I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

I am reading the book "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," in my English class and I think it is an awesome book to create awareness with. It's about racism, it has child abuse in it, and also just how African Americans were treated. I hate racism and I grew up with it. I love people of all types and I don't like discrimating.

"I Stand Here Ironing" response

I just read "I Stand Here Ironing" by Tillie Olsen. I found this story very interesting. The relationship between the narrator and her daughter I found kind of confusing. Some parts of the story felt like the narrator didn’t want the child, especially after the father left. I think this story is great for all young mothers. I believe it will give them motivation.

I just read a short story, "I stand here ironing," by Tillie Olsen, and I really like it. This short story is very deep and the mother has loads of love for her daughter. It is very hard for a women to take care of 5 kids and has to work too. Then, day by day kids starts to feel unloved. In this story the mother talked about how her daughter was a beautiful baby.

I just read a short story, " I STAND HERE IRONING," by Tillie Olsen , I really like it because it shows how you raise your child, Emily alone. After her father left you and her when she was three months old. And you remember everything about her.

Will I marry a man or a woman?

Submitted by 12jimenezs on Thu, 2008-12-04 14:02

This question is important to me because I am bisexual. If I were to marry a man or a woman it would affect my life greatly. Being bisexual means liking both genders. Since I like both genders that means I might marry either one. If I were to marry a man that means that I can have the typical family. I can procreate and have children naturally.

I just read a short story, "I stand here ironing" by tillie olsen and i greatly admired it because its just so deep amd moving author describes the daughter so well. I mean to go through all that with a loved one and be strong enough to talk about is just laudable. I praised the mother for that.

I am Jonathan Smith i'm 17 years old and i go to EWSIS. Some of the things that i am into are philosophy,health,medicine,viruses etc. I guess you could say that i am more on the intellectual side. I  study the human anatomy A lot.  I listen to lots of music and all different types. Anything that euphoric to my ears makes it,s way into my Ipod. I  watch A lot of movies,mostly horror and drama. I am the type that likes one on one conversations as oppose to group discussions. Some of my beliefs or views are that we all are here for a purpose and when i say that, i am not talking about career-wise, i mean we all should learn to give to each other when we can and help each other because its not just about doing it because of the benefits but just more for the obligational aspect and the human connection. I feel as though I still have so much to do and i owe people something. I do not want to delve any deeper into this because it would start to get a bit surreal or nutty if you will so yeah thats one of my beliefs. I would say my favorite sport is football.
