Hello, my name is name is Amanda Bracey. I live in Columbus,OH with my cat L and my parents. I have one younger brother who was in the air force and is now living with friends. I work a full time job at Chase Bank as a Quality Analyst. I am studying to become a translator. One of fun facts about me is that I love to play video games, does not matter if its on PS3 or PC. I typically keep to myself or lost in a good book.
One of the more interesting facets of Chapter Two of Kozol's book was the more toward the
character Mother Martha. In this chapter it was learned that before she was priest, she was a lawyer. I just found more interesting was the driver for her becoming a priest was the fact that her younger brother died of AIDS.
The quote that I liked from the book was in reference to Mother Martha. "Tastelessly invasive journalist, local demagogues, and loan sharks and drug dealers in the neighborhood have also learned the risk of underestimating Mother Martha's strength of will. A man believed to have been selling drugs on St. Ann's Avenue who had a run-in with her told me, "I'll be honest you, Jonathan. She frightens me more than the cops do when she knows I wasn't straight with her."
