The book begins with the two of them making their way to a ranch after being fired from their last job, which was working on a farm in the town of Weed. Lennie and George were forced to run from Weed because Lennie was being accused of a violent crime that he did not commit; however, during the Great Depression and especially in the West violence was widespread as people were frustrated and angry due to the lack of money, food, and very often, housing.

If you have an imagine of a evil vicious killer when you hear pit bull then you haven't met a real pitbull the ones they call killers are brainwashed to be like that. They were made to fight but all of the pitbulls i have been around are all super friendly and nice and wouldn't hurt anyone unless they were protecting them.

It's the hard truth but how much better would it be if you adopted that pitbull puppy and gave it the love it needs so it won't end up like the mean ones you see.

In my eyes it’s not an effective strategy to deport immigrants back to mexico. Profiling puts a large amount of pressure on Police officers who are told they need to do this to as part of their job. It also creates a lot of family breakdown with american citizens who are Hispanic, watch as their older illegal immigrants that brought them to the U.S, are being deported. How can we morally feel that this kind of practice is ok? “It was no accident that so many high school students protested the new law.
