This letter comes to you because, I don?t think you acted like a role model as your character in Native Son. You play a huge role in the book. I would like to do what you get to do such as going where ever you want anytime. Walking around disrespecting your parents isn?t going to help your relationship with them improve. You walk around with your best friends that are underage smoking and drinking which are setting bad examples. From your siblings, and your moms point of view I don?t think that behavior would be acceptable. Everyday you walk around with your drooping down trying to find some one to take your anger out on just because you made a bad decision. You should not take your parents and sister for granted.
If you ask me I would not disrespect my parents like you do. I?m glad my parents are here on this Earth. They take care of me and I?m not going to take it for granted. When I grow up I don?t want to be a smoker or a drinker. When I get mad I try not to take my anger out on someone else. I?m usually just mad at myself for the stupid decision I made.
