This book has made me think about how some families live in the world. They go through tough times and still make it through it. Like when they had to “ Send the kids out to gather coals from the street fell out a truck” (Walls). I think that some families would do that in fact do anything to get what they need. I thought that the family was good except for some things like their fathers drinking problem and money. They could have made it fine and the father could have been still alive. They had dreams, but that made their life fun and have good times.
So my question is why didn’t I wait till I was married to lose my purity? The reason why I ask myself this question is because I really still wounder why couldn't I just wait until I was married to give that one guy my virginity? Why did I just do it with the guy I thought I was in love with him at the moment, and now I barely talk to him. I'm not saying I regret it because life is to short to regret anything. I just look at it as a lesson to be learned. But I just wish I would have waited longer. I know a lot of people look at sex like it's whatever.
