This was worse than rape.” (Pg. 215) This demonstrates how she was capable of completing a task just to help others when it was causing her pain. Furthermore, Irene’s wish for many years was to be able to be with her family again. She received news that her father died and her family was in danger because of her.

Adrian Elliott Ms. Houghton E1AH2 6 February 2018 Urban Tech and Wes Moore Poverty in urban cities is an issue many kids in today's economy have to face Urban Tech provides inner-city children that live in poverty and are surrounded by bad influences with technology and support that aims to provide a better education and have a positive influence on their lives and choices.

For me, Faith recalls positive memories of "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" when Dr. Mike had to defy societal norms. As Andrea has so immersed herself in this role, I found myself hoping Faith stays around. I know not what next week holds, but Andrea's characterization and inspired recitations of her dialogue as she stands up for what she genuinely wants in life should be enough to cause women everywhere to champion her cause. Quite honestly, Peter is such an untoward character that I wouldn't wish him on my worst enemy. I still say that Hope Valley needs a medical clinic, and I hope that Nurse Faith makes the right decision for her and does not cave into what society demands of her.
However, once she attended school and found support to make herself successful she truly begun the healing process. Browne, Dixon, & Hamilton-Giachritsis (2008) indicated, in research study findings that two components of generational cycle of breaking abuse is financial comfort and social support. I found this documentary could be an inspiration to all individuals who suffered sexual abuse in their life. However, as a social worker I was taught that what applies to one does not apply to all individuals. I do feel this movie could be a resource to individuals to show them change is possible.
Lopez was so inspired by this story that he decided to help this talented man and the rest of the community so that they can have a better life. Both of the men in the movie helped one another with the hope for a brighter future for them and their community. Ayers eventually got off of the street, into an apartment and a find for treatment for him mentally ill disorder (Santis, 2011). Homeless people lives unrivaled at a blink of an eye. Just like the movie “The Soloist”, one minute you are looking at a promising future and then the next minute you become homeless (Santis, 2011).
As a child, Esperanza wants only to escape Mango Street, and doesn’t understand that she has responsibility to her family or to the people in her neighborhood, and she wishes to leave them all behind. However, as she grows older, she begins to feel responsible for them. She recognizes herself as a member of a network who must give back to her community in order to break the cycle of poverty that plagues the neighborhood, but it is not until she talks with the three sisters and Alicia, however, that Esperanza understands that helping the neighborhood women will be a lifelong
This is not your country!” (AR 19). The effect of this experience causes Luis’ feeling of being unwelcome because the society tells him that his family does not belong here. Racism is a huge factor and is one of the root causes that are not addressed. Another example of root causes that aren 't address is the educational system. In school, Luis experiences the improper class placement, “the school separated these two groups by level of education:the professional-class kids were provided with college-preparatory classes; the blue-collar students were pushed into industrial arts.
Many Hispanic students begin schooling without the proper resources that many other students receive, and schools are often not equipped to compensate for these initial problems. For Hispanics, initial disadvantages often come from parents ' immigrant status and their lack of knowledge about the U.S. education system. As Hispanic students go through the schooling system, the lack school resources and their weak relationships with their teachers continue to undermine their academic success. Initial disadvantages continue to add up, resulting in Hispanics having the lowest rates of high school and college degree achievement, which hinders their chances for stable employment. The situation of Hispanic educational attainment is cause for national concern.
Therefore, blacks were being limited to schools in their area that were underfunded. Some Whites, violently protested black education by burning the schools, and white teachers who came to educate African Americans were beaten (ncpedia). This was because, the belief that if the colored were to become educated, they would be able to challenge white supremacy (Beginnings of Black Education). Discrimination of blacks, because of the thought that whites were the higher rank in society, prevented African Americans from being able to get a full and equal
Not only are white students less motivated to become active in multicultural events, but also many of whom I spoke with had failed to recognize some of the recent events that transpired on our campus as a race issue. One example of this was the actions that took place as a result of protesters coming to DePauw. There were multiple African American students who were forced to the ground and arrested unjustly by police members. Many of the white students I spoke with about this failed to recognize the racial issue at hand and utilized what many sociologists call colorblind ideology. The school has attempted to address this problem, however, as previously stated, when the student body ideals don’t match up with the institutions then it causes a negative campus climate to arouse.
