From tear gassing, to the utmost physical abuse, juveniles were tortured and it led to the children wanting to commit suicide in these harsh conditions. Such brutality was a shocking insight to me. I was in disbelief that in our own country this kind of treatment once went on and nothing was done about it for quite some time. Without such investigations that have taken place by Kenneth Wooden, one can only wonder about if such treatment would still go on and if it is even possible that it happens today. With fear being invested into the minds of juveniles, it can be very easy to control them and have underground extreme policies going on regarding abuse.
His necessities as a young boy were replaced by his situation as a criminal, causing him to be more hurt as a child and to more likely follow in criminal behavior. And of corse this only led to Trevino committing cumulative crimes, each time the crime standing more boldly in comparison to his initial circumstances as a child. When it finally came time for his trial, all of George’s contributions and achievements were never heard, the only thing that played any role in his trial was his criminal record, which is sad to see. The initial problem is that judging the crimes committed as opposed to the boy himself, drives the system closer towards punishment as opposed to rehabilitation. When the child’s needs are not considered nor acknowledged, a personalized treatment cannot be appointed.
Criminal Record can affect ones future in many ways, ways you wouldn’t even think of. I have done some research. If you are a convicted felon, it is sad to say that you will have great difficulty finding a job that will hire you. I mean, if you were the boss of a management, would you want a felon working for you? I wouldn’t.
Forgiving someone or yourself might take time but it can easily occur. It can take time because the crime that has been committed might to be too large or that it has left emotional damage. Kody had many opportunities were he needed and wanted forgiveness from his mother for all the wrongs he had done, he needed it from Tamu for abandoning her at the birth of their daughter, but most of all he needed to forgive himself. Everyone has his or her own way of showing forgiveness. “[Monster] changed [his] name while [he] was a prisoner.
I made a mistake and from this tragic accident it has made me a better and stronger person, we all make mistakes, and we all learn from them and have to suffer the consequences. All though I am a man on the outside I am also a trapped teenager with thoughts and feelings that I cannot erase for the rest of my life. I am writing, explaining that I am trying to understand your pain and so that your family understands my pain. How ever I am not writing this letter as a sign of weakness but instead evolving and trying to become what I never was as a man or a boy. Daniel
Addiction Simulation Exercise This exercise made me realize how hard it really is for addicts to hide their addictions. It was very hard to hide this from my friends since I hang out with them the most. I felt scared that they would think of me differently and judge me, if they knew i was an addict. At first it didnt bother me if i didnt have it, but as the time went on, i felt like i had to have it with every dring because other wise it didnt tast the same. I felt like i couldnt enjoy the drinks the same way withought the ice cubes.
Many people don’t come out healed; they come out different. No one wants to suffer. But we all do at some time. When I read the article “what suffering does” by David Brooks, made me understand that even though people always look for happiness, but feel formed through suffering. We suffer, and people suffer around us, in so many different ways.
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 have read some interviews from other SANEs online and many of them admit that it is a very stressful job. It is emotionally draining and dealing with the patients can at times be frustrating when they will not cooperate, but at the end of the day it is so rewarding knowing that you are helping to put a criminal in jail. I understand that there is a lot that will go into getting my degree and certifications and I am prepared to take on that challenge. I also know that when I begin working I will have to deal with some pretty terrifying stories of assault, I will be a part of the patient’s support system, I will have to be very knowledgeable about the sexual assault laws in each state I work in, I will have to be able to develop a plan to keep the patient safe, and still manage to do all of the paperwork and tend to my other patients in the emergency room. It has always been my passion to help others in need.
I can relate to the “bad student”, and it wasn’t a good feeling knowing that you were treated as such. But there’s always hope, you just have to believe in yourself and that’s when you start noticing some changes in your life. It wasn’t until I reached my 2nd year of college that I had to make a drastic change in my habits. All these years of being a bad student finally clicked with me. There came a point in my life where if I wasn’t doing anything for myself, than I would I see myself being locked up or homeless in the future and I wasn’t going to let that happen to myself, and if I wanted to become successful in pursuing my education than I would have to become that “good
