In conclusion, Melinda is frightened, brave, and lonely as shown in her actions. She might have done the right thing to call the cops and to stand up to Andy, but without any support from friends and family, it must have been hard for her to do. The quote in the first paragraph explains when you are frightened you know that you are going to do something courageous.

Depending on the strength of the bond a family has to the individual compared to the one they have with their beliefs, determines their acceptance or lack of. The rejection of one’s own family is hard to imagine and is a struggle to go through especially in a culture known for its close family ties. In the documentary, Tal Como Somos: The Latino GBT Community, a transgender women Gabriela, before her transition was kicked out of her family home when she was around sixteen years old after her mother caught her wearing hair extensions. This rejection had caused her to turn to alcohol and then drugs. She eventually conquered her addictions and successfully made her transition into the women she is now, but her experience shows how important acceptance really is.
To have this argument in mind, the question of the corruption of the legal institutions can be related back to the novels. V.I. 's choice to leave her job as a public defender to become a detective was done as she believed that as Lawyer she did not change things for the better.6 This change of career can signify two things, on the one hand she can believe that the world cannot be changed as she states that “I don't have such grand ideals as a detective. Not only do I not think I can save the world; I suspect most people are past redemption.”7 On the other hand, she can realise that crimes and problems can not only be solved by legal means. Although she might not see herself as a hero and just someone who cleans up “little trash piles here and there,”8 the fact that she remains a detective who's purpose is to detect and solve crime means that she must see some benefit in being a detective rather than a lawyer.

Blanche mostly met strangers that were still during their teens, because she wanted to feel younger than what she was, and for that reason she was kicked out of her school teacher career. One of the mental health problems that Blanche might suffer from having ‘Fantasy Prone Personality’, which is a mental health issue in which the patient lives in a fantasy world where everything twists in their favor. Blanche shows most but not all of the traits of such personality, and she also showcases bipolar
police were to find her and her family. Like her children, Yo’s mother can be represented just like the children told the tale of El Cuco. Consumed by the fear of Rafael’s dictatorship, she believes that if not well behaved, she, along with her family—will be taken away and punished for not following the rules. Also living in the United States, she must concern herself with Child Protective Services (CPS), an organization known for taking children from their parents, if neglect/abuse is heavily suspected. Not as harsh as Rafael and his police force, but for a parent like Yo’s
Most people probably don’t show integrity everyday of their lives. There are many examples of Integrity in To Kill A Mockingbird and in our world today that show that a little integrity can go a long way. Atticus showed great integrity throughout the whole book as well as Boo Radley during the final chapters of the book. When times are tough, it can be hard to show integrity. When people send their children to schools they cannot afford and “steal education”(Hechinger Report)”they essentially steal from every hard-working taxpayer.” In Article A, the parents were in a tough situation because they wanted their daughter the good education that couldn’t be provided at the school near where her parents lived and they did not have the

However I understand that she comes from a different family then I do. The only way that I can makes sense of this situation is to think that the family didn’t want Ruth’s abuser to go to jail or for Ruth to get taken away. If the law was involved Ruth probably would have been taken away by child protective services. “Sexual abuse was rampant among Ruth’s family” (Fong, R., & Furuto, S. Eds.. 2001). Therefore I can also make sense of this situation and say that it was a social norm for her family to be abuse, so it wasn’t a issue when it happen.
The style of argumentation is very closed and both mother and daughter are not very open to other suggestions and kind of stubborn. Later in the text, Rachel tells the reader about other mothers and their bad relationship between mother and daughter. In the start, the reader really gets the imagine that she really struggles because of the teenagers, also because of her title choice "a modern tragedy", which indicates the problem among two sides and that the author wants to
