Sociopaths, often described as having antisocial personality disorder, are not born with their traits but their experiences they go through make them the way they are. Perry Smith has many examples of how his upbringing has made him the way he is. Perry’s life was filled with violence and neglect. Perry had a seemingly happy life until his dad started to beat his mother and she turned to drunkenness and promiscuity. Finally perry’s parents split, which can also to lead to problems in children's lives, he travels with his mother and siblings to san Francisco where he constantly gets in trouble to which he blames it on having, “no rule or discipline, or anyone to show me right from wrong" (54).
In the East Harlem community, many people devalued the severity of diabetes due to personal aspects. For example, one woman said how her life is too stressful to worry about the illness.

Diabetes adds to this stress because residents voiced that the out of control sugar levels made them more stressed.
All three families have more than one child and could barely afford to pay their bills and purchase food for their household.

Homeless are often set up for failure by these things so they end up getting into trouble and in jail by not being able to pay for such unreasonable things. Police are already viewed pretty negatively by the homeless and by doing this it just adds to the negativity. So, homeless become even more less susceptible to come to the police for help. Homeless that fining effects are often put in a position where they have no place to go because shelters are either to fall or too violent and sleeping in your car or the streets is criminalized. To conclude I think this solution to getting homeless off the street is moving in the opposite direction.

Many display chronic physical symptoms, presumably somatic, and attribute it to the long-term effect of the disappearance. A number of wives of missing persons face extreme stigmatization in their homes that has led to their being rejected by their in-laws, leaving voluntarily or continuing to live there in terrible conditions (Robins, 2006). Having a missing relative makes a family poorer. A minority of households faces challenges in feeding their families, and a small number of households with no economically active member have no alternative but to beg for food (Zia, 2009). Families articulate their economic needs in terms of what they cannot afford, and for most this prioritizes food, education and health care (Dabla, 2012).
Blanche is in dire need for help more than anybody in the play. “Why that you had to live in these conditions.” (Williams 10) Stella take’s blanche into her home , and within the first few moments she acts as if she is a queen; who needs to be in a palace when in actuality she is homeless. From Blanche being an arithmetic teacher, then being fired by the principal for having sexual relations with a underage student, and then not only having to prostitute to make money in the hotel called The Flamingo; the following being homeless come as a surprise when she is not humbled by the fact that many aspects in her life have went bad for her; and she should just be grateful for her sister. Stella is willingly giving her a place to stay; rent free, just out of compassion, but still receives backlash From Blanche for not staying in a house not worthy of Blanche 's expectations. Blanche’s ability to judge without taking a step back and evaluate her own situation, proves how desperate she is.
In the years when Christina Rosetti was alive and writing poems, a “fallen woman” was someone that was either seduced or raped if she left the house without an escort or stayed out past dark. These women were outcasted from communities, they were unable to marry, and they were unable to move towns. This idea is close to Christina’s heart because she was an active volunteer at a home for fallen women. Obviously, it can be understood how different the times are because today we would be calling these women victims, and consoling them, not punishing them. So, the difference in culture and ideology really need to be taken into consideration before thoroughly analyzing the poem; otherwise, it would not make sense to the
Homelessness in baltimore is extremely sad and pitiful. Many people are homeless due to the fact they might have lost their job or they don’t have enough funds to provide for their family and pay for an adequate home.

A man on the street, sitting on the landing in front of a business, a woman on the side of the street begging for a job, meanwhile her family is sleeping in their car, an individual standing by the interstate hoping for a ride - all these images may represent many thoughts of homelessness. Stereotypes. Society places so many stereotypes for the homeless because individuals placed in these difficult situations do not measure up to society 's idea of success. The homeless population often faces stereotypes placed on them without people even knowing the circumstances or situations. Often no one knows how fortunate he or she is until something bad happens to put life into perspective.
Homelessness is one the most ignored problems in the United States with citizen and politician. Homeless people are walked by and ignored. Nobody ever thinks that they will be homeless.

We see them as a crowd, we call them the homeless, as if it tells who they are. What most forget is that they are also people.
