In the letter left for Maximillian and Valentine inscribed it says, “All human wisdom is contained in the two words wait and hope”, (Dumas 531). In the 14 years of imprisonment Dantes was only able to hope for freedom and be patient. This ties into the theme of not knowing true happiness without misery because it develops how Edmond loses his path but with hope of freedom is able to overcome the obstacle that binds him to Chateau D’if. As Edmond had once been praised by Mr. Morrel and thought of as a son by him, Dantes does the same for Morrel’s son. At the end of the book Edmond treats Maximillian and Valentine as his children.
Jonathan Wayne Nobles was no longer the same man that was sentenced to die twelve years prior to his death. Throughout his time in prison, he made many positive strides towards becoming a better person. Jon sought out help for his drug addiction, and attended twelve-step meetings for years.

Jon ministered to other inmates and even took part in mass on special occasions.
Some try to fix the damaged the therapy has done, but most end up not being able to fix it and their bond with their family ultimately gone. A bisexual and genderfluid young man, who went through the gay conversion therapy, said it was torture. The conversion therapy he went through lasted two years. They told him that his faith community rejected his sexuality, that he was the abomination they had learned and taught about in Sunday School, that he was the only gay person in the world, and that “inevitably” he would contract H.I.V. and AIDS. They said these spiteful and hurtful things all just to make him feel that he was wrong for being who he was, but sadly that isn’t all they did.

Oliver has been gone for ten years and when he comes home he has to find out how to cope with his new surroundings. It is a little more comforting that he has Emmy, a somewhat familiar friend, to comfort him through it all. Emmy tries to hang out with him and make it fun so she can get his mind off of everything else going on. “”Coming home feels like being kidnapped all over again”” (Benway 113).
After Andy is first brought into the prison and proves himself by not breaking down on the first night, he keeps to himself for a month before approaching Red. Andy approaches Red because he has heard that Red knows how to get stuff, and asks for a rock hammer. After Andy introduces himself to Red, he asks “I wonder if you might get me a rock hammer.”. It is clear from this quotation that Andy wishes to get an item into the prison for himself, although it is against the rules of the prison. This request from Andy shows that he is determined to begin his plan of escaping

An accompanying investigation uncovered two incidents in the summer of 2013 when officials at the state prison in Perryville dismissed women’s claims that they were going into labor.

Stanford Prison Experiment Philip Zimbardo questioned, “What happens when you put good people in an evil place? Does humanity win over evil, or does evil triumph?” (Zimbardo, 1971) In 1971 a psychologist named Philip Zimbardo conducted an experiment on the effects prison has on young males with the help of his colleague Stanley Milgram. They wanted to find out if the reports of brutality from guards was due to the way guards treated prisoners or the prison environment.
Does it make sense to lock up 2.4 million people on any given day, giving the U.S the highest incarceration rate in the world. More people are going to jail, this implies that people are taken to prison everyday for many facilities and many go for no reason. People go to jail and get treated the worst way as possible. This is a reason why the prison system needs to be changed. Inmates need to be treated better.
