Response to Themes in Play


I want to write about immigration because its something that I will always have an opinion no matter what. In the play we see that parents will do anything they can to be able maintain their family. In the play we are able to see that parents don't have a limit, they would do anything to provide all they can for the ones they love. I believe that being in the position where you can not get a good paying job to be able to afford things hurts you a lot and it puts you in a really tough position. Ana tried to do everything she could to be able to have money to bring her kid from El Salvador but she couldn't at the end. Why? Because something happened to her son that was with them. He had an asthma attack and he died from it. Which sucked and she was in so much pain along with her husband. She thought that it was a really bad idea to bring her other son because I feel like what her son went through put her in that position. I feel like when people struggle with money it puts them in a really major tough position and it feel like their hands are tied. Its a like they don't know what the best choice is and if they don't decide someone else will and they are not going to like the results because of that. Immigration is something that nobody can really control and being an immigrant sucks. There is so much that someone is not allowed to do and that stops them from doing what they wished they could do. But they awesome thing is that when you are in that position it does not mean you give up. It means that you fight with everything you have, YOU are the one that has to want it more than anybody else! Its a fight that you are going to win, no matter what!

  1. This is a thoughtful and well-written response to the play. You address the specific issue of immigration, but also look at values connected to the play's depiction of immigration issues, such as the importance of family. This is a nicely complex essay. Mimi
