What individual(s) from your family has a direct impact on the turn of events in the play?

Character Diary: (Alternate assignment for Shakespeare Parody)
As a Montague or a Capulet consider the following questions. Be sure to pick a character so you can respond in 1st-person, just the way you would write in a personal diary! 
*5 pages, double spaced, size 12 font
Once you have selected what character you want to play, begin a Character Diary!
Within the diary, enter all the important events in the life of your character, from the play’s perspective.
How do the events shape YOUR life?
Will you take action to overcome the obstacles set before you and your family?
Will you endure hardship? Love? Loss?
Will you overcome?
Will you survive?
Consider the following as you write:
1.) How do the major events in the play affect you and your family (Capulet or Montaque) as a whole?
2.) What individual(s) from your family has a direct impact on the turn of events in the play?
3.) What individual was most affected? How? Why?
Remember this: Not all characters are aware of the peril their family, or particular members are in. How might this lack of knowledge shape future events?
