Because I know more about my step dad’s family’s origins, I will mention them as well. The last name Fleischmann originates from Germany. But my step grandma lived in Holland for most of her life. She grew up there during World War II and when the Nazi’s invaded the Netherlands. She eventually came over to the states, got married and had four children.
Then, on January 9, 1913, Richard Milhous Nixon was born in that very house. Hannah and Frank would have three more children: Donald (born in 1914), Arthur (born in 1918), and Edward (born in 1930). The Nixon family lived on the edge of poverty. The lemon ranch didn't make enough money to provide for the family of seven, so Frank started doing odd jobs (namely building houses) AND ran the lemon ranch to provide for his family. In 1922, the Nixon's moved back to Whittier, and things took a turn for the better.
I really didn’t.” (p. 180) Any person that has a good relationship with their parents would certainly try go to them for help especially if they were in a difficult time in their life. Holden was undergoing a very difficult time in his life; he was lonely and desperate for someone to talk to. Instead of seeking his parents, he chose to avoid them. This portrays the lack of the primary support system in Holden’s life, his parents. Religion can be a strong support system providing guidance, comfort, and answers during difficult times.

I was raised to work hard and to never let anyone tell me that I was not just as good as they were. My childhood I guess was something like the calm before the storm, because at the age of thirteen my mother died and my father went into a deep depression. Things became worse as time went on my father slowly drank himself to death in four years and I was left to take care of my younger sister and three brothers. We tried to make a living in our community but the money was just not there and we were forced to make a decision, stay here and live in the gutter or raise the money for what seemed to be our only hope, leaving Italy for the fairy tale work of America. I decided that it would be in our best interests to move there so for the next two months we did all that was needed to raise the money that would hopefully save our lives.
Prayer and Morality by Eugene Carson Blake’s touches on many subjects in such a short article. Much of society does not live by the same moral code as they did a long time ago. Some people believe that they do not need organized religion like they used to. Although, the Ten Commandments say we should rest on the seventh day, many of us are not able to do that because of the society we live in. This is one reason that organized religion is so important, people need to remember that God has his own plans for us and prayer is very important.

At the age of 12 Dickens was removed from school to work at a boot-blacking factory to help support the family. He later wrote that he wondered 'how I could have been so easily cast away at such an age'. These feelings of poverty and abandonment show through the novel of Great Expectations. Pip was poor and had a desire to be a gentleman, just as Charles Dickens would have. Pip's first meeting with Estella is when he comes to Miss.
* * * As a yet unmarried youngest son, Giuseppe Zambarano lives in the home of his father Gioacchino and his uncle Lorenzo, a modest wooden affair in the heart of this growing neighborhood. The Zambarano brothers of the older generation disembarked in 1882 to join the so-called "pick and shovel brigade" of new immigrants, who tilled the land in Thornton and Simmonsville, as they had in Italy. Now many of the early arrivals have become disenchanted with the hard conditions and meager returns of family farming that drove them from the Italian countryside in the first place.
