Do you consider your memories to be treasure? Well, Lemon Brown did and I agree with him. Your memories are you treasure and only you can experience the full value of them. Nobody else can experience the same worth of you memories. So the person can’t really enjoy their “ treasure”. Your treasure is your memories so no one can experience your treasure the same way. Which will ultimately deteriorate the worth of your treasure. This evidence from the story proves my claim “ What else a man got ‘cepting what he can pass on to his son, or his daughter, if she be his oldest?” This evidence shows that memories don’t have the same worth to strangers as they do to you. Also, When memory’s happen you have to be there to enjoy it so that you can understand

The play examines the relationships between husbands and wives and reflects stereotypes of gender, particularly a marriage that ended in murder. The setting, a messy kitchen, reflects to me that the women stand together, emphasizing both the way they have been pushed together by their male-dominated society but also, possibly, their loyalty to each other over their husbands, a topic explored in the play. The men repeatedly dismiss things as beneath their notice if they are things such as the canning jars of fruit that are, in their opinions, women’s concerns. The men never recognize that they have forced the women to be concerned about these things, by not allowing them to be concerned about anything else. The men’s dismissal reflects a larger mindset of devaluing women and their opinions and interests in general.

This source is useful when trying to answer focusing question 1 because it can tell me how the resistance from the south to desegregate schools encouraged African Americans to create and participate in the Birmingham Campaign.
