To me I think that no one knew the boy was gone because the boy probably be missing all the time so no one was worried. When you leave like that when people didn’t even worry about, that means a whole because that isn’t normal. If that was me in that situation many people probably would’ve been looking for me because I don’t do nothing to people where they can’t just stand me. That boy is very bad and I think that one of the neighbors are going to teach him a lesson. When that day come he isn’t going to be happy at all because he will feel what he be putting other people in
People during this time period were unaware of mental disabilities which made it hard for them to get jobs. Lennie and George’s dream was to own their own farm but it was hard to attain because of money issues and Lennie's disability, “But he gets in trouble alla time because he’s so Goddamn dumb” (Steinbeck 41). George was the only one who knew about Lennie’s disability and he kept it a secret because if people knew, they would have never gotten a job. People with mental and physical disabilities were discriminated during the Great Depression because they were different, which made it hard to attain dreams. There were many protests that happened during the Great Depression involving people with disabilities, people would go to relief offices and demand for jobs, but the

It also talks about the neighbour’s only son who has to go to work every day to make his own living. Even after this, the girl has enough confidence to say that it should have ended. This is not as easy to say as it looks, because the child being abused is usually pressured to felling that the abuse occurs because they are worthless and it is a way to treat the child. Children are also not able to think on their own due to their parents making all the choices for them that actually benefits the parents. Due to this the child has no say in what they want to do.
He is running away from people all the time and I never do. He is always concerned about doing something that is right because it could be wrong or doing something wrong because it could be right while I am not. He also smokes and drinks while I don’t.

In Washington Irving’s short story “Rip Van Winkle,” the main character Rip Van Winkle is spending his days merrily ignorant of any real work and issues. He tends to the needs of the children and wives of his village instead of his own family as he seemed to have “...an insuperable aversion to all kinds of profitable labor” (pg. 620). This carefree attitude caused problems with his marriage, and his wife, Dame Van Winkle, would often chastise him or kick him out of the house. It is with these thoughts that Rip begins to make his way home early one night, only to be stopped by a “short, square built fellow” (pg.
Many of the families of Maycomb do not have the money or resources for a decent education or a steady lifestyle, so the members of those families are given a distinct disadvantage at wealth and power. Families like “the Cunninghams that never took anything they can’t pay back—no church baskets and no scrip stamps. They never took anything off of anybody, they get along on what they have” (26). The Cunninghams are a family in Maycomb that is plagued with poverty. They do not want to go into debt because they know that they may not be able pay it back.
He didn’t feel bad about it at all afterwards, as Scout tells us, “He waited until he was sure she was crying, then he shuffled out of the building.” This family doesn’t have a lot of wisdom in them, they don’t have the best life, but none of them will work so it really is their fault for their situation. Going from a man like Bob Ewell and a man like Atticus Finch, you can clearly see one main difference,
Many of the black characters, including Pecola, Cholly, and Pauline believe that they are indeed “ugly” and “dirty” because it’s what society has wanted people to think since the beginning of time. This idea that they are worth nothing and that there is no beauty or cleanliness in them has become embedded in their memories considering it is all they’ve ever known while growing up. Pecola and her family “did not live in a storefront because they were having temporary difficulty adjusting to the cutbacks at the plant. They lived there because they were poor and black, and they stayed there because they believed they were ugly” (38). While some of the black characters in The Bluest Eye are very much confident in themselves, there are characters like the Breedloves, who have succumbed to society’s opinion and have started to believe that they are the equivalent of dirtiness.
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).
He does this because he believes “that money can displace grief, frustration, and deprivation”(Matthews). Jason is stuck in the past and cannot move forward because of the hate that he has for Caddy. He becomes “a laughing stock in the town” and does nothing productive to improve his life. Jason holds onto the grudge he has for Caddy and thinks that blaming her and stealing from Ms. Quentin will improve his life in some way. Jason is never able to become successful and is stuck in his current situation because he cannot forgive Caddy.
Their dad also illegally hunts out of season but the town accepts it because the children might not get any food otherwise. Burris is a person who doesn’t care about much. He barely ever washes up because he went to school on the first day and had tons of lice in his hair it was completely visible. He is very rude because when he was asked to
