However, this has a domino effect on the remaining people in the family since they would spend the few dollars that they managed to scrape up on cigarettes and alcohol; “There may be a lack of tea or bread in the house but Mam and Dad always manage to get the fags, the Wild Woodbines. They have to have the Woodbines in the morning and anytime they drink tea (McCourt 138).” It is obvious that the smoking and drinking are detrimental to the family, but the McCourts trap themselves in an endless loop. Each time something unfortunate occurs, things go from bad to worse when this sadness or hopelessness prompt the parents to spend more money on their habits (addictions), making conditions significantly worse for their children

After Finny’s accident, Gene struggled with guilt and his life was changed because of it. “I spent as much time as I could alone in our room, trying to empty my mind of every thought, to forget where I was, even who I was. One evening when I was dressing for dinner in this numbed frame of mind, an idea occurred to me, the first with any energy behind it since Finny fell from the tree. I decided to put on his clothes” (Knowles 29).
Arthur “Boo” Radley is a seemingly minor but subtly impactful character in Lee’s book. According to rumor, he joined a gang, was convicted of some relatively minor crime, and was supposed to be sent to a state boarding school, but his father refused. Boo once, while cutting up newspapers, stabbed his mother in the leg with scissors and continued calmly scanning the papers. His father convinced a judge not to send Boo to an asylum, so he was kept in his house, never seen again by the community, and became the source of horror stories for children. The flames of gossip are, as usual, fueled thoroughly by Miss Stephanie Crawford and tend to be ridiculously twisted: “Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that’s why his hands were bloodstained” (16).

He had done this a few other times in the book, and it was usually because he was to lazy to go to a pay phone. Holden was an average teenage boy with inherently evil tendencies.

There was a time in my life where it was a bad time, but, it was also a good time. I was trying to play games at my old school, Roosevelt Junior High School.

I always heard his stories and how they treated him well and going to the school actually saved his life. There was not much food on the reserves and when bad winters came many people froze to death, so when he went to the school he got food, a warm place to live, and education which he wouldn 't have gotten otherwise and another language which helped him out later in life. I think educating students of residential schools is a good thing but the problem is we only ever learn one side of the story. We learn over and over again how horrible they were and all the children that died, We never hear stories from survivors who had a good experience or about the schools that treated the students good. So how I want to help with reconciliation is to make sure people know these schools were not all bad for everyone.
