Touching Spirit Bear, Chapter 6

"I do know this: Cole isn't the only problem here tonight. He is only a symptom of a family and a community that has somehow broken down. If we can't find solutions, we all fail, we all share the gilt, and we all pay a terrible price."
(P:49)

This is a powerful quote because its true what if all of us had as much pain in our lives as Cole how would you react? Would you commit crimes just so your parents would acknowledge you or would you cry for help from the police. Would you run away and live onn the streets?

Skepticism: [ Noun ] Attitude or temper(P 56) His voice edged with skepticism.
