    The Echo of Women The Mexican Revolution is something that changed Mexico for the better and that had so many parts that made it happen. For instance, a key component to the victory was the role that women played. Not only because they cooked, cleaned and took care of their children, but they also fought for their rights as well. As for the De La Garza family, they fought for themselves without a father or a male role model by their side. They only took care of their husbands, which reflects the echo of the woman from the revolution because they had to take care of the men while the youngest daughter of the De La Garza family had to take care of her mother, which shows that they were treated poorly. First of all, I will be mentioning facts about the family household, how it was maintained and who was in charge of what they had to do at the house to keep it the way they did. As like the woman of the revolution that had their tasks to keep everything in order. One of the tasks that were taking place was that every daughter had a task to do on the ranch and they didn’t do it with a male figure in their lives until later on, so Mama Elena took charge. Esquivel states “Are you starting up with your rebellious again? It’s enough that you have the audacity to break the rules in your sewing (12).” All of them had to obey their mother and do as they were told or else they had to face the consequences of their actions. As for the woman in the Mexican Revolution they had to maintain…

    Martin Luther King said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” He was the rightful leader of this cause, and that made this movement much more successful than it would have been without him. But, was this the case on Animal Farm? After the rebellion, the pigs rose discreetly into power. The pigs were not the right leaders for Animal Farm, although it was…

    This quote from Eric Weiner’s travel narrative, The Geography of Bliss, epitomizes an American perspective on thinking. Before his travels pursuing happiness, Weiner never had to consider what thinking did, or does, emotionally. Like many Americans, I find my perspective to be limited in that we Americans do not naturally consider how our thinking is affecting our own happiness. In his book, Weiner finds that other countries have views very contradictory to ours at home. Weiner even points out…
