Also her mother was always doing drugs. Therefore Marquese never got the love and attention from his mother. That is why when he want to go back to jail he felt that in prison people would give him this attention.
Life’s what you make it Can you imagine not being able to choose whether or not you want to be a part of a life filled with violence? Some people are just sucked into it because of choices other people make.

This meant finding a job was almost impossible for the other Wes Moore due to not having a high school diploma and a criminal record. This shows that the communities and environments of an individual greatly impacted their future and molded them into a certain character. During an interview between both Wes Moores, the author Wes Moore said, “Do you think that we are the products of our environments?” This shows that the author Wes Moore feels that there is some correlation between our environments and us.

Alonzo Harris, a veteran police officer with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), is training Jake Hoyt, a rookie officer on his first day with the narcotics unit. Harris’ character is an example of police officers’ potential for corruption.

When it comes to conflict I am more like my father. When I am introduced with conflict especially in the jobs that I have, I have to be calm and look at the entire situation as a whole.
“This is the story of two boys living in Baltimore with similar histories and an identical name: Wes Moore. One of us is free and has experienced things that he never even knew to dream about as a kid. The other will spend everyday until his death behind bars for an armed robbery that left a police officer and father of five dead. The chilling truth is that his story could have been mine.

One of the biggest negative effects rap music has is the promotion of drug sells and usage. The number of drug references in songs have increased almost 600 percent over recent years. A study showed that 69 percent of rap songs mentioned the use of drugs. It has become a trend in today’s music scene as almost every song makes some type of reference. As an effect of this teens are more likely to take part in drug activity because it has widely spread among the youth.
Because Wes had no boundaries for what he could do this led him down a criminal path of dealing drugs. He knew how the drug game worked “…the streets would get him that money back, and more”(page 74). Wes without any expectations, but to make money gets himself into trouble, and “getting arrested was starting to feel routine”(page 114).

The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates is a New York Times Bestseller by none other than, Wes Moore. This novel features an intriguing tale of two boys who grew up under the same circumstances, under the same names, and with the same chances; and yet one manages to become a Rhodes Scholar, decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader while the other grew up heisting and selling drugs until he received a life sentence for felony murder after shooting a police officer.
