The book Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick is a mysterious book that takes turns that you would never expect. The theme for this book is that sometimes you have to being willing to make a sacrifice for the people you love. Becca Fitzpatrick shows us this theme throughout the whole story including when Patch decides not kill Nora, when Nora fought to stay alive, and when Nora sacrificed herself for Patch. It shows many times within in the book that sacrifice doesn't go without being recognized or making a change. Sacrifice isn't easy but Nora and Patch do it for each other, and they're forbidden love. Hush, Hush is a book that shows sacrifice and what happens afterwards, the message portrayed is obvious and important. Becca proves a very good trait in her book that captures the reader.
Even though some sacrafices are not neccesary, they hardest ones are made for those who you love. Sacrifice plays a major role as one of the main themes in the Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan. Sacrifices were made for the mothers and daughters which were fueled by love and honor, such as when An-Mei sacrificed her own flesh and blood for her dying mother, Suyuan giving up her children so they could live a happy life, and An-Mei risking her life and sacrificing a sapphire ring from her mother. These were all made for the sake of somebody else's good and for love of somebody else.
George knew that Lennie would be lynched, probably beaten and then killed if he was caught. Lennie, being more like an animal than a human being, was incapable of understanding his own strength and understanding the subtleties of life. George grasps the fact that he can't protect Lennie from society, as he also can't protect society from Lennie. George felt as though he had no other choice but to save Lennie from a cruel kind of death at the hands of Curley and his followers. It is a supposedly quick end. He even goes as far as to protect Lennie from seeing it coming. It appears to be an act of love. However, if they did escape, George knew it would be just a matter of time before Lennie had another "accident". As to whether it is justifiable
Growing up my family had little to no money. My parents, immigrants from El Salvador, worked two jobs each. Home was a small space with a conjoined kitchen and living room. When Mom and Dad first arrived to America, they never imagined a child of theirs would become a university student. Coming to America itself was in their wildest dreams. To them, an education of that level was unattainable. Now, I represent my family wherever I go. I am at TWU for my family and for my dreams. One day, I will be the Nurse Practitioner I always envisioned. But more importantly, I will give my parents and my grandmother everything they never had. Now that I am older I comprehend the magnitude of their sacrifices. When I hear the name Texas Woman’s University,
After reading the novel, Of Mice & Men by John Steinbeck, I felt relieved and shocked. The novel ends with George shooting Lennie in the head because he killed the bosses sons wife. Lennie was born with a mental disability causing him to look up upon George. When Lennie killed Curry’s wife, a whole lynch mob was on the look out for him. George saw no other choice but to take Lennie out of his misery. I felt relieved because it wasn't the first time Lennie had caused a scene, previously they had to leave town because of an incident Lennie had caused. George already knew Lennie could not control himself and some point he couldn't try to control Lennie forever. In the last chapter is states “George still stared at Curley’s wife. “Lennie never done it in meanness,” he said. “All the time he done bad things, but he never done one of ‘em mean.” He straightened up and looked back at Candy. .. He said sharply, “I ain’t gonna let ‘em hurt Lennie.” George loves Lennie unconditionally, this makes him choose to kill Lennie

It’s been a wonderful journey to be able to be part of a team, from my wonderings around whether it will work or not, and despite of them having the intuitive feeling that Jessica and Gabriel where the ones, that I wanted to live, work and grow up with into this new opportunity (Grace comes later as the cherry top!) to working hard on refurnishing and bringing new energies into the house and figuring out responsibilities and rhythms.
Without the support of my father and the drastic change in my life, I understood that the only way to improve my quality of life was to study and find the passion to which I was going to dedicate the rest of my life. After careful thought, I decided to move to the United States. Leaving my family, I came to this country in search of knowledge, contacts and “greater opportunities”. During these years, I have been confronted with many obstacles, but I have been able to resolve them thanks in part to my dedication. When it comes to achieving my goals, I find it in myself to push myself until that goal it met. I consider that there is no lack of opportunities for someone that believes in their capabilities and is aware that nothing comes without sacrifice, meaning that hard work and dedication are required in order to achieve goals.
Twenty-four years ago, my dad boarded a one-way flight to the U.S. He was coming to a new country filled with vocational opportunities his homeland could not provide. He was not limited by his place of birth or the reality that no one else in his family had ever left their village. He trusted his gut and took a leap of faith. A year later he called for my mother and I to join him in the U.S. and we left our life in Kenya and my future was ultimately changed. Throughout my life, I have been keenly aware that had my father limited himself to only opportunities that he could see, I would have never even been able to consider opportunities such as the UNC Medical Center Administrative Fellowship.
While still going through this endeavor a thought/ idea comes on how I 'll get over this situation is to think about my goal in life and the amount of money and how comfortably I will be living once I complete the task I must accomplish by figuring it out what must I do and how to do it effectively no matter what the costs are. I think about one certain thing that fuels my hope is how comfortably my father lives has two new luxury performance cars, a house that is paid off and is not in
Growing up as well as presently I had many constantly changing passions and hobbies whether it had been dance, basketball, reading, or even gymnastics. Throughout these passions there had been times where they no longer interested me and I had grown out of them. However, most of the time I felt discouraged with these hobbies as I felt I was not good enough for them. Through all the times that I had felt like that, the hands that would always pick me up and tell me to try my hardest and keep pushing me was my family. It took me awhile to realize my truest passion was not something I had earned or learned in all the years in my life, but simply the caring and loving family that I was born into. There constant upliftment and support in both my
