In the articles, we see a multitude of violence. The article “I See Everything Through This Tragedy” shows us the effect violence has on everyone involved. Mr. Orange is torn up inside due to his inward thought that he was able to do nothing to help his grandson. Those kinds of thoughts and others don’t allow people to get back to their regular routine of things for a long time if ever. It is something that sticks with them forever as the author reminds us.
I agree that someone must reach out to those involved with the violence. The people doing and those being victimized need a helping hand to be extended to them. Furthermore, we see the violence overseas in Syria. I don’t want to say we should ignore this, but we need to focus on our own internal violence first. That way other countries can see our example of peace when we go into help them. Kotlowitz says,”They stop talking. They experience flashbacks. They wilt under the dark skies.” Someone must help these people. Not long after the traumatic experience, I believe most people forget they are still experiencing extremely hard times. We must do something to combat this and then show it to other countries.
