In “The Colour Purple” death and loss is shown when both Celie’s children are taken away from her at birth and is given the impression that they where killed. Bullying occurs the day you are born by society determining colours, interest and behaviours that suit the type of gender you are. However bullying doesn’t really show it’s self until we go to school, this style of bullying can be verbal, physical or electronic.
Khyra Isheq A girl of seven who was allowed to die by a failed Social Services Khyra Isheq was beaten with a cane and was allowed to starve and eventually die a slow and painful death by her mother Angela Gordon and her step father Junaid Abuhamza. This happened to Khyra even though she was being monitored and visited by at least nine Social Workers, Teachers, Education Officers and even the Police.

Instead she would just lay with her daughter until she was finally able to throw the baby overboard but “quickly after that she jumped in too” (Danticat 26). Célianne seemed to feel that if she couldn’t have her daughter, she shouldn’t live either. This shows that as a mother the bond with your child is so strong that you would do anything for them.

However; my sister’s neighbor was referred for special needs because the father and mother were having family problems, and I believe that these problems affected their children. The couple recently divorced and one of the girls had trouble learning and talking. So the social worker went to my sister house and asks her if she had seen any kind of child abuse?
She acts very much like a teenager. All here body language and attitude is that of an early adolescent girl. She is less than concerned with the events that are happening around here but with the perceived attitudes and her personal sense of justice. Her mother likely murdered her father when she was about 13 which she, as an abuse victim could have taken some solace in but instead takes her father’s side and lashes out towards her mother. She is consistently unaware and uncaring in regards to the emotions and situations around her.
