Ruth and James both possess value’s that are family and education. A strong family value is very important to Ruth because her father was not the nicest person growing up but she was still able to keep a strong family value. I also believe that education was a big value as well for Ruth and James. James was able to leave his family to still pursue his high school career and college as well after dropping out.
I can relate to having a strong family value as my mom passed away when I was 8 years old so I had to grow up pretty fast and become family orientated and take care of my whole family as best as I could. It is also very important to value your family as you never know when it might be the end. I also value my education as well by taking 7 years off, I am finally back in college.
