The story that stand out to me is Geraldo No Last Name because you never know who is going to change your life. The person that you met can be a big influence. The theme that is important is that one person can change your life in so many ways that you don't even realize it and being kind and loving person. The writing is at its best is when Cisneros say “Only Marin can’t explain why it mattered, the hours and hours, for somebody she didn't even know” (Cisneros, 66). When she talks about hours and hours for somebody she didn't even know is a life changing or can be a life changing moment.
My best friend Taylor Clark is an influence in my life, because she is one of the sweetest girls I have ever met. She influenced me to go to church with her and her family and listen to what the pastor had to say. She taught me to believe that you can have friends that do bad things, but believe in God and trust him that he did that for a reason. Just because you have bad friends does not mean nor make you a bad person. Knowing Taylor made me see the world a whole lot different, she has open up my eyes and made me see pass the bad and in the good. She made me a better person and made me become the true me that I was suppose to be. I am forever thankful to have her as a best friend, but mostly like a sister. Now I have two sisters that I care about and love and know that they will forever be in my life.
