Troy also, let his past influence the relationship he had with his younger son Cory. Because of problems that he ran into when he was trying to become a professional athlete, he assumed that Cory would not be successful either. Troy never showed nor pretended that he had faith in Cory becoming pro. Instead Troy only told his son what he would not be able to do. Troy also let his current mistakes influence his marriage.
Despite Troy?s continuous attempts to push himself away from anything he had ever known about his father, the inheritance of such irrational behavior was inevitable because it was all he had ever known.

Biff was very popular and athletic in high school. Even though Biff was a star football player, you need more than pure athleticism to get you places in life.
Due to the claim that many people had on the atomic bomb by the dual mission to first to compel surrender of the Japanese and second to demonstrate Stalin that Uranium and Plutonium bombs could work in combat condition. I personally think that to first compel surrender of the Japanese should be to only protect ourselves. The United States is justified that I am guessing close to about a million allied lives would have been saved by using the atomic bombs to end the war. Obviously it wouldn 't all just happen over night or within a few days. Roughly for about a year or heavy fighting with many loses it would be to take down the main land.

Troy do not want his son Cory’s life to be like him, but yet he raised him to be an independent man like his was. Troy denys Cory’s chance to a football tryout because he believes that his son will experience his disappointment in the industry. Troy said to Rose, “I don’t want him to be like me!” (1046).

Neither son has the support of their father for pursuing a dream job they each desire to obtain. Cory, the son is “Fences”, has a passion for the game of football and he finds himself excelling in it, but his father, Troy, will not allow his son to pursue an opportunity that arises to reach his goal. Cory wants to continue his football career while simultaneously receiving a higher education. He wants to be successful in the work force by having specific skills gained in college, and he understands football is the only “way [he’ll] be going to college” (Act 1, Scene 3, Line 74). An article written by Nicole Smith is extremely accurate describing the relationship Cory has with his father and the effect that has on Cory when stating, “Troy is constantly trying to shape Cory into the person he wants Cory to be, rather than permit Cory to explore possibilities and make his own decisions.” Smith continues describing Cory as beginning “an optimistic, hopeful young man full of hope and opportunity, he becomes disillusioned, just as his father was”.
