At the moment of its waking Sacramento lost…its character…” (Didion 173). In other words, Didion is pointing out how Sacramento is becoming more immoral as urbanization and industrialization occur. However, what is most interesting is how Didion expresses Sacramento’s loss of character through her own experiences. For instance, Didion describes her wonderful memories basking in the Californian sun, rivers, fields and valleys as a child, showcasing the real natural Sacramento. However, later on as a n adult when she returns to Sacramento, Didion finds that the Sacramento she has been seeking is no longer there, as a result of industrial development:
Thomas A. Farley and Russell Sykes were able to capture the audience’s attention and keep them emotionally engaged throughout their whole argument. They accomplished this by using emotionally charged language, which helped make the audience relate and connect more with the text. Some charged language they used throughout their argument were terms such as “food desert”, “declining inner-ring suburbs”, “destitute rural areas”, and “pitiful three feet.” (Farley, Sykes) The term “food desert” makes the reader realize, and visualize what the small stores are missing and how they look barren, because there is almost no healthy food. The terms ‘declining” and “destitute” help describe how lacking both rural and suburb stores are, and how the problem

It is known that unlike the urban areas, residents of rural areas report a higher satisfaction. This is because of the place centric values that Miss Daisy was able to obtain. The close geographic proximity of family and friends made Miss Daisy’s life much easier. For example, her son lived really close from her home and would visit often to check up on her. Another example is that Hoke was able to drive through a storm to bring Miss Daisy some coffee and some company. Miss Daisy had a high involvement in local activities such as going to the Jewish service, playing Mahjong with friends or even going to hear Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. give a speech. These availabilities gave her a community satisfaction as well as personal life satisfaction.
I would have never thought that I would grow up to love the country life. I went from growing up in a big, busy, and hectic city, to a small, slow-paced, and simple town. I was so used to having neighbors, and walking and biking on a side-walk. Now I live on a gravel road with almost no neighbors. A change in environment really influences a person's personality. I now love the silence and hearing the birds chirp and coyete’s howl. The corn fields go on for miles and the sunsets are breathtaking.
