Also, Junior reacts to the heartbreak of his grandmother’s death by finding an outlet to his struggles. By constructing lists of people, foods, books, and musicians that bring him happiness, Junior finds a unique way to grieve for his losses. He reflects, “I keep writing and rewriting, drawing and redrawing, and rethinking and revising and reediting. It became my grieving ceremony” (Alexie 178). Junior’s ceremony forms hope out of a bitter misery surrounding him.
In the Crucible having a good name and being accepted into society, is more important to Proctor, Parris, and Danforth then the lives of innocent people. Proctor being a model citizen and well liked does not want to tell the truth about his affair with Abigail. Next Parris is looked at as a churchly figure, he does not want to go against the bible and speak out. Lastly Danforth is viewed as making the right decisions in court, but he later sees that he has sentenced the wrong people to death, he says nothing so he can protect his name and not be questioned. Based on their character decisions in the Crucible, it 's clear that keeping your reputation is very important if you want a good name and to be accepted
Christopher is a shy young boy, with a disability and he is under his father’s authority, which disallows him to do multiple actions. During the first investigation, Christopher opens up his shell and starts to talk “I decided that I would go and ask some of the other people who lived in our street if they had seen anyone killing Wellington or whether they had seen anything strange happening in the street on Thursday night” (Haddon 34). This shows that Christopher can and will accomplish is goal even though he is overcoming one of his largest fears. Another example of Christopher overcoming adversity is the several times when he goes around his father’s authority to solve the mystery. Another example of how Christopher is coming out of his shell is the time he goes to the candy store to buy candy.
The theory that best support gang violence is the conflict delinquent subculture. Conflict delinquent subculture is a subculture in which youth oppose the mainstream through violence, underground economies and/or gang activity because of a lack of opportunities to succeed. Majority gangs are in low class neighborhoods where the kids there don’t have much offered to them. These adolescents are usually not completely loved and cared for within their households so they turn to the streets for “love” in gangs. These juveniles believe that once they gain a gang their going to be protected at all times by any counts, they mistake this for love.
Both of these religion were founded by righteous men but the way they see the religion or Nature is completely different from one another. Daoist are more about Nature 's way and going with Tao or the way of Nature. Taoism focuses more on itself and focuses more on individuals and how they can have a better lifestyle. While on the other hand Confucian focuses more on social work rather than focuses on individuals life. Confucians also believe in having a good strong government will make a better society and will stop people from doing evil.
Research Associate, Chantal Hailey asserts that without government provided services or “Without social services and youth programs, teens often become bored. They may turn untapped potential into risky behavior, like selling drugs”. This is exemplified in the movie by Doughboy who is arrested at a young age for shoplifting for no reason other than boredom. Growing up around an endless amount of gun violence and criminal acts raises the chance of these youth to “become a victim of a crime, participate in deviant behavior, and have mental health problems” (Hailey). The multitudes of young arrests like this escalates into a much larger problem.
I think that Holden is an authentic teen character because he goes through real teen experiences, has to deal with dark times, and he has to face the emotional truths. Holden Caulfield goes through things that real teenagers go through. One example is at the beginning of the book when he says “I left all the foils and equipment and stuff on the goddamn subway.” (pg. 3). He tries to downplay the fact that the whole team was mad at him, which is a common reaction teenagers have.
Eventually the boys return home, and Tom and Huck are still being burdened with the responsibility of the true facts of the murder. Occasionally, the two boys will visit Muff Potter in jail, where he does not know that the crime that he was accused of is false. He thanks the boys continuously for all that they are doing from him, but in reality, even though Tom and Huck are providing his with things, they have the key to get him out of jail and out of the mess that he is in, because they know that Potter did not actually kill doctor Robinson. This is where the change in Tom occurs. In court, Tom testifies for Muff Potter.
Excluded from the Boy Scouts, stopped regularly by the police, and feared by much of the LA population, they felt alienated from the rest of the world. However, the gang was supportive and like-minded, giving them a home in the racist, angry world. Though the first gang was created for a sense of family, later gangs formed out of obligation and a need for protection. People rarely left their ten block radius, lest they be found in another gang’s territory. Murder, drive-bys and revenge were a regular event in the LA neighborhoods, affecting every
A number of parents have suggested that children should not be convicted as adults for their crimes because children don’t have the same mentality as adults and act without reasoning of the consequences they have for committing such a crime. Children’s brains aren’t fully developed so they have a habit of imitating what they see in TV or from a role model they look up to. Children most of the time are forced to commit a crime by the friends they hang out with and are scared to walk away or say no. In the article “Kids Are Kids” the author states that “Today we are witness to criminal defendants - facing life sentences without parole - who cannot shave, still play with fire trucks, and love to act out scenes from TV or video
O’Brien’s explanations of the war’s purpose and stories of his experiences are simplified to make it easier for Kathleen, and many others, to understand, which also helps him cope with his recollections of the war. For example, when Kathleen asks how the war began he summarizes, “‘Some people wanted one thing, other people wanted another thing’” (O’Brien 175). This statement is incredibly indifferent for someone who continuously risks his life and witnesses the deaths of many comrades. Such a response demonstrates how greatly he has come to terms with the atrocities he witnesses, no matter how much uncertainty likely surrounds his life—or at least how he wishes his daughter will see his view of the war. Kathleen passively enables her father to develop a new outlook on the
