My Family As a child, I grew up outside of Berlin, Germany. I lived on a small farm with my father, mother, two older brothers, and younger sister. My family was very close, and we spent most of our time together. We were happy, lived a simple life, and kept to ourselves. Nevertheless, when I was thirteen,
My family has lived here in Oregon since the before the war between the states, and family tells us stories of the good times before all these japs started taking over. Around the turn of the century or so it started to seem like these people were everywhere. It all started with the building of the railroad. The companies brought in those people to build the railroad, and now that the railroad is completed they will not leave. To make matters even worse there is an effort by their leaders to get them to strike for the same pay as us white people that work for the railroad. There has been extremely little or no effort on their part to become like us Americans. I was walking through town the other day and what did I see, there was a huge Buddha statue in front of a new Buddhist temple. They can't even go to church like regular people.
Family of origin work begins by having an individual or couple drawing up a "Genogram," a three generational map of family relationships graphically depicting such things as births, deaths, marriages, divorces, and sibling order. The rationale for working directly with patients in this manner is described by prominent family therapist John Framo. "The client, by having sessions with his or her family of origin, takes the problem to where they began, thereby making available a direct route to etiological factions. Dealing with the real external parental figures is designed to loosen the grip of the internal representatives of these figures and expose them to reality considerations and their live derivatives. Having gone backward in time, the
When it was 1944 I was 15 years old. When I was 15 years old, the Nazi soldiers rounded up all the jews including me and my family and then took us to a ghetto. Some of my friends were taken too. When we arrived, I noticed the ghetto had very tall walls that had broken glass on the top. After everyone was inside, the gates were closed which meant we couldn’t go out. Then we were taken to a little room that already had a family in it. It looked like they barely came too. The first few days they would give us a little bit of food and the conditions were not as bad. A few days later
What has to do with cold cheeks, warm blankets ,and a pot of hot chocolate? One thing I love to do is go to wisconsin with my family. Every year my mom, my dad, and I go to wisconsin the week before christmas. That weekend we have a family Christmas on my dad’s side of the family. It usually is a 3 hr drive for us to get there because we are the farthest away from wisconsin.(complex sentence) My dad’s side of the family all lives in chicago, so it only takes them an hour and maybe a half.(compound sentence)
I don’t really know much about my identity through my heritage. However, my ‘identity’ has been found through my family’s and I’s moral beliefs and teachings. I couldn’t tell you much about before I was born, but I can say right now, I belong to people who accept me for me. Everything I am. Where I come from and who I’m going to be is because of the people I’ve chosen to immerse myself around. A quote by a man named Francis Conroy says it best, “As you age naturally, your family shows more and more on your face.” I hope this is true for me when I’m older. The values and traditions that I’ve always been around is something I am extremely proud of. The quote later goes on to say, “If you deny that, you deny your heritage.” No matter how many times I leave the family nest or allow myself to figure
My mother’s time in the Air Force opened me up to many experiences that one would not typically be able to experience. Due to her being in the Air Force, I am now able to say that I have had the opportunity to live outside the United States, more specifically : Germany. The main reactions I tend to get when I inform others of this consist primarily of shock, interest and curiosity. This sharing of information normally results in plenty of questions, one of them being why I lived there in the first place. This would then lead to me having to go into full detail about what my mother had done for a living at the time and how I had lived in multiple states before finally flying out of the country to Bitburg, Germany at the young age of 5 years old.
As I approached my mother she was heart broken she kept saying that it’s going to be alright my father was hurt holding all of us my whole family was in shock because out of all the people my brother hung around and all the people in his circle who would’ve thought he would be the one to die. My father felt like all of the sins he committed karma didn’t hit him it hit his son you see my brother passed away on father’s day and that made my whole family different it made me and my little brother get closer we would always fight. The media and the school showed up like 3 days in a row to speak with us I did not want to speak because of the circumstances the way I seen it was that nobody cared about us and they didn’t feel our pain at all, during the time I felt like I had nobody I stayed in the house for about two months I didn’t eat or anything for a
It’s currently 1933 and I am a Jew who lives in Germany, allow me to introduce myself my name is Anna I’m 13 and it is not easy being who I am. The nazi regime has taken place, it’s a horrible time to be alive. Munich (wild camps) have already began and there’s been a boycott of our shops and businesses. Schools is already bad I don’t know why they are hurting us.
Growing up in suburban Cincinnati, Ohio, I’ve spent most of my life surrounded by sameness. Everyone had the same skin color, the same religion, the same financial situations, the same interests, eventually people even started to look the same. While on the surface I seamlessly blended in with the others, there was something that separated me more than most would think. I was born into a Jewish family, and my mother instilled in my sister and I from a young age to be active in our religion. We went to sunday school for ten years and now are both assistants in the classes, we joined Jewish youth groups, we both had our Bat Mitzvahs and our Confirmation services, and I teach Hebrew to students weekly. Being a Jew has always been a constant in my life.
Hi Wilhelm Thank you for listening to me I felt more listened to today. I still feel I'm not listened to but maybe I'm just too "sick in the head" over everything.
I am a daughter of a of a mother named Mechtild of Merthein, and father, he was a knight named Hildebert of Bermersheina. I also had a brother named Hugo of Tholey. I was born on September 16, 1098 at Nohe Germany. I had a husband named Jermy McInerny . As a child, I was often too weak to walk and sometimes could not see. As an adult, I could be in bed paralyzed for days. At the age of 43, I said God told me to write down what I heard and saw , and for the first time revealed her visions to the world.I am remebered because I found 2 monasteries or buildings, went on 4 preaching tours. One of my famous quote is “I am the feather on the breath of God.
The last big thing that comes along with my German heritage is our character traits. My mother, brother, sister, and I all have blonde hair and blue eyes. However my father doesn’t have these character traits because my German heritage came from my mother’s side of the family. Germans are almost always on time. It is a common character trait that I have inherited. Germans are also normally a little bit taller. Although I am not too tall my mother is fairly tall and my sister is supposed to be quite tall when she gets
My family history starts with my mothers decision to emigrate from her native land of Honduras to the U.S. Her decision was highly influenced by that of her parents; her mother was a newlywed to a man who already lived in the USA. My mother moved to be closer to
History is defined as the study of the science of humanity in the past. It's a broad subject that spans over countless people groups throughout the years that the world has been around. Even before the times we have written word history was still being made, and it is still
