A couple days later, Johnny dies, but tells Ponyboy "Stay gold Ponyboy". Dally; a couple hours later gotten killed by the police from the anger of Johnny's death. Days after both Johnny and Dally die, Pony realizes that they were important in his life and that he feels empty without them and they're advice and support. Pony now doesn't have any close friends where he can just talk to about things. Although he has his brothers, he doesn't usually have positive conversations with them and he is afraid that they might do something and mess a certain situation.
Doug lying next to his wife with children of his own sleeping in the other room woke up and decided that he “will arise and go now and kill Ralph Underhill” (Bradbury 1). The reason this thought came about was because of the horrible things Ralph did to him when they were twelve. These memories were so vivid that the only seemingly just thing to do was to kill Ralph. Doug was not sure why it took so long to seek revenge and it had Doug questioning, “Why it hadn't come to [him] when [he] was thirty or forty”
Once, in a social occasion of chapel individuals, his mom shared about the demise of his uncle that his dad battled for very long. His uncle was not only a casualty of attempt at manslaughter but rather a casualty of dogmatism. He kicked the bucket in the road since he was a Black alcoholic man jabbed fun about by White alcoholic men. The mother reminded the speaker that her disclosure isn 't signified "to make you frightened or intense or to influence you to abhor anyone" however only for a more youthful sibling Sonny. Unwittingly, it is an epiphany that the Narrator would later recognize.
Family is the people with whom you share a strong bond. Before the rumble, Ponyboy realized the difference between his gang and the Socs. The greasers weren’t just a gang; they had a strong connection. The Socs were just a gang; they had no compassion, no love. Dally killed himself because of Johnny’s death but Randy hid his feelings not wanting to show them; his reputation mattered more.
An example of Ponyboy almost maturing from the influence of Darry and Sodapop, is when their parents were killed in a car crash. When their Parents died it caused them to get closer and look out for eachother more (#3). Darry then decided to step up and “come of age” to try to be a father like figure for Ponyboy. Ponyboy doesn’t seem to think that Darry cares for him because of the way Darry treats Ponyboy so Ponyboy turns to Sodapop more, “Sodapop is different from anybody; he understands everything...almost. Like he 's never hollering at me all the time the way Darry is, treating me like I’m six instead of fourteen,” (#2).
While Shelly was describing this to Bo, she said: “Redmond said that after he saw how willing I was to mix it up, he had requested my records and decided he couldn’t afford to have someone poisoning the team’s morale…” (140) This made her have an emotional break down, steal her mother’s car, and drive one hundred miles an hour down the freeway before it flipped over and rolled off the road. Redmond antagonized Bo about his name and because he quit the football team. Redmond put him in anger management which in the end was really a good thing, but Bo didn’t really see this as a good thing in the beginning. This is where he met Shelly. Redmond was even contacting Bo’s father, and they were conspiring together.
One of their similarities is that they both have neglectful and abusive parents. This example fits Dally because his parents don’t care where he is or what he is doing. “Shoot, my old man don’t give a hang whether i’m in a car wreck or drunk in the gutter” (88 or 90). If Dally’s parents care about him, then he shouldn’t be so mean and aggressive, and he shouldn’t have been put up in jail at the age of ten. This example fits Johnny, as well.
In Gacy’s early life he was the victim of his father’s scorn being beaten constantly by his father with a razor strop. A couple instances know would be when he stole a truck when he was 6 and his father beat him for it, one other told instance of abuse was when John and another boy were accused of molesting a little girl where his father again beat him with his trusty strop. However it wasn’t just physical abuse he was given his father also emotionally abused him calling him a failure telling him he was dumb and stupid. Gacy was an ill boy born with a heart defect leading him to be hospitalized most of his life from ages 14 to 18, where his father accused him of faking everything. The abuse was so bad that when Gacy was molested by a family friend he suffered in silence.
The reason I believe this is sad because before Ren moves to Bomont, his mother dies of cancer back in Boston, and his father is a dead beat. His mother gives him a sense of security in the old movie that he doesn't have in the new movie. Which gets made up for by his Uncle Wesley and his Aunt Vi. One scene that is relatively the same is the scene where Chuck openly abuses Ariel. He tells her to get out of the truck and she starts vandalizing the truck with a piece of steel rebar and he gets out an beats her up.
Much of the LGBT community was made up of teenagers. “Parents in the old days actually threw their children out with the clothes they were wearing when they found out they were gay.” Rejected as outcasts in a society of prejudice and discrimination against minority groups, suicide and homeless rates ran high in the LGBT community as many felt they had nowhere else to turn to. The gay community seemed to be a lost cause in their fight for equality. The Stonewall Inn and Mafia Corruption When the Stonewall Inn Restaurant closed after a fire in the mid 1960s, a mafia leader by the name Fat Tony purchased, renovated and turned the space into a gay bar.
