A Raisin in the Sun

In the film A Raisin in the Sun you get to see the lives of African Americans and how they struggle financially. This film made me think of today and how we have so many people struggling financially because of COVID, a lot of families have had to make a lot of sacrifices in order to be able to get the necessities for their families. I truly loved the character of Ruth in the beginning since she was someone who was trying to stay honest and truthful when she told Walter that the money he was trying to use wasn’t his and it was his mother’s instead and that he had to go to work. A person who’s honest always has the most success. Unlike Walter, the character named Travis is a character that we see in the film that is determined to give his best in order to use for his school needs by working in a grocery store. I personally have seen a lot of people try to get money the easy way but eventually they realize that it’s important to work for what you want because money comes with working hard.

      Hi ,
      I think your post was very well written. I agree that making money quick or the get rich quick gimmicks never quite work out. Most people will find that something really meaningful and worthwhile requires diligence and a lot of hard work put into it. Hard work pays off, and the quick gimmicks are usually foolish as Walter seemed to be.
