The most noteworthy conflicts were balancing motherhood and her role as a political figure. For example, during her tenure as an activist, strangers and colleagues benefited from her affection, time and devotion. Whereas, her children did not and this ultimately negatively impacted her children's lives in their failed social relationships.

This story is a perfect example of the losses a mother will do to protect her child in the time of a disaster. Anna and her daughter moves people to realize how important their parents
Wilson, probably wasn’t meant to become deviant but seeing his brother and dad act in those ways influenced him. When they interviewed Wilsons, sister she said everyone compared Wilson and his brother and that made me think he of him being a secondary deviant. As far as Peagler, goes she did go through a rehabilitation process that included being an activist to other women, helping other people get their GED, and counseling. I don’t think she was a true deviant, and I think she should have released immediately. Violence, played a major role in Peagler life because she missed seeing her kids grow up, her family was stressed out over the situation, and because she was a victim of domestic violence she lost her life, mentally and later physically.
