According to Lewis Hine 's report, "... the air at times is dense with the coal-dust, which penetrates so far into the passages of the lungs that for long periods after the boys leave the breaker, he continues to cough up the black coal dust" (Doc B). This can lead to severe illness, like lung problems, and it can even result in death.

David had also lost all his money in a bad investment and was unemployed at the age of 38. His marriage underwent a strain and when his wife suggested a temporary separation, David became very upset and saddened.

There was no need to castrate David when they could have reconstructed his penis like they eventually did anyway.
Sadly, while people were innocently waiting for the rescue teams, disgusting people raped the since the victims had nowhere to run to. Families left stranded, most people had no transportation t get away, and they had no shelter to be safe. 100,000 people in total were left stranded ( Hurricane Katrina ). All valuables lost in the storm weren’t salvageable at all. Families were just left with the structure of their house if it hadn’t already collapsed on itself.
This is something that is happening all over our world today. People who need assistance will never receive it because of their position. Many people die each day to things like diarrhea and the cold because they can’t afford a typical check up. “Based on poor access to health care, 1 billion people have no chance of ever seeing a doctor in their life (Infographic).” This is a fact that even pertains to people in America. Health care is a thing that a few in our world have access to.
