Discuss in detail what Victor Frankl says lies between Stimulus and Response. How does this impact the way that we live on a daily basis?

At least once a year the Pope visits the prisoner in this prison. "Early settlers of North America brought with them the customs and common laws of England, including the pillory, the stocks and the whipping post. During the 18th century isolating offenders from fellow prisoners became the accepted correctional practice. It was thought that long-term isolation, combined with in-depth discussions with clergy, would lead inmates to repent or become “penitent”—sorry for their sins." ~11 When discussing with a friend about how the Quakers were involved with part of prison reform, she shared how the term penitentiary and many of the primary changes.
Critical Summary Victor Frankl’s “Experiences from a Concentration Camp” from his book Man’s Search for Meaning details the everyday occurances of the average prisoner in a concentration camp. Through a series of brief stories accounting his experience in concentration camps, Frankl vividly depicts the suffering that he and other prisoners experienced and how these experiences affected them mentally. These stories demonstrate how the prisoners adapted their ways of thinking in order to ensure the survival of themselves and their friends. Survival techniques included doing anything in order to be seen as useful around the camp, using humor, and focusing one’s thoughts on love. Frankl describes how he and other prisoners used these techniques

In fact, many years after the war ended, he visited prisons for the convicted Japanese criminals that held some of his previous guards from his POW camps, and forgave them. Likewise, he wrote to the Bird, and forgave him through the words, “ Love replaced the hate I had or you. Christ said, “Forgive your enemies and pray for them” (Hillenbrand 405). Through this forgiveness, Louie was able to accept what had happened to him in the POW camps, and forgive his most prominent oppressor. For many people, forgiveness is a major part to a happy, peaceful life.
During a conversation between him and Author Wes Moore in prison, where he serves a life sentence, Other Wes Moore once again displays the fixed mindset that permeated throughout his youth and now into adulthood with this statement; he says: “We will do what is expected of us, if they expect us to graduate, we will graduate. If they expect us to get a job, we will get a job. If they expect us to go to jail, then that’s where we will go too. At some point you lose control” (Moore 126). Other Wes Moore became a sad product of his environment due to his negative disposition, a lack of positive support within his family dynamics.
Wes Moore is the author of a novel that talks about a man with the same name as him and how his life varies from his own. There are three special social factors that set good and bad Wes apart from each other. Also there was a positive impact on the bad Wes when he participated in Job Corps when he was at the campus but it did not last very long when he went back home. Which once Wes headed back down the negative path again it would ultimately lead to his life imprisonment. But it seemed like prison turned out to have a good impact on Wes’ life but it will impact his children’s lives forever.

Through Ruthie’s life and death, Rod turns to viewing St. Francisville through an entirely new lense. In the book, he relates, “But Ruthie transfigured this town in my eyes. Her suffering and death made me see the good that I couldn’t see before. The same communal bonds that appeared to me as chains all those years ago had become my Louisiana family’s lifelines. What I once saw through the melodramatic eyes of a teenager as prison bars were in fact the pillars that held my family up when it had no strength to stand (p.210).” Through Ruthie’s kindness, her perseverance in the face of death, her steadfast love despite, Rod was able to witness the community come alive.
Three-Strikes Law It is my intention to establish a relationship between the three strikes law and retention rates of prisoners incarcerated for low level offenses. Before I begin to discuss the three-strikes law, it is imperative that I give some background information on sentencing guidelines. During the 1970 's the incarceration sentences imposed were indeterminate, meaning the judge had the discretion to sentence an offender on a case by case basis and sentencing a person to state prison or county jail was supposed to be to rehabilitate that person so he/she could re-enter society. Often time’s prisoners were sentenced to different amounts of time for similar offenses. As a result of the unpredictability of early release cases and unclear
One thing that I have been taught in my World History classes is that humanity does not learn from its past errors. One way of reaffirming this statement/belief is with the relation between what happened during the last half of the 20th century in Boston, Massachusetts and the current crisis that we as Venezuelans are facing. Even though everything about both groups of people are different in infinite ways, our everyday problems are alike. While reading All Souls, an autobiographical novel written by Michael Patrick MacDonald based on his life in the South Boston area during the busing stage of Bostonian history, I first could relate to the author with the corruption his community faced. In the political stance, it is obvious how the corrupt law enforcement negatively affected the people from Southie, specifically his family.
In “Letter from Birmingham Jail” Martin Luther King defends the protestors’ thirst for justice by demonstrating the unjust society they live in. Over fifty years after the letter was written, it is still read today. Often times it gives people a sense of identity. However this letter gives me more than an identity. This letter gives me reason and motivation to always fight for a just society.
