At this point in time my mother and I weren 't as close as we are now. When I thought I had hit my lowest point, I kept it to myself. I knew my mother already had her own issues and I didn 't believe what I was feeling was a big deal.

Many people identify closure as an end, a conclusion, or a resolution, when in fact it should be something that is understood, accepted, and lived with. In the chapter, “The Dew Breaker,” Anne, the wife of the dew breaker, still regrets the traumatic death of her brother at the hands of her own husband. She goes on to say, “There was no way to escape this dread anymore...this fright that the most important relationships of her life were always on the verge of being severed or lost, that the people closest to her were always disappearing...These spirits, they’d left her for good... leaving behind no corpse to bury, no trace of himself at all” (Danticat 242). This suggests that Anne may never be able to forgive her husband and obtain closure from her brother’s death. She knows that she has to live with the grief that she feels for the rest of her life because of the decision she made.

Before coming to Job Corps, I had days when I was so depressed, I just stop doing what was right and from that point on, the street was the only I saw myself.

I can honestly say my biggest mistake I made as youngster, was me giving up on school.
