It just wasn't the same. Rose Quartz had been gone for years now. Everyone was just now adjusting to her absence. It was still quiet at the place the Crystal Gems called home. It was somewhat unsettling but she had grown used to it. They didn't talk much with her
| Rose is describing her frustration and also, describes her jealousy towards Caroline’s life; that she escaped from living on a farm and had the ability to choose her life.
In the last chapter of the book, the family finds shelter from a storm in an old barn, where they find an old man dying of starvation and his young son beside him.

Mrs. Rose, an 85-year-old Dominican woman, grew up in an urban town in South Carolina. She is the youngest of two sisters and one brother. Rose stated her life growing up was stressful after her parents separated. Also, she said her mother had to work two jobs so that she could provide for their family. Due to the fact of limited income with many mouths to feed, Rose's older siblings moved to their grandparent's house. She further stated once her siblings moved, there was not a relationship between the siblings, and her mother became abusive. Consequently, the stress of having to work two jobs coupled with Rose's mother experiencing abuse as a child kept the cycle of violence to continue. Rose stated her mother homeschooled her brother for the reason that the bruises left would have quickly alerted the department of family and children services. Moreover, Rose indicated her mother dropped out of middle school, and the education that her mother taught was not beneficial. As Rose developed, she noted discrimination started happening. Although she tried to disregard the racism, she stated the environment affected her ability to love.
For example, when Troy denied Corey permission to play football. Although Rose said, “Why don’t you let the boy go ahead and play football Troy” (1166)? She did not promote rebellion or disobedience. Also, when Troy decided to discipline Corey for lying to him about his job Rose respected his decision even though Troy could have handled the situation in a more productive way.I’m gonna do her just like your daddy did you. I’m gonna give her the best of what’s in me”(1180). She respected King as the head of the household even at his death without devaluing her own authority.She did so to keep structural respect in her home. Imagine if she had encouraged Corey to get the signature forged or to go without his father’s approval; the outcome and structure of respecting both parents would have been completely eliminated. Because Rose maintained her level of respect for Troy she was able to teach Corey that respect for the family structure has to be
It was later in the day, near time for all to pack up and go home, when shouts rang through the mill. A blur of green, a cloud of red barreling through the mill. "Stop!" The men shouted, trying to catch the panicked, running girl. Her face was ashen, mottled with red and wet with sweat and tears. Eyes hardly seeing. A splash of wet red across her green dress. "She's hurt, catch her!" Hands reached out but the shrill scream when they near caught her made the men
Rose is a born ShadowHunter from Paris. She is the daughter of Abel and Mary Havenstone. Her father, Abel, died before Rose was born and her mother later remarried a man named Kurt Ridgeway, he was an admired ShadowHunter. Rose was five years of age when her mother married Kurt and he began to train Rose to be the best ShadowHunter that she could possibly be. With strict training Rose never spent much time with any other children, instead she spent her time training and studying runes, downworlder history, and anything any ShadowHunter should study. When she was nine years old her stepfather went out to kill a rogue vampire, he never came back. The rogue vampire wasn't alone, it was an ambush. This started Rose's hate for Downworlders. A few
She would never fully understand Rose's motive in all this. Why this all had to be. However, the pain of it all, it was real. She couldn't understand it either. There was so much yet so little she knew. But when Rose's arms found her way around her she felt that warmth again. It melted her from the inside and she couldn't help but lean into the Gem for comfort.
How much would you attribute to her particular strengths and attitudes, help from others, and luck? I think that the main reason that Rose got out of the fire safely is from luck. Not only was it her luck it was also her attitude. Rose was courageous and headstrong, but she
First of all, the way Rose sees Troy, her husband, changes with Raynell’s coming. When Troy tells Rose about Raynell which is the result of his affair with Alberta, Rose stops seeing him as her husband and refuses to hear him out about his illegitimate daughter’s situation. She sees Troy’s affair as a betray and feels like he made her waste eighteen years of her life. However, after reflection, she decides to help Troy and agrees to raise Raynell as her own with unconditional love and with the following words: “From right now…this child got a mother. But you a womanless man” (2.3.79). Additionally, Rose accepts Raynell as if it was her own daughter but by doing so she denies Troy as her husband because once he revealed his secret, his liaison
I completey agree. In the beginning, Rose is basically the damsel in distress. Since she has Patrick by her side and is living a comfortable life as a middle-class wife, she doen't need to leave the comfort of her role as damsel in distress. As Rose's story continues, we
What an interesting story Karen. There is always something new to learn about cultural influence. I didn’t know there are cultures that moms are not supposed to do any cares for their babies. As a mother of 3 little girls that sounds very hard to understand for me. But, in any case our mission as nurses continues to be clear, advocate for the wellbeing of our patients and their families. Especially in these type of situations where babies and children are involved. Family support could has been the key here but, as you mentioned, that was missing. How frustrating when we as nurses, realized that things are out of our hands and we can only do so much.
Some people may say that having control over someone or something can bring satisfaction and a sense of power. In the an article called “Gunman Kills Himself After Hostage Drama (584)” written by Charles P. Wallace and Tim Waters loss of control and the feeling of being helplessness makes
The Little Matchstick Girl is a short story written by a danish author named Han Christian Andersen about a small childs death. In this story the child is sent by her father on an extremly cold and snowy night to sell matchsticks. Throughout the story she ends not being able
It continued and stretched for what felt like hours, but I 've always been bad at judging time. They 're prices were stinging my heart and brain, as if they were acid. I tried to distance myself away from the words, tried to act like they were betting on a magnificent painting or maybe a stuffed, giant white tiger with stitched on antlers from the Black Deer that roamed the forests here. But I was neither of those things. I was a girl, who was in a place, a world, that she didn 't know, being betted on by men she wouldn 't like to know. I was a girl, just a girl, who got sold by her manic mom -who was going with the new conformity- to this horrid host. I was a girl who was supposed to be dreaming about the cute brothers that lived across the street. I was supposed to be going to my first year of middle school. But no. I was here. Waiting for the willingest better to buy me. What a sad world.
