Storyboard Description

The reason I picked this story was because I felt a connection with the theme . One of the themes in the story is that some people will do whatever it takes to keep the past they're present . Some people become bitter because they can't let go of the past . Emily was still distraught over the loss of her father so when she thought she was going to lose Homer she killed him . That's why she laid with him in the bed every night to reminisce and make it seem like he was still alive . I have done this with my parents where I couldn't let go of the past . I used to cause arguments between my step parents and parents so that my parents could be together . I was desperate because I wanted to keep living in the past and didn't want to accept change . I got over it and didn't kill anyone unlike Emily.
