Going through the racism there opened my eyes to the importance of diversity. Diversity promotes tolerance, love, and acceptance. It gives people the opportunity to learn about one another and communicate more effectively with others from different backgrounds. The diversity I experience now affects my communication positively. I am able to connect with people that are different and still find similarities with them.
The rebellion does not become a problem until she needs the corporations help to pay for her feed. The corporations refuse to save her life because of her inability to buy their items. “We’re sorry, Violet Durn...don’t feel like you are a reliable investment...check out some of the great bargains...might be able to create a consumer portrait of you that would interest our investment team.” (Anderson 247) The corporation 's rejection to aid left a passionate, determined, young girl with a broken heart and a death sentence.
