Although Marie has a serious cold, she also uses her weak voice to protest being checked by Uncle Hayden alone. From these few words, readers can feel the intense fear and panic from Marie and know that Uncle Hayden is an indecent rapist. Besides, by the end of Chapter 1, I really confuse about the Mr. Hayden`s attitude. After David`s mother tells this father all the things, he waits for his father to explode, but, instead, his father said as quietly as before: “Why are you telling me this?” (36:4). Although I know that Dr. Hayden is David`s father`s brother, I consider that in front of justice and brother`s relationship, I will prefer to choose justice.

“He's an animal! No he's worse! Not even animals rape and kill their own kind!” This made me angry because everyone deserves to be treated as a human even if they have committed a crime because they are still human and no crime committed can change that. “Dead Man Walking” also made me feel sad because I know it's hard for parents to lose their children and we see how painful it is for Matthew's mother to deal with the fact that Matthew is going to be killed when the court announces that Matthew will be executed as originally planned and she breaks down and starts crying. This reminds me of the time my dad told me how my cousin was killed by a drunk driver, I can not even begin to imagining how painful it must have been for my aunt and uncle to lose their son that day.

But if surviving family members do not agree on the death penalty? Kathy Garcia an expert on traumatic grief whose nephew was murdered and who founded the Center for Traumatic Grief addresses this problem “When family members have differing views on capital punishment, the introduction of the possibility of a capital charge can split family members at the very time they need each other most. I know families who still do not speak to each other because of the wedge driven between them by fighting over that choice.” Families can be ruined in the time where family is most important. Like the public families have different thoughts on the death penalty dad says yes on the sentence mom says no when dealing with someone life is a very serious choice.
