I never really fully cried, but I did loose a lot of sleep after my grandparents death. My mother was worried for a while because I would not sleep and my health was beginning to diminish. She ended up taking me to the doctor and they declared that I was suffering from insomnia. There was no explanation, but I knew that I was still grieving my grandparents, it was the only way that I could; since no one would know that I would cry in the middle of the night. About a couple of months later, everything was beginning to go back to normal, I still do not have the courage to speak about my grandmother or grandfather without shedding a tear.
Bryan Stevenson never knew what could happen and he was full of fear of the possibility of jail time or death. Herbert Richardson was a mentally ill person who didn’t get the help he needed, and due to that, he killed little girl and was executed. During that time, the mentally ill lost most of its funding, and because of that, those who needed help couldn’t get it. Richardson and other mentally ill people didn’t have much money and lived in poverty. Without justice, the world would become nothing but poverty, despair and fear, and the only ones who wouldn’t be affected are the

Upon hearing Allie's death, who battled with leukemia at a young age, Holden is unable to cope with the reality and decides to take out his frustrations through destructive tendencies. J.D. Salinger writes, “I was only thirteen, and they were going to have me psychoanalyzed and all, because I broke all the windows in the garage. I don’t blame them. I slept in the garage the night he died, and I broke all the godam windows with my fist, just for the hell of it (Salinger 44).” He was inexperienced with handling grief and death at a young age; rather than rationalizing the situation, he decides to take out his grief and frustrations though destroying property and hurting himself in the process.
Today this community gathers in honor of a dear, young girl taken from her family far too early, under deplorable, heartbreaking circumstances. Everyone knew Connie as a strikingly beautiful, lighthearted, decisive girl. It is rare that a teen can have such capability for strong decision making so early. That is not to say that Connie always made the right decisions, as no teenager ever does, but her willingness to make decisions at all is remarkable. My own surplus of indecision led to several regrettable life moments, and so I hope that Connie had no regrets in her young life, which was cut short far too soon.
She feels pity for her Maggie, who is very shy. Maggie experienced a traumatic event that her scars made her unconfident and unable to make any eye contact.

She went on to say, my mom was the most amazing woman ever and the best friend I have ever had and that is what keeps me going everyday.

I could tell her everything and she wouldn't judge me- only help me and be understanding." Simmons stated that at any age, it is hard to lose a parent, but is made more difficult in her situation because some people feel the need to gossip about her mother and say hurtful things. She says that she tries to ignore those comments, and focus on the positive people who have done so much to help her.
Everything changed and my life got crushed in pieces when I was 10 years old and my grandmother died. She died due to the lack of care and knowledge of the Russian doctors, who weren’t able to help with a disease (meningitis) that could have been easily cured if they would have had at least a simple interest in helping! My mom was of course heartbroken, and everyone seemed to realize how terrifying it is for her, but no one was really there for me. I was all alone, dealing with the death of one of the most important persons in my life. She was gone, and I had no one by my side that I felt confident enough to share with.
I sat there nervously wondering why any college would ever accept me, frozen with panic unable to continue any of my applications until I heard my sister’s voice ring in my head telling me how gifted I am and motivating me to continue because I’ll never flourish if I never try. In those moments of self-contemplation, I realized that my sister was the most influential person in my life. She has been with me through thick and thin and I doubt I would have gotten this far in life without her. Throughout my life, I don’t think there has been anyone rooting for me quite like my sister.

Aibileen Clark from The help is my most favorite character because I realize that Aibileen is one of the strongest women that I ever known. It is not easy for everyone to control their own emotion when they were disdained and Aibileen proved it for me.

Aibileen is brave too. She dare to share her bad experience with Skeeter for Skeeter’s book even she knew that it can do harm for her if other white people know about this
In her mind, reading the letters would be showing that she has hope and love for her parents, but she just wants to forget their very existence. “But you had a fine daddy. A man who loved you. And I know that makes it all the harder to get by, and that’s both a blessing a curse that we all just got to bear in this life.
Not only was I young but I took care of my family and started to realize how hard it was to really be in her shoes. After weeks passed and she started finding out her illnesses, we got really close. I started going to her more for everything when I would have troubles and struggles. There would never be a day nor dull moment that she wouldn’t listen or give me the best advice.
It might have not been the best situation to be in but it made me realize I am capable of doing anything I set my mind to on my own. By the age of nine I was making my own responsible choices of grades in school, my laundry, cleaning and feeding myself when no one was around. It pushed me to become the very strong willed young lady that I am today.
