Gacy was so scared about what his father would do he chose to keep quiet. John Wayne Gacy was guilty of killing 33 people mostly teenage boys and burying them under his house. He got most of his victims by dressing up as pogo the clown. In conclusion I fully believe that that abuse and bullying have a lot to do with how a person reacts.

The little boys called Victor names, such as Bloody Nose, Steal-His-Lunch, and Cries-Like-A-White-Boy.
In A Boy Named Sue, Cash sang, “I grew up quick and I grew up mean. My fists got hard and my wits got keen.” This suggests that he was ridiculed because his name was Sue and he grew violent. Johnny Cash also suggested this when he sang, “some guy’d laugh and I’d bust his head.” “In the Ghetto” is much more intense in terms of violence.

The Lord of the Flies, in my opinion, is a pretty messed up book now that you think about it. One of the boys in the book, Piggy, is a good example of a resilient person because he went through a lot. Throughout the book he is constantly being taken advantage of and being stepped over by all the other boys, like how they always steal his glasses away from him without permission for their own good. But, that doesn’t change how he’s always trying to put order in the group, he never gives up even after their chaotic acts of killing Simon. Honestly, if I was in that kind of situation, I would’ve given up on them a long time ago because they just seemed hopeless in the way of their actions.

G, Heri wrote on page 54 & 55 “ Some people say when yummy was away from his gang he was as sweet as jelly,” and “ Sometimes he was more of a kid than a thug”. Theses quotes from the book proves that he constantly put on a front when he was with his gang and running the streets, that mean kid everybody knew wasn 't the real Yummy. A child, a boy can 't be a monster when he hasn 't been taught the right way page 57 “That 's like packing dynamite”. Yummy was set up for failure and when it happened people didn 't even think twice on why it happened. My thought is that if Yummy was in a good neighborhood he would’ve turned out to ne a professional football player or basketball player.

In Gary Soto's autobiography "A Summer Life" Soto recreates his journey with sin. The tone in the story is chilling because throughout the entire text all the author feels is guilt for his actions. Soto most likely wrote this to entertain people with a story of Soto's childhood and how he made a mistake that haunts him to this day. Throughout the story many things are used to help visualize the incident.
