“Everyone makes mistakes in life but that doesn’t mean they have to pay for them the rest of their life. Sometimes good people make bad choices, it doesn’t mean they are bad. It means they 're human.” (Lovethispic) Second chances mean an opportunity to start over and come clean again. Second chances may not sound pleasant, but sometimes it pays off. In my opinion, I believe everyone deserves a second chance. I take that back, I think people only deserve a second chance if they are willing to work towards it. Say for example, someone did something really bad to her best friend and then they just walk away from it. Then I would not want to give them a second chance because the person is not willing to work toward it, they’re just walking away …show more content…
I think that is true, because in the beginning of the book Cole was a mean, cocky little boy. But at the end of the book he turns into being a good person. Plus, he’s wanting to help other people. Cole got a second chance to go back to the island once he was done healing from the previous accident that happened on the island. Cole changed drastically when he went to the island for the second time. All Cole needed is for people to encourage him, then he will do it all by himself, with a routine too. The island itself changed Cole a lot, now he is a better person and knows what 's right and what’s wrong. All together, Cole just needed that one second chance to change his life in a better way than what it was …show more content…
Lastly, if you are in a crime and get out, only some people will want a second chance and the change. Imagine someone was with a friend and that friend got in trouble with the police. Then they sent you to jail for being around that person and not stopping it. That would not be good so you would want a second chance and not hang out with that friend who put you in jail. Tia Torres gives second chances to people who committed crimes. The parolees could also learn from their mistakes if there are working for Tia too. She also gives second chances to the pitbulls, that need help in life. For instance an example could be, Pitbulls and Parolees. Tia the owner gives second chances to pitbulls especially because they 're the ones that need the most help because people think they are vicious dogs. But some of them aren’t. When the dogs are having a rough time the team goes out and rescues them, to give them second chances. Once they are all set with their health, then they are all set to be put up for adoption and hopefully the dogs will finally have a good home and a second chance in life. The rehabilitation and placement center is called Villalobos Rescue Center and that’s where the dogs live until they are better and this is where the parolee’s work.

Cole is already a very troubled kid with a lot of anger issues, attitude, and jail sentences, which, therefore, led him to beating up Peter Driscal and giving him a permanent injury. “Justice should heal not punish” is a quote by Garvey (Mikaelsen 13). Circle Justice is a wonderful opportunity for Cole to turn around and make his life better. If he goes to jail with love,
Cole’s attitude, relationships, and environment develop into positive counterbalances that help him overcome adversity. For starters, Cole’s attitude was a big counterbalance for him that helped him overcome hardships. In the beginning of the book Cole acts like he doesn’t care and
Once she tried to stop mr. Mathews, and he threatened to beat her too. When Cole comes back to then, he realises that he has gone nowhere. He is confused, nearly numb and freezing his butt off. He forgot to consider the low and high tide. When he returns back to the island, he decides to stay and consider some other way to escape.
Therefore, start to commit crimes again. But, if the correctional facilities provide women with programs to help them find a job, how to apply to jobs, how to write a resume, life skills classes, and job training can help women have a higher chance to not return to prison again. In the show, an inmate was given a chance to return into the community, but did not want to because she thought her life was going to be worse than it already is in prison. She felt that she was not ready to go back into the society (IMDb, 2017).
Harvey Mackay once said “Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.” If you are given an opportunity or a second chance you should take it and not worry about what the future will hold even if it changes your life, you should let it happen as Wes Moore and Dimmesdale did.
Because of his abrupt behavior, Cole has done many unintelligent things, such as burning his shelter on the island. His anger is his choice if Cole communicates by showing anger, isn’t he responsible for all of his actions? Cole has runined so many options of a better life that have come to him. It isn’t surprising that Cole wasn’t in support of the banishment process. In chapter 2, Cole started to search for an escape on the island, he loathed the shelter, the lonleyness, and the fact that he has no one to blame.
The obstacles he was faced with were tough but he progressed from the erstwhile adolescent to a supplementary rendering of himself. By overcoming adversity Cole augmented himself entirely just like when Chick Benetto comes back from his day with his mom in the book For One More Day. Before Chick sees his mom again, due to his alcohol addiction Chick loses his inducement to keep living; as a result he also losses he family. He promptly tries to commit suicide. Both getting in a car crash and jumping off a water tower do not kill him.
The quote talks about Cole getting last chances because he would get last chances. Because his dad payed the fine to get him out of jail. Or he would get lucky and not be sent to juvenile. He always get last chances but he now only has his last chance or he will be sent to prison. That is why he always got last chances.
The book starts with a delinquent named Cole who likes to get into trouble with things like robberies, bullying and possibly drugs and alcohol. The first bit of the book starts off with Cole bragging about robbing a store and then a boy named Peter Driscal tattles on him and Cole gives him a mean glare and says, “ You’re dead!”. Later that day Cole finds Peter and brutally beats him while others watch and try to stop Cole. As part of his punishment he is told he has two options; number one being jail and number two being circle justice and a banishment to an island off the coast of Alaska.

As I read the case study of Almeada and baby Anne, I was inspired by her case manager Barbra LaRosa, she provided social care and became the “bridge” between Almeade and the systems. One function of bridging is to narrow the gap between the services being offered and the needs of the individuals who are receiving those services. (Woodside, M. R. (2015). An Introduction to the Human Services, 8th Edition) Ms. LaRosa applied social care to Almeada while she was pregnant with baby Anne, she recognized Almeada's problems in living and since she worked at the school, and Almeada had not returned from summer break, she reached out to her to see what was going on and learn more about her life.
When Cole is on the island he decides the only way to help Peter was to bring him to the island and help Peter heal there.

Instead of getting angry and mad at Peter, he forgives him and makes Peter feel better about
Cole emphasizes in his lyrics that “life can’t be no fairytale, no once upon a time; but [he’ll] be God damned if a n***a don’t be tryin’”. Despite all the shortcomings of his city, that won’t stop Cole from trying to make something out of himself. In comparison, I always had to learn things the hard way, and I always failed at what I tried to achieve. However my mistakes never stopped from moving forward and I continue to overcome any obstacles that stand in my way. Living through the hard times motivates me to continuously work hard, and never settle for
In this journal, I want to reflect specifically on my experience at Dilley. Arriving to Dilley, I didn’t know exactly what to expect given all the uncertainty leading up to trip. Once Shay gave an overview of several cases that we would each be assigned, I felt better knowing that I could expend all my efforts into one case. When I found out that Jared and I were assigned to Marie’s case, I was a bit apprehensive because I knew how difficult and urgent this case was given her four prior denials. Once we organized as a group, it was frustrating trying to locate documents on the Innovative Law Lab system, especially since so many documents were either missing or mislabeled.
