How does a son tell his mom that he is not enjoying his life anymore and been having terrible thoughts the past 4 months and been trying to end that joyless life and failed in the subtle attempts, like water poisoning and malnutrition …I have been thinking about this since senior year and the last few months has been me trying to ruin what I have, like my school and my health so it will be that much easier in the end ….. I planned the 21 January as the day I was going to silence all the horrible thoughts and ideas that have been in my mind, like how I can’t accept myself as a boy who wants to be married one day and only sexually attracted to boys. And how I can’t be in a house where I’m always compared to everybody to be the best and to be perfect …I’M NOT. And being ranked in the family as the kid who is going far in life but no one knows that he is being pressured into being straight and perfect and smart and normal …..But everybody calls me weird, a spaz, and pushes me to do what they want ….And I don’t want to be labeled in this world as gay or a fag or be treated as a tool like being forced to try something you’re not supposed to or to take a big step like go to college when I tried to talked to you about my unhappiness not even 3 months before that decision …. I had the plan to take the gun from the cabinet and on that date end it when I left … but yesterday night when this was going through my head and I was finalizing the plan I started to cry when I thought that I…

The link between a broken home and delinquency are strongly believed. Much controversy resides in what is thought to be a broken home…

Having a broken home is an issue that creates a vicious cycle that affects not just…
Peace. Throughout the novel, the reader is shown the school life of a boy named Gene and his best friend Finny. The book begins with Gene returning to Devon, the boarding school he attended, after 15 years. Gene has a flashback to 1942, where he goes through every detail leading up to the death of Finny.

Crouched over the chutes, boys sit hour after hour, picking out the pieces of slate and other refuse from the coal as it rushes past to the washers. From the cramped position they have to assume, most of them become more/less deformed and bent-backed like old men. I observed the adult male co workers not giving any form of encouragement to help the exhausted boys get through the day. Using your hands and working with coal is hard, many accidents are bound to happen such as broken, cut, or crushed fingers…

Song-If I Were a Boy
By Beyonce Knowles
If I were a boy even just for a day
I'd roll out of bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted and go
Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I'd kick it with who I wanted
And I'd never get confronted for it
'Cause they stick up for me
If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I'd be a better man
I'd listen to her…
portrays a man and his young boy traveling south through a post-apocalyptic world. On the way, they meet several people, some show truly good natures, and some who are entirely evil. One of the themes McCarthy puts forth is that people, when facing a catastrophe, will resort to their evil nature, unless their main goal is to protect someone other than themselves.
Those who only care for themselves in The Road always resort to their inner evil nature. When Papa and the boy see the men in the truck,…
