A Summary Of Andrew Anderson's Case
December 28th 2013 at 7:30 on a Saturday morning, Andrew Anderson was shot and killed. The suspect behind the gun was Amanda jo Lucero. These two just so happen to be my cousins. Amanda jo and Andrew grew up together, they were practically brother and sister. My aunty beck raised the two and treatee Amanda like her own. You can imagine how hard it was for my aunty beck to hear her son was gone but hurt her even more to hear Amanda was responsible for Andrews death.
She was devastated when told the news. Her emotions were everywhere. She didn’t know what to think. She was mad at Amanda but sad for Andrew. She thought to herself “where did I go wrong” blaming herself for amandas actions. She held herself responsible because of how she raised

    Throughout the book ‘The Story of Tom Brennan’, each character deals with the tragedy in many different ways. Tom becomes depressed and begins to blame himself, he rejects that Dan, his older brother, has committed a crime and is sent to jail, ‘didn’t they realise we weren’t like everyone else here?’ (Page 134). Kylie, Tom’s younger sister, become rebellious and felt that everyone in their new town, Coghill, would have found out their secret eventually and it wasn’t fair to keep it hidden. ‘That was the thing about my sister, she’d become tough, like I didn’t know her anymore.’ (Page 29). ‘In many ways she’d released me, pushing me into my own fear.’ (Page 190). ‘In some ways, part of me almost admired her guts’ (Page 185). Tess, Tom’s mum, is affected by it the most; she refuses to accept that it’s happened and feels that her son has been ripped away from her. ‘“Well Tess,’ Kath started, “I’m sorry about that, but my son can’t even turn his neck to see his back.”’ (Page 155). She begins to live in denial and won’t talk about it. ‘Come on girlie, don’t be so self indulgent. Life goes on.’ (Page 4). Daniel becomes depressed and realises the consequences of his actions. “He’d been absolutely ripped to shreds. He didn’t sleep, eat, hardly spoke, never smiled. The only thing he did was cry.

    When she first hears of Eva Smith’s suicide her reaction is ‘Oh - how horrible!’ This is an immediate and genuine response to the suffering of another human being and from this we see she can be sympathetic towards those less fortunate than herself. This also emphasizes her innocence as she fails to understand how someone could drink a fatal disinfectant “by accident”, and shows she can’t imagine someone not having a lot to live for. She is also the first person to show a sense of responsibility as she understands that girls like Eva Smith “aren’t cheap labour - they’re people”. She responds to the girl as a person, not as “cheap labour” and criticizes her…

    Those many protests of the 1950s led to a larger civil rights movement a decade later. The Brown case was brought about by Oliver Brown, who argued that his daughter was forced to walk across a dangerous railroad each day rather than going to school close by, which was restricted to whites only. This was the time to attack the unfair doctrine of “separate but equal.” Segregation was said to be “inherently unequal since it stigmatized” one group of people as incapable to associate with the other group (Foner, Edition 4, Page 962). Black children received life-long damage because their self-esteem was undermined by segregation. After going back and forth arguing about this case, a decision was made that “separate but equal” no longer has a place…

    This text had an overall theme of loss. This is where I can relate personally to London the most as when she found out that Jonas had died, she felt guilty because she knew that as an older sister, her responsibility was to take care of her younger sibling. I understand these emotions because when my grandfather passed away, I had to deal with the idea of being guilty because I couldn’t help him or take his pain away, so when he died, it was as if a part of me died too. I also believe that this happens to a lot of people in today's society as when they experience this type of situation, they become unsure of how to deal with their feelings, ending up with blaming themselves for something they didn’t even do which could possibly result in deadly…

    Apart from physical stress responses, the existence of thinking errors shows that the stressors affects Amanda’s mind too. All-or-nothing thinking is one of them. She sees everything as an extreme and no middle ground. For example, she thinks she is good for nothing and her colleagues are all very demanding. Another thinking error is assuming the worst. She looks at the worst of the situation and pessimistically believes that there will be no good outcomes in the future. In her eyes, things will be out of control…
