A lot of American culture hast to do with violence. Everybody comes across violence either if it’s from someone being violent towards them, you being violent or on TV some of the top shows have a lot of violence in them. Americans love the violent TV shows because it’s mostly suspenseful. Also kid’s theses day have video game with a ton of violence in them. A lot of kids think that the violence in video games is cool so they might want to be like that. War is another big effaced because our TV networks are over there pretty much in the battles. Violence can change anybody it touches. Just like in the book sometime to be able to live you have to be violent. Ishmael has changed a lot because to be able to live he will have to be violent.

In the world there are about 1.6 million deaths due to violence that is around half the amount of deaths due to HIV/AIDS. Each year 3.5 to 7 million people in the age group from 15 to 29 get hospital treatment due to violence. A number of interventions have been shown to be promising and effective in reducing harm.


  1. I notice to that the amount of violence on television is very intense. The change violence has on Ishmael is scary.

  2. I completely agree with the fact that America culture has a lot to do with violence. You can't even turn on the tv without seeing violence. Violence does change us. It is overwhelming that there are more death from violence the HIV/AIDS.

  3. Violence has become too natural for the average person. Whether its on TV or a video game or displayed between your parents, kids see it everyday. Our next generation may have it worse than we have ever seen.
