So for this vocab post I am going to give you a vocab word, and a theme from the short story “A Worn Path” by Eudora Welty.
How this ties into my theme you say? The main character Phoenix Jackson, has resilience, i say this because even though she has challenges facing her (just like in the hero’s journey), she is like a rubber band and snaps back into her mission. She ultimately achieves her goal and gets her grandson his medicine.
Now here is a picture of my mother stretching a rubber band, showing resilience.
