Each one of Opal’s actions were filled with kindness, sometimes intentional and other times unintentional, but all benefited the people she reached out to. I think Opal learned subconsciously through her mother leaving that ever action you make can affect those around you and Opal did not want her actions to have negative effects.

She had to guide herself through the rough times; she learned her limits. Through these limits, she became a brilliant and independent woman in the place where it is hardest to do so. During the wartime in the middle east, Malala encouraged education over war, “instead of focusing eradicating terrorism through war, he should focus on eradicating it through education.” (Malala 68) She could quickly succumb to the pressures to fight an oppressive regime with violence, but Malala shows that not following the natural path can lead one to wisdom. Her wisdom lets the idea of education move others along in their lives and move toward their enlightenment. She helped change the world after getting through a very tough situation.

Now that Hatsue is taking responsibility for herself, she is now in control of what she writes to Ishmael, because she understands that it is wrong to be in love with someone who is apart of a white culture group who has no empathy for the Japanese people getting abruptly shipped off to many internment camps for no particular reason other than for being
The many difficult and rebellious decisions Tris had to conceive, after the testing day, transformed her from the Abnegation outcast she once was, to the fearless Dauntless citizen she now is. Initially, Tris is faced with countless reminders of how she is unlike the other Abnegation citizens, making the decision to leave the faction she was born into (and be with people she relates to) or stay (and live in a faction she does not belong in) harder than she would like to admit. She compares herself to her naturally selfless mother, Natalie. “I note how calm she looks and how focused she is. She is well-practiced in the art of losing herself.

Throughout Mary Rowlandson's captivity, her personality seems to change, both by gaining a sense of self-preservation and by becoming more calloused and cold to regular human emotion. This newfound sense of self-preservation is seen when Mary takes a horse's foot from an English child being held captive and feeling no shame for having taken it.

At the beginning of the narrative, Mary cares about others and feels normal human emotions, but her personality makes a drastic change because she has to cope with being held

The fact the people who have drug or narcotic felonies are not able to receive food stamps or low-income housing stood out to me. This stood out because this rule is one factor of how people who have previously been incarcerated return back to prison. It surprised me how much a family member incarcerated effects a family and the impact it has on relationships.
