She kept teasing me, pushing me, and I would tell her to stop but it wasn’t helping. She punched me multiple times until I was bleeding, and had a black eye. The teacher had finally came, she asked what happened but I didn’t want to come out and say I got beat up. I didn’t want to get beat up again so I told the teacher I fell off the slide, and also told my mother the same. When my mother seen my black eye she was appalled, and told me to be careful.
I enjoyed reading this novel because it’s about a woman, Frances Ann Benedetto, who was abused, physically, emotionally and sexually, by her husband, Bobby Benedetto. This book is about her struggle of fleeing with her 10-year-old son, Robert Anthony Benedetto, who knows nothing of this abuse because his parents always tell him that her injuries are accidents. It also gives you a fitting example of how domestic abuse impacts you and the people around you. I chose this book because when I read the back I was intrigued as to what would happen to Fran and Robert. At the start of the book Fran has already fled with her son from her husband who is a police officer.
My aunt try to shake him and even took a picture of him because she thought he was messing around and wanted to show him the picture after. When she put her hand on his arm, his body was cold and she realized that she needed to get help immediately. After the police and ambulance showed up, nobody was allowed inside the house, not even his own mom and brother. There was some people crowded in the neighbors drive way crying, others were across the street sitting on the side walk crying as well. It was one of the hardest moment of my life because not only did it bring me down but also my whole family.
Second of all, when her husband Patrick told Mary that he will leave her,even though she is a good wife it sounded really “cold” and was careless. In the story he says “I’ve got something to tell you,” and also says “Go on, sit down” this to me sounds a bit harsh considering he didn’t say “please” or “may”. All of these variables : her shock at the news, the pregnancy she is going through and rough news, made her think of a life in ruin, which consequently lead her to a sudden frenzy. The third reason why Mary is a sane individual is because she was smart enough to plan a positive order of events to cover up her murder. For example, in the story it states “It was extraordinary, now, how clear her mind became all of a sudden,” and also “She began thinking very fast.” This explains how she was not insane and the murder was a temporary weakening in her judgement.
Mama was really upset with me. I ran across this long road and there were cars coming at me, but I just closed my eyes and ran really, really fast. It was so much fun! When mama finally found me, she was crying but told me she was glad I was okay and to never scare her like that again. I just wanted to be outside, I didn 't mean to scare mama.
After leaving the club, he is in a car accident and must go to the hospital; however, while everyone drives by the accident, the woman, Marin, decides to stay, go with him to the hospital and tell the police and doctors everything. This is a very uncommon situation that happens by chance, as, “Marin can’t explain why it mattered, the hours and hours, for somebody she didn’t even know… He was not anything to her. He wasn’t her boyfriend or anything like that. Just another brazer who didn’t speak English” (Cisneros 357). It appears as if she feels for him and is concerned for his well-being, as everyone else left because no one knew who he was; even she had just met him.
In addition to Gilberts struggles there are also some diversity issues with Arnie’s mother, because of weight gain she has been laughed at and pointed at by the people in her town, that when she passed her children does not want to humiliated again so they burn the house down. I chose to focus on the lack of knowledge and empathy the people in the town had regarding Arnie and his disability, with consideration of the time era in which the movie was filmed. The way the sheriff handled Arnie while taking him into custody and also the doctor’s thoughts on Arnie’s life span. The diversity issues were present well in the film, I watched the movie when it first came out and I can say now that I have expanded my knowledge I am able to see the issues presented in the
Not so bad. I didn’t understand what happened until my mom explained that he wasn’t going to the bathroom, he was doing the dirty. Now I finally understood why they were so creeped out. After my mom was chasing after the guy, she called the cops. They finally showed up about 30 minutes later.
In paragraph 36, for example, June does not tell her mother why she had all those bruises on her arm were from mean June beating her. The mean June beat her.

June is so worried that her mother will have to go out of her way to fix things, that she just lets herself get pushed around.

When she had an serious injury in the hospital, and she totally forgot about all the things before the accident, all the things he knew was her parent told her, she was curious about what they said, she wanted to find out by herself. She didn’t just lie on the bed and do nothing, she was trying to regain her memory. Even though she didn’t know it is good or bad, she tried many methods to find out what actually happened in the accident. Another main character in the story is Libby’s mother, the thing I don’t like about her is she didn’t tell the truth to her daughter, and lied to her. Libby’s mother lied to Libby that Libby hit someone who has been seriously injured, and Libby’s mother knew that that person is Libby’s friend Kasey.
Patricks ' illness was created to gain attention for the mother, making her son deathly ill in the process. Assistant Prosecutor Sheila Whirley told jurors: “She manufactured illnesses. People don’t want to believe that a mother would do this because mothers are supposed to plant the seeds of love that grow for a lifetime.” Kinsella admitted to police that she “accidentally” gave her son the wrong medication “on occasion.” Doctors disputed that because of the amount of medication and types of drugs that were found in Patrick 's system showed she had intentionally poisoned her
It was also a very common discrimination. Desmond however did not accept the inequality and decided to fight for her right. When her car broke down in Nova Scotia, she decided to see a movie to pass time while it was being fixed. At the counter she was refused a ticket for the downstairs seating because the seats were usually for ‘English’ Canadians only. She was angered by the treatment she got and then she went to sit in the downstairs seating despite having a ticket for the balcony seat.
Her father, Nao Kao Lee, was especially enraged on two occasions. One, when the doctors were performing a spinal tap on Lia, he said that was when “Lia was lost”, as the Hmong believed that procedure would cripple her in this life and her future lives . The second occasion was when he misunderstood that he had to sign a paper that stated that Lia would die in two hours, when it fact “released in two hours” was what was written. “In the Hmong moral code, foretelling a death is strongly taboo.”, and so Nao Kao grabbed his daughter and ran. He was caught afterwards, but these scenarios show that the Hmong had a strong sense of values that the doctors weren’t able to understand and both parties were at a disadvantage.
