Out of fear and eventually anger Victor Frankenstein neglects the life he brought into the world. Neglecting that which one brings into the world is a violation of the natural order. In order for a healthy relationship to be formed between offspring and a creator, the offspring must have some sense that they were created out of love and will continue to be loved. This is the foundation for not only motherhood, but also numerous religious ideologies such as Christianity. Without the love and nurturing care from a mother physical and emotional health problems often arise for offspring during childhood and down the road during the rest of their lives.
Frankenstein’s complete abandonment of his monster lead to the Monsters homicidal behaviors, and disordered life. The Monster craved love from his creator but never received any. Out of great anger the Monster, whether directly or indirectly, stripped Frankenstein of practically everyone that he loved. He killed Victor’s younger brother William, and then framed Justine a highly regarded family servant, who was eventually tried and killed for William’s death. The Monster also takes the life of Henry Clerval, one of Frankenstein’s best friends with whom he was attending the University of Ingolstadt .The Monster also killed Victor’s partner Elizabeth, not just on any ordinary night, but on their wedding night. Shocked by this tragedy Victor’s father also dies, removing what little was left of Victors family.

...er The Monsters epigenetic mechanisms were altered or not abandonment clearly drove The Monster down a troubled path that lead to homicide.
After reflecting on these terrible atrocities I think I should take the time to call my mother. I have a lot of thanking to do. I want to thank her for holding me close and not altering my delicate epigenetic mechanisms. I should thank her for so kindly and considerately allowing me to express the developmental gene that allows me to feel and express empathy. I suppose writing and thinking about this paper brought new meaning to one of my mother’s favorite incessant childhood reminders. I now truly realize the power with which she said “ I brought you into this would can could easily take you out”. This made me appreciate and further understand the importance and power of motherhood from an entirely different vantage point.

- Mother Teresa’s Unconditional Love The book, One Heart Full of Love, is a combination of speeches and interviews featuring Mother Teresa given during the 1970’s and early 1980’s. It’s very obvious to me that Mother Teresa was a very simple woman. Each of the chapters in the book covers virtually the same information. The stories discussed in her speeches were all very similar. She seemed to use the same stories but add a little different twist depending on the crowd she was addressing. I really don’t know if the “twist” was to keep the stories fresh in her mind or to appease a given congregation.... [tags: Mother Tesera Biography Charity]
