When Jeannette explains to Rex Walls what Erma did to Brian, he starts to shake and cover his ears and pretend like he couldn’t hear them. After Lori and Jeannette talk, Jeannette thinks, “You’d be weird, too, if Erma was your mom... it would explain a lot… Why he drank so much and why he got so angry.” Rex Walls tried to escape from Welch and its people for a better future, but in the end couldn’t escape from his problems because he focused too much on his past and never gave the future his complete attention. When the mines started to shut down, many people turned to alcohol and drugs to keep their minds off of their problems in life.

Then, when Mayella is asked if her father has ever mistreated her, she hesitates before answering no. The hesitation was clearly noticeable and had to mean something.

Another book that proves two wrongs don’t make a right is The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. One way that The Outsiders proves that two wrongs don’t make a right is because the socs would bully the greasers constantly. Throughout the book everyone just got tired of fighting back and forth, so the socs and greasers came up with a deal. They would have a rumble and if the socs won, they could continue to come to the greasers territory and bully them. If the greasers won, the socs wouldn’t be allowed on greaser territory.

This operation has many effects on Charlie that can be argued to be positive or negative. It is considered in the short science fiction story ¨Flowers For Algernon¨ by Daniel Keys that Charlie Gordon was worse off after the operation. It’s proven to be this way as a result of Charlie 's behaviors; mental cost after the experiment/the effects of the surgery compared to the
It wouldn’t serve well to attempt to stand up for ourselves during this time; because the drill sergeants made sure we wouldn’t win (competition). No matter what we did, the drill sergeants would yell and make us do pushups (power abuse). The constant verbal attacks and painstaking exercises made us very wary of the drill sergeants (distrust). Discipline was the goal of the drill sergeant, graduation was the goal of the trainee
Before my dad’s death in 1989 I had suffered from mental, sexual, and physical abuse at different times, from different people. I blamed him for not stopping it, for not saving me, and his death added to my pile of excuses to fail. An alcoholic right from the start, I learned how to drink like the pros around me: as fast as I could until the bottle was empty. I found this fun and the lack of accountability was empowering. I hated being weak and I especially hated being the victim, so I became manipulative, and took advantage of the weakness of others.
Judgements are often made by people without considering past or current situations of others. By putting yourself in one’s shoes and experiencing their situation yourself, an opinion will change. Addiction is a horrible disease that took over Nic Sheff’s life, much to the dismay of his father. Through personal experience of years of anguish, depression, anger, and disappointment, the judgements of Sheff altered.

Finch’s household at first seemed amusing but was proven otherwise. It is slowly revealed that he actually advocates for sexual relationships between children and adults. And that he abused his influence of being a doctor, by manipulating with medication and psychological factors. His unethical ways begins to shine especially in a certain scene when he gives Burrough alcohol and unauthorized medication to help assist in his fake suicide attempt, so he could be taken out of school, which ultimately lead to him dropping out of school. This leads to Burrough not having a solid base of education which makes it harder for him to secure a job in the future.
She claims that during her time working as an electrician, the men at work would take her equipment and torment her. When she confronted Roberts about the problems she was facing, she felt that she was being picked on and that the men were not only jealous of what she was capable of, but also discouraged by the fact that she was a woman performing a man’s job. Roberts asks Rock out to dinner in order to figure out what is going on, which potentially made Rock uncomfortable pushing her to the breaking point of quitting her job as an electrician. Personally, I would not consider this as an example of quid pro quo because Roberts did not impose any threats towards Rock if she declined the invitation. On the other hand, if Roberts’s had threatened Rock stating that she would lose her job or not receive a raise for declining the invitation, then the circumstances of the situation would be different.
This would cause the students to become very suspicious—always questioning the legitimacy of different ideas. That is to say, children who were brought up in residential schools usually had a large range of trust issues, and consequently, lacked compassion for others. Finally, a disturbing quantity of students—both male and female—were raped by nuns and priests. You could only imagine the kind of impact that could have on an individual. Some students were considered lucky, if it only happened once, for many children were raped constantly, and some were even impregnated by their abuser.
