"The Destructors" tells the story of a gang of teens in England, after the war, who want to destruct an old man 's house. Throughout the story there were many conflicts between the two main characters Blackie and T. Through the influence of the main character ‘T’, the gang destroys an old man’s house, for no other reason than to destroy something beautiful. This can be viewed as disturbing, as it is not something most kids would spend their free time doing; which starts to give the idea that the story may be a depiction of something greater. Greene uses symbolism to show that the gangs meeting place as a bombed out parking lot is relevant because the place where they meet up is a site of destruction. Graham Greene’s short story, “The Destructors” utilizes symbols and conflict to display the theme of loss of innocence and power.

The abuse was so bad that when Gacy was molested by a family friend he suffered in silence. Gacy was so scared about what his father would do he chose to keep quiet. John Wayne Gacy was guilty of killing 33 people mostly teenage boys and burying them under his house. He got most of his victims by dressing up as pogo the clown. In conclusion I fully believe that that abuse and bullying have a lot to do with how a person reacts.
