That Was Then This Is Now


Violence can effect those who arent involved

violence can effect people whether they are involved in a situation or not. My thoughts on violence is that it can effect you and the people around you. it can damage friendships and hurt people physically and mentally. you don't realize the damage that's done until the crime is committed. In my personal life my uncle is an alcoholic and abusive to others. He attempted to strangle my aunt to death and almost killed her. My uncle is my moms brother so we are pretty close with him. Just from that one action he did it affected me, my mom, my dad , my two sisters, my grandma , my grandpa , and my 2 aunts. That's 9 people. When national worldwide violence happens it can effect millions of people. In That Was Then This Is Now Mark and Bryon get into trouble for hustling and get into a a fight behind the bar that Charlie works at. When Charlie hears about it he comes out the back door to defend Mark and Bryon and ends up getting shot. That action of violence between Mark and Bryon effected Charlie and eveyrone who knew him. Violence is dangerous and can hurt more poeple than damaged.
