We are a family
>“We are a family on a journey to a place called wonderful.” That’s exactly what the motto of the Malone family is. The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis is about a family written during The Great Depression. Deza, the main character, goes out on an adventure to find her father in the midst of The Great Depression full of hardships and challenges. Deza’s mother, Peg, is a big part of helping Deza find her father as well. Deza’s father, Roscoe, leaves his family in Gary, Indiana and moves to Flint, Michigan in order to find a job. One lesson the book suggests is to never lose hope.
Growing up in a pentecostal household
Growing up in a pentecostal household, I was no stranger to the concept of death. My family and I went to church three times a week, where I was reminded that every action or decision I made will be accounted for when God decides to welcome me into heaven or not. I allowed my upbringing and schema to inadequately judge those who could not conceptualize death or the afterlife. But with age, I have learned that everyone did not have the religious background to hold their hand through the dreading topic of death. How do you explain to children where their loved ones are after they have died?.
