"There's nothing thing you cant do if you set your mind to it."
This quote really stands out to me because you may be rich but education should never be titled as price. Education is all done by being determined to achieve and learn new things and to try your best.This quote has a strong message, rich or not you could be smart and achieve in dream jobs as long as you set your mind to it. This quote was referred to Chanda because she dreams to become a doctor when she's older but her brothers dont think she is capable enough to do so because of their wealth.
"May her parents rest in peace, but i hope she burned their sheets and buried their dishes."
In this quote they are discriminating people that have diseases ,cancer or AIDS. They are discriminating against the sick and how they aren't good enough to be living and should be seen as different. When a women would have Aids they would kick her out of the house for her to deal with her own problem, and would not be supported by their family any more. This quote was directed to ethers parents because they had died because of an disease so no one would pay respect because they believed they had a "sin."
Doctor Chilume went to Jong for medical training did he? Hah! he went to a pill convention hes no doctor hes a sales man . A liar trading on fears of diseases and deaths."
This quote is discriminating over the doctor because he helps patients with disease sp hes seen as a bad person because hes helping the people that should be "rotting" and shouldn't be loved and have a life.
Aids and health issues
the greatest killer has been (aids) ,acquired immune deficiency syndrome or human immunodeficiency virus, (HIV). Most Africans have been vulnerable to diseases due to poverty. African households also not afford the treatment so many just refuse to get tested. This information ties into the book I am reading the Chandas secrets because how Esther Chandas best friends parents died from aids, and the rest of the family was told to get tested but refused because they thinks its a sin not a disease. It also relates to the book because Jonah and Chandas mother died because of Aids they couldn't
afford treatment so they refused and died in the end do to Aids over taking the body.
