    She had a son who was 12 and going for medical evaluation, like my kids. I did not know this woman, but she knew a great deal about Chiari. She was one of the first people to have the surgery and she was highly involved with the Chiari groups. Micah walked by us. She commented, “Your son has a tethered cord.” I questioned her and she explained to me that Micah’s toe walking was a sign of a tethered spinal cord. I did not even know what a tethered cord was, but her comment made me feel…

    The idea of the American Dream is treated in a similar way in The Great Gatsby. Nick perceives Gatsby as “so peculiarly American” and can be considered for much of the novel as the embodiment someone seeking the American dream. (Fitzgerald 64). However, when Gatsby is killed, and “nobody came” to the funeral, the reader comes to the conclusion that the American Dream is an impossible one (176). Part of the allure of both of these characters is their personal aesthetic. However, while Dean…

    “Desires push people to give up something that they’ve had for something that they want.” In The Great Gatsby, many things are hinted at and there are many themes and interpretations that can be made from the story. In my case, I based my findings off of desire. One of my main reasons for this is because of the amount of love that flies around in the story. It’s pandemonium in a sense. Even from the beginning, we learn early in the story that Daisy and Jay are in love. But when Jay left for war…
