michael Schiavo she did not wish to be kept alive by artificial means, “I don't think she was ever talking about [removing] a feeding tube. My daughter would not want to be starved to death.
The book follows the story of a young girl named Tita who longs her entire life to marry her lover, Pedro, but can never have him because of her mother's upholding of the family tradition of the youngest daughter not marrying but taking care of her mother until the day she dies. Tita is only able to express herself when she cooks. I enjoyed this book because it taught me a lot about how one’s traditions can affect your life.

She had been receiving letters from her ex-husband saying "How are you and the boys? Bet they’re getting big," (1, Medicine River). The clear absence of the father has caused Rose to become independent and have to raise her children by herself, as well as support her kids with no financial aid from a husband, an uncommon front for a woman in a time where men dominated. In addition to the independence and self-reliance of Bertha and Rose, Louise, a female who lives in Medicine River with Will, possesses these same characteristics. She has found a way to succeed at a job in a time when it occurs very seldomly for women.
As she suffers from finding a stable income and house for her family, Moody’s mother Toosweet encourages Moody to do well in school. However, her push to ensure Moody to succeed in school is only to prove to her husband Raymond’s family that her daughter is as smart as his family, not encourage Moody to attend college and fight for her rights. As a child, Moody was unaware of the oppression and inequality that African Americans had suffered. As she constantly questioned her concerns to her mother about the incidents that occurred, her mother always told her, “Just do your work like you don’t know anything” (Moody, 123). She realizes that her mother ignores the racial acts against her community and becomes alienated within her family as well as her community when she fights for her rights.
She grew up with her aunt – Mrs. Reed, along with her 3 cousins – John, Eliza, and Georgina. Jane never was shown any affection by any of the Reed family members; they all hated her. Eventually Jane expressed her need for love to Mrs. Reed, “You think that I have no feelings, and that I can do without one bit of kindness; but I cannot live so: and you have no pity” (Bronte 41). Jane was forced to be independent since she was a child. Her strength only grew as she was locked in the Red Room by her aunt.
It was probably too painful of a memory. Charles J. Shields writes: Nelle (Harper) regarded her unhappy mother with sympathetic but confused feelings. When it came time to write To Kill a Mockingbird, Nelle wiped the slate clean of the conflict between herself and her mother. Since she could not be her mother’s daughter, so to speak, in the novel, the fictional Finch family has no mother. Or, rather, it did have, but “Our mother died when I was two,” says Scout, “so I never felt her Absence”.
