Hughes was one of the few kids who really wanted to see Jesus, but ended up lying to not keep his aunt and other adults waiting. The worse thing the pressure brought to Hughes was his loss of faith. He no longer could believe in Jesus, and he lost that faith while making other people happy that he had been “saved.” Orwell doesn't buy what society believes about beggars. Beggars have to go through a lot on the streets, to still be detested by society. Society doesn't care what beggars have to go through, they only care about who has a lot of money.
First of all, when Huck first discovered Jim, he acknowledged “people would call [him] a low down Abolitionist and despise [him] for keeping mum” (Twain 32). Knowing the rest of his community would despise him created an inner argument in his head. Huck grew up without the luxury of a family and home to learn the manners and habits of a normal lifestyle. But the question is whether it really is a luxury or “normal”. He began to understand the distinction between his own rights and wrongs on his own and questioned “the use you learning to do right, when it’s troublesome to do right and aint no trouble to do wrong” (69).
This was like torture for Dimmsdale he even had to help in the shaming of Hester.

He didn’t think he was capable of leading his people to salvation because of his actions (ch. 17).
In “Making Sarah Cry” the bullies judge Sarah and the main character because they look and act different. In the poem it says .”And so he gladly joined their fun Of making Sarah cry But somewhere deep within his heart, He just never knew why” this is showing that he knew that he didn’t know why he was doing it and that he could stop any day but he didn’t. Another piece of evidence is that “The funny faces that she made And the way she’d stomp her feet Whenever they mocked the way she walked Or stutter when she’d speak” This is where he is pointing out when she would do things or naming everything she would do that would trigger the bullying. This is significant because he is thinking and he knows that he does it for no reason. Even though making fun of sarah was funny but he had some doubts to begin with.

Is this what you teach her? Lessons to be a toy for American boys!” Maya’s father may have believed that her actions were shameful, but Nurzhan, her brother, believed differently and felt the need to voice his thoughts to their mother. “It’s different here, Mama.

She didn’t want her baby to die or to be sent to the Fringes but what she received from her sister was isolation (Wyndham 71). “So there has been a Deviation; and deviation, any deviation from the true image is blasphemy - no less. You have produced a defilement.” Due to the laws, people had to report to the governor if they see anyone or anything is deviation, so in Waknuk, discrimination is always happening. (Wyndham 72). Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not.
She seemed like the only person who cared and payed attention to Ender. Peter was a bully to Ender, and his parents resented him because of the past they were trying to evade. Another imperative quote from chapter 3 is in the beginning when the two anonymous voices were talking. “‘He [Ender] won’t want to leave her. [Valentine]’ ‘So, what are you going to do?’ ‘Persuade him that he wants to come with us more than he wants to stay with her.’ ‘How will you do that?’ ‘I’ll lie to him.’ ‘And if that doesn’t work?’ ‘Then I’ll tell the truth.’” (Card, page 16) We can conclude that one of the voices is Colonel Graff because he’s the one who came to try to persuade Ender to go with him.
In the short story A Good Man Is Hard to Find by F.C she illuminates on the point of Faith vs. Dought.

When my grandmother called me, I’d say, ‘Yes ma’am.’ I wanted to say, ‘Why do you hit me? Am I really a bad child? Why do you treat me like I’m not part of your family?’” As I’m reading his story he has a very remarkable story in my opinion, and he’s a perfect reason we need to change this system. He wanted to tell the cops or his social worker but he was afraid to because he would be hit by his foster grandma. For some children this may not even work but it is definitely worth a shot to help these kids like Deshon.
