  1.  Childhood events can shape who we become as adults. How are Wes and Raybe influenced and shaped by their childhood experiences?
  2. Both Wes and Raybe are victims of discrimination. Explain what message the authors are saying about the harmful effects of society’s discrimination of individuals.
