In the text, it says,“Lyddie did not attempt to go to church. Her body wouldn’t have cooperated if she’d had the desire to go(98).” In this piece of evidence, Lyddie is too exhausted to go the church, due to overworking and long hours at the factory. If she wasn’t working at the factory anymore, this most likely would not be happening. Also in the text, it states, “It ain’t right for this place to suck the strength of their youth, then cast them off like dry husks in the wind(113).” In the quote, Lyddie’s friend, Betsy, is sent away with her uncle to Maine for being too weak to work at the factory due to being sick.

Granting children, the right to visit their incarcerated mothers is a contentious topic with both sides having strong claims and counterclaims. Terrance Bogans does an outstanding job in his essay, “Being Mommy Behind Bars: The Psychological Benefits of Child Visitation with Incarcerated Mothers” addressing why children should be allowed to visit their incarcerated mothers, citing many reasons and using many argumentative components. Bogans has an explicit thesis in the conclusion “Child visitation must be increased in order to alleviate the psychological strains that take place during incarceration” (15). Bogans uses this clearly stated thesis to tell his main point and to address his opposition. The author’s purpose is to convince readers that children and incarcerated mothers have a right to see each other and no one should stop that.

It is clear to see that Emily took her life in her own possession despairingly for the worst. She was able to have complete self-control and freely make any decision she wished to make, but she could not rescue herself from the dreadful consequences that awaited
It ruins the offender’s life and does nothing to help them rehabilitate. They do not learn to do better when they are locked with thousands of other prisoners for the rest of their lives. They cannot recover without the hope of getting out of prison. They think there is no reason to even try. As Gail Garinger stated on his article Juveniles Don’t Deserve Life Sentences, adolescents sentenced to die in prisons “were told that they could never change and that no one cared what became of them.” He explains how these kids are “left without help or hope.” This means that juveniles who get sentenced to life in prison do not have the opportunity to educate themselves, rehabilitate, or enjoy life again.

Their reason makes sense, but my sister hates that they do this.
