Cherokee matrilineal kinship system. A child is related to his mother, & through her to his brothers & sisters. He is also related to his mother’s brothers, sisters & mother. A child is NOT related to his FATHER. The important male relative in a child’s life is his mother’s brother. White men who married Cherokee women were shocked to find that they weren't considered to be related to their own children, & that mothers had control over the children not them. She was head of the family. by estela

A cesarean is not a failure on a mother’s part. A cesarean, no matter what we think of them in the natural birth community, is still birth. It is still child being born and a woman becoming a mother. It is still important and it can still be a beautiful moment. by natalia

Seven year old Eva Hart immigrating to Canada with her parents as 2nd class passengers on the Titanic. Eva and her mother survived (Lifeboat 14), but her father did not. Eva Hart never forgot what she had seen and heard that night. She is famous for the line: "If a ship is torpedoed, that's war. If it strikes a rock in a storm, that's nature. But just to die because there weren't enough lifeboats, that's ridiculous." by stormbou_3

While the younger boy is still dressed with the informality of a child at play (ex. the open shirt collar) and holds a tennis racquet, his older brother is wearing a smaller version of a military officer's uniform and the drawing by nanette

The importing of human beings into the US from Africa to be sold as slaves was outlawed in 1808, after which the slave markets of the southern states traded in black people born in America. The rules of New World slavery decreed that a person’s status was derived from that of the mother, not the father. A slave owner’s children by an enslaved woman were, firstly, assets. by charlotte

Christine is actually a pretty smart cookie. She recognizes quickly that her Angel and the Phantom were one and the same and that he was using her to display his music ("I am the mask you wear..."). She also figures out quickly that he's just a man, and she doesn't call him "Angel" again until "Wandering Child". She also realizes at the end that the Phantom's problem is ultimately moral, not physical. by rebecca2
