Peg stated, “For the first time since my paralysis set in, I realized there was something worse than having polio.” She is referring to having a family who couldn 't visit or abandoning her. Alice was abandoned by her parents at the young age of 3, Dorothy could not go home because there was no one to care and tend to her needs and her parents try to visit once a month, Shirley’s family live too far to visit often so come only once every few months, and Renee’s family also lived very far away (200 miles)! Family is what kept Peg going, everyone needs a support system and they did not abandon Peg. They took her home to visit a couple of times and tried their best to accommodate to her needs. They were a very loving and close-knit family and their presence in room 202 gave something for the girls to look forward to each week.
“They feel isolated and mentally sick. Ashoke feels more burdensome than his wife because there is no one with them. They are amongst strangers. According to Sue Brenann Hospital symbolizes control and authority ““where individuals are subjected to disciplinary regimes aimed producing ‘healthy’ and self-sufficient citizens of the nation” (6). He thinks he has migrated for the sake of good life and better opportunities but feels isolated and burdened “Although it is Ashima who carries the child, he too, feels heavy, with the thought of life, of his life and life about to come from it” (13).
Though my parents had to leave most of their family behind to provide for us, they have done it without second-guessing. My brother was eight and I was six when we ventured out into an unknown path with our mother to our better future. After we arrived from El Salvador, my father tried everything to make us feel at home. His efforts, at the time, were not enough. I missed my family, friends, my home, but most importantly my freedom.
Today, 39 million people have been forced to flee their homes due to conflict or natural disaster. 10 million are refugees and 29 million are internally displaced persons. People displaced inside their countries face the same hardships as refugees but lack protection under international law. Usually victims of war and oppression flee in large numbers, arriving in poor, underdeveloped states without the means to care for them. Making the situation worse, the conflict that forced them from their homes may destabilize the region in which they've sought refuge.
They have no reason sometimes but most reason always be because of a family or too much going on in their old country. Immigrants sometimes don’t have the chances & stuff that they can get from coming to the United States then in their own country. Some countries have dictators & they try to escape that by coming to the United States but we also have some families that come to stay for good that only come to give their kids a better chance in life.

To rebuild a life, the first step is to find money. That task becomes very difficult if no one accepts them for a job. Many displaced people are barred by barriers stopping them from getting a job. These barriers include not having good education, limited job experience, or experience in a job not needed in a wealthy country, no access to and lack of money to provide transportation. An article from popular media outlet ‘The Huffington Post’ states that, “many homeless people are employed... to get a job, people must be clean, and they must wear clean clothing... 35% of homeless people have problems with mental illness.” This is a difficult situation for someone who is unable to obtain access to washing facilities, such as a bathroom like the one in your house.
One of the myriad of effects is the pressure the crisis provides on European countries to provide refugees with food and shelter. “The strains on housing, social services, education, and employment are showing”(“European Migration: Crisis and Consequences.”). The four million refugees from Syria who seek refuge in European countries renders it challenging for European countries to provide everyone with the basic necessities. Correspondingly, this enormous statistic means less availability of jobs, which is the reason why only 2500 refugees of Germany’s 260,000 refugees are actually employed. Moreover, some private sector initiatives attempt to integrate refugees into the workforce, but they do not always end up successful.
This is counteractive to the egocentric and self-serving culture that is popular in society today and can be potentially detrimental to both mental and behavioral health. Mental health research supports the importance of qualities such as generosity and gratitude for overall mental and emotional health (Yeung 6). Serving others provides many positive repercussions, specifically for emotional and mental health. This change to a generous and selfless mindset promotes positive emotions
Many people don’t realize that we as a society do have an adoption problem in our communities. Generally people believe that we solve the problem of adoption by adopting from outside countries, but don’t realize the number of homeless children we have in our communities. People think that our communities don’t have orphan children or homeless children, so they turn to international adoption. International adoption should be promoted but with the consideration of
This was when I moved to Virginia to live with my aunt and uncle, I felt as if my own mother had abandoned me and I questioned what I had done wrong to be dumped here. As developing teenager, I was suffering through tremendous emotions and I did not know how to cope with myself because in my culture, there was no such thing as depression or having an emotional crisis; you dealt with the situation yourself or allow it to overtake your life. Alike many children, moving and adjust to a different area is difficult, especially when you have to make whole new friends, but the way I had to view it in order to survive, it was a chance to start over. The transition was truly not as smooth as it should have been and I must admit I cried for months
