Uniforms reduce gang violence because gang members would be unable to show their colors while in school, which makes it harder for them to identify one another. Case studies of the effects of uniforms on gang violence have provided support for this claim. In the 1990’s a case study in Long Beach, California showed that instituting a uniform policy greatly reduced violence and crime, with the crime rate dropping by 91%. In addition, Chicago school officials found a drop in g¬¬¬ang violence after the integration of uniforms in their school systems. Uniforms would also lead to a drop in theft of valuable clothing items because students would have fewer opportunities to steal things such as designer clothing or expensive shoes and accessories.

Though school uniforms may take away from an individual’s creativity when dressing themselves, they will help rule out bullying because of one’s clothing style. School uniforms are cheaper and they can provide unity among school children as well as teachers. School uniforms can stop the battle of what to wear in the morning which will also get children to school on time.

This quote illustrates Morrie's views of love and is of the opinion that it is better to die than to live a life devoid of love. Although Morrie grew up without much love in his life, it was for this reason why he emphasized the importance of love and family.

Uniforms in our Public Schools School Uniforms are a logical choice for the public school venue. Uniforms prevent students from a lower income background to be singled out for poorly made or cheap clothing, prevents use of gang colors, allows for certain safety measures, and allows teachers to form impressions of students based on actions and work rather than dress code choices.

This murder was more of a private revenge than of protection but the character’s act was partially motivated by his wish to protect his wife who suffered every time she encounters their son’s murderer ( & , 2000, ).

While it is obviously too late to protect his son, Fowler experiences his son’s murder as an assault on his fatherhood and on his wish to protect his children.
Woolf describes Mr. Ramsay as insensitive, malicious, and brutal toward his family, but he also desires happiness and wants the best for his family. Although Mr. Ramsay often scolds and mentally abuses Mrs. Ramsay, all he wants is love and affection from his wife. For example, when Mrs. Ramsay lies to James about the next day's weather, "There wasn't the slightest chance that we could go to the lighthouse tomorrow" (31). This comment shows that, if Mr. Ramsay doesn't want to do something, they are not going to do it. During the same conversation Mr. Ramsay say something that he would later realize he shouldn't of said.
This implies that he was weak - willed and usually unable to think of much beyond his immediate material comfort. He also allows Dunstan to blackmail him about his marriage. ““Well, Master Godfrey, what do you want with me?” said Dunsy in a mocking tone “Suppose, now, you get the money yourself, and save me the trouble, eh? …You’ll not refuse me the kindness to pay it back for me: it was the brotherly love made you do it, you know?”” This implies Dunsy is taking advantage over his brother and he also sounds like he is being sarcastic when he talks about brotherly love. Godfrey’s actions also back this idea up as he, “bit his lips and clenched his fist”.
