Sometimes in life we get too uptight by protecting ourselves and the people we love because of events in life that made us that way.

Squeaky says, “But a lot of people call him my little brother cause he needs looking after cause his not quite right in the head.” In “Raymond’s Run”, Toni Cade Bambara teaches the reader that it's okay to open up and let your walls down. My reasons for this is that Squeaky doesn’t give anybody a chance and she can still have her head in the race but still have a friend to be a support system and a friend.

Each of these people are merely a few of the many who were impacted by his unique outlook on life and risky behavior.
