In “Making Sarah Cry” the bullies judge Sarah and the main character because they look and act different. In the poem it says .”And so he gladly joined their fun Of making Sarah cry But somewhere deep within his heart, He just never knew why” this is showing that he knew that he didn’t know why he was doing it and that he could stop any day but he didn’t. Another piece of evidence is that “The funny faces that she made And the way she’d stomp her feet Whenever they mocked the way she walked Or stutter when she’d speak” This is where he is pointing out when she would do things or naming everything she would do that would trigger the bullying. This is significant because he is thinking and he knows that he does it for no reason. Even though making fun of sarah was funny but he had some doubts to begin with.

In my opinion, being different is good because no one is the same. Later in the story, Sarah would make funny faces and stomp her feet and she would shudder when she’d speak.

He kinda seems like he says those words so much because he doesn't know other ones or is too childish and those words scare him. For example near the end of the book on page 201 holden sees the f-word written on the wall and it makes him furious but he's almost to scared to wipe it off the wall because he thinks that someone would catch him wiping it off and think he wrote it. This event makes holden look immature and shows he doesn't like foul language when it passes a certain point do to his

George is cruel to Lennie a lot of the time, calling him “a crazy bastard” even though the connotation of “bastard” is astoundingly harsh.

He knows that what he did is wrong, but he doesn’t know how to fix it, and he thinks that George might be able to fix the problem.

This allows him to show his disapproval of Hester as he feels that Hester’s sin is unforgivable and she should be shunned for eternity instead of painted as a hero, which is what Hawthorne
