The words my mother and I had exchanged during common adolescent--parent confrontations were now my reality. I had no parent figure in my life, and I was on my own. I remember sitting in the living room as she packed her things. I only remember bits and pieces of our conversation. I am not even really sure

He knew what he saw there, and what he saw, he began to despise. The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation (111). In 1775, ordinary men had dared to take up arms of rebellion and strike a blow for independence
