Most people go throughout life not expecting such tragedies to happen to them, but when it does, you suddenly become the person in the news. Further exploring the grief in death is the guilt and blame. Maddie focuses very much on what she could’ve done differently before Adam’s death. MADELINE: I never should have let him study in London. I never should have let him go so far from home.
I do not have any close friends any longer. In college, I had a few friends, but never really got to the point of “closeness” with them. I always felt that they would never accept me for me, especially if they knew that I came from a poor family and had a father that was serving a life sentence for beating my mother. Finding this out, I am sure that they would just assume that I was just as horrible of a person. If I had to choose one person that I am closest to, it would be my mother.
Dear, Elizabeth Proctor Elizabeth I am writing this letter because I don’t think I have completely explained my feeling and all the decisions I had made for our family. So word by world I would do my best to explain. For the last seven months, our relationship has been strained. I have been dishonest with you and unworthy, but the actions that I risked were for our family. I feel terrible guilt for what I have done.
Sociologically, grieving within families is not an easy task. Each family member reacts to death differently and forces family members to make changes in their lives in order to adjust to life without this family member. Raney and Charles had a hard time accepting the suicide of Uncle Nate. When Charles voiced his opinion that Uncle Nate was clearly depressed, obsessive-compulsive, and crippled from his life experiences, thus needing psychological help in order to heal, Raney took it as an insult. In Raney’s mind, Charles was placing blame on her, her family, and specifically, her mother who spent most of her time taking care of Uncle Nate.
“She is a part of a past that cannot be recovered or changed by anything I can do now. My father always told me that it was my birth that robbed her of her sanity. So as a child I had to carry the weight of my mother's madness as something that was my own doing.” (Davies 148) Paul had believed his whole life that Mary's insanity was caused by his birth, and once the truth came out, Paul was no longer guilty. The lift of guilt allowed him to feel again, something he was not able to do for a very long time. After the truth is learned about Mary
Child welfare law make itself be known threw out the public. You see I was the type that was afraid of my abuser so I never told until I got old enough till I knew even if he wanted to he couldn’t hurt me anymore. I feel like there are a lot of children out there like myself that’s why I wouldn’t mind being a speaker for kids in this situation that are waiting to be grown to fight back. I want them to know that child welfare is here to protect and serve people like us. I know how it feels to be beaten I would let them know that child welfare is a law that can

I was surprised at how aggravated I was when I was reading because Hal ad Claire didn’t believe her. Catherine kept this big secret from everyone and when she finally decides to open up and tell them they don’t believe her. I can relate to her and I can understand why she would be so hurt and storm off. I have personally been in many situations like this because all my life people have underestimated me. At one point in time in my life one of my teachers told me that I would never graduate or attend college and that I would most likely be knocked up before my junior year.
He also felt as if his father was hiding from him but I’d often tell John “your dad can hide from you, but he can’t hide from God.” I felt bad for john at times, but he didn’t have to live as a dwarf his whole life. Although I have both of my parents I sometimes wished that I could have a mother like Johns. She really cared about me yes I know my mother cares about me, but Johns mom goes to our games, she picks us up, and she gets involved in my school life. She even came to my house just to talk my parents into making me go to some stupid academy school. I guess you could say I somewhat had a crush on Mrs. Wheelwright which John was fully aware
