Also some people are just unlucky, because the country they live might have a lot of tornadoes. A tornado is a dangerous rotating column of air, extending from a thunderstorm to the ground. You need warm air and cool air to form a tornado, then they make a change in wind direction and increase the wind speed. The wind rotates from horizontal to vertical which then creates a tornado. (Weather wiz kids) Damage paths can be found in excess of one mile wide and 50 miles long.
That what happened when the war hit. Looking around at this time, homes were shattered and smashed inside out, the concrete had blood stains on it and bullet shots where the bullets missed. The sky was grey and filled with smoke, you would walk around coughing everywhere you go. We were living in a black and white world because everything with color was destroyed and the sun doesn’t even hit this place anymore. It was like a movie scene after a war, but instead, it was happening right in front of our eyes and was flipping and destroying everything that we have worked for around here.
The tornado warnings were on TV. The wind was picking up, and the lightning bolts started flashing. There were great rolls of thunder. The house was shaking and the trash was blowing away outside. Then our family had to go through something we had never experienced before.
As a proof of her being a good mother, the children grow and mature well as time passes.

These characteristics of Calpurnia successfully filled the absence of their mother to Jem and Scout. One pleasant memory that Scout had, appeared when Calpurnia treated her a special meal.

Then beginning on May 9th 1934 a strong two day dust storm removed massive amounts of Great Plains top soil in one of the worst storms of the Dust Bowl.

My parents thought I was, for the most part, a “good girl.” They thought this because I went to school, I got good grades, I did what was asked of me at home, and I had many part-time jobs around our neighborhood so on the surface it appeared that I and they were doing all the right things. Unfortunately, because I almost never gave them a reason to question me, I did things that should have been questioned. I did not actively participate in things that were against the law, but I was witness to many of my peers doing so. My parents had always said that I had to be sixteen to date, but when I brought home a boyfriend at fifteen they agreed that we could date each other, because of the how well I had handled the mature decisions before that. I must say now that I was not mature enough to handle that because I also chose to have sex at fifteen years old and I was not mature enough to handle the emotions or consequences of that choice.

As a teen, I heard a conference speaker who urged parents to tell their kids "yes" consistently so when they needed to say "no", their kids were able to respect them and accept their "no" answers much easier. I truly appreciate this advice and I believe our relationships with our daughters greatly benefited because my husband and I practiced this as often as possible. It was exciting to hear Rebecca Hagelin encouraging parents to try this! If you can take an hour to listen to these broadcasts or to read Rebecca 's book, I believe you 'll
But then not necessarily willingly Jolly ends up in the Moms Up Program at LaVaughn 's high school due to LaVaughn. She talked to 'Barbara ' and found out how to involve Jolly in it. It 's a program for teens like Jolly to be able to go back to school and get a GED. Rules of being in the program, though, are beneficial.

Jolly got a B one day and then three more B’s then she did A work in typing” (121).
