Roots Run Deep

- A home is more than a place, it’s somewhere where you can center your affections and find your identity. Moving to a place from somewhere you consider home can be difficult because of the delay comfort you feel when your old identity gets tested in new surroundings. By conveying emotion with body language, having logic behind her statements, and establishing credibility, Elizabeth Alexander effectively explains her southern identity and how one identifies with a place. I can relate to Alexander in the sense of having to live somewhere long enough to be at ease enough to consider that place your home....   [tags: Culture]
