  • As a dead person, I have to acknowledge that Julia Alvarez wrote a good story about her experience.
  • In the story of Julia Alvarez, A Genetic of Justice, she explains how Trujillo controlled many's view of the dictator including her own mom.
  • In paragraph 3, Alvarez writes about how her mother didn't know anything about the dictator, since no one told her about the horrid action of the dictator.
  • "So, as a young girl, my mother must have thought of El Jefe as a king of movie star. She must wanted to meet the great man." (Par. 3)
  • "Sometimes in her daydreams, her great love wore the handsome dictator's face. Never having seen him, my mother could not know the portrait was heavily retouched." (Par. 4)
  • Not only that, Trujillo also had posters of himself that showed a young military man with great pride and power.
  • Imagine walking through these streets during the scorching heat of summer for at for a time, it's not fun. Trujillo made women to parade to show "respect" to the himself. "To my father and other men in the country, the most humiliating of these tributes... women were made to march and turn their heads and acknowledge the great man as they passed the review stand." (Par. 10)
