The Essay Of The Color Of Water
Rut’s family considers her “dead” to them once she separates all ties from them. For example, when Ruth returns to her sister or aunts, they refuse to see her. Do you think this act of severing family relations Is Justifiable? Why or why not? Have you Imaged that your family abandoned you? Well, I don’t think that you will have a good feeling on that. Definitely, You will feel very distressing.
However, In the kook the color of water, Rut’s family even considered her “dead” to them after her separated all ties from them. They even though Ruth was not the family member, Ruth must feel very sorrowful In her heart. It Is not humanity for a family to trend their children or their family member In that way. So, I think that this act of severing family relation Is not Justifiable. In chapter 21 a bird who flies, when Rut’s grandmother was dead, it made Rut’s mother very sad. She really wanted to make Ruth stayed, so she even asked Dee-Dee to make Ruth stay.

Her family can’t Just sever the relationship with her based on that because she has freedom to choose her own life.

In my personal opinion, sever the family relationship Is a very excessive way to deal the problem. In china, we always said that family Is the best place to return after you facing the fall. Because home Is the warmest existing for you and the family members will support you or encourage you, no matter what was happening on you. However, when Rut’s aunt stopped Ruth to volt her, family may be the most cold and detached place for Ruth. It’s very sad and that is the most important reason that
