One of my sources is “Youth Transitioning Out Of Foster Care: An Evaluation Of A Supplemental Security Income Policy Change.” The main idea of this source is the money side of things when it comes to youths aging out of the system. This shows that only few people can apply for money. It is for people with disabilities and it is still very difficult for them to get the money. In other words, most of the children that age out are left with no money and nothing to help them survive the worst outcomes. I will use this source to prove that these people are left with nothing. They aren’t given anything to help them survive even though they are already not given a home. They have no money to stay warm or nourished.
One of my sources is the NPR broadcast of After 20 Years, “Young Man Leaves Foster Care On His Own Terms.” The main idea of this is what really happens in foster care. It talks about the real way that he was treated. He wasn’t treated very well inside and outside of the system. He didn’t feel loved by anyone. He was ready to leave to get away from the people that had treated him poorly all of those years that he was in the foster care system. He was also scared because he didn’t know what it would be like in the real world. I will use this source to show a real experience of what it was like for him while he was in foster care, as well as what is going to happen as he ages out of the system into having to care for himself with no help
One of my sources is called, “On Their Own: What Happens To Kids When They Age Out Of The Foster Care System.” The main idea of this source is what the process is when it comes time for the person to age out of the foster system. It shows that there is nothing given to the person. They aren’t supported in any way. They have to try to make sure that they aren’t getting into any trouble even though they weren’t necessarily taught better. This also shows that these people are likely to drop out of high school as soon as the become of age to age out because they don’t have anyone to support them to finish their homework and to do well in school. I will use this to prove that they aren’t given anything and because of that, they don’t succeed and are seen as disposable.
One of my sources is called “Addressing The Health Needs Of Adolescents Transitioning Out Of Foster Care.” The main idea is how the people get health care needs and how they are supported until the time of them having to age out. I think this information will help me a lot because it talks about how little health care is actually given to the people who age out. They are left with nothing. They don’t get much health care and it is still expensive. This source shows that it is very hard to get help financially and medically once you have aged out. This article also shows evidence that they are seen as disposable because of the main point of it being that foster children who have aged out don’t get very much support.
One of my sources is called, “Transition From Care: Status And Outcomes Of Youth Who Age Out Of Foster Care.” The main idea that the author is giving, is that foster children that age out of the system have no money and no support making it extremely hard to live in the world with nobody to love them. I think this information will help me complete this paper, because it gives reasoning that these people may be seen as disposable simply because of the laws of the people who age out of the foster system. Also, this shows how the foster children aren’t able to have stable environments because nobody is willing to love and take care of these kids.
This is the post excerpt.
People who are seen as disposable are seen to be used and then gotten rid of. When people use them, it’s not the kind of use that you would want. These people are being used for things that don’t matter to people. We live in a society of disposability, we don’t use peoples opinions the way that we use peoples that agree with us. We only want our opinion to matter and to be used. In the movie Hotel Rwanda, you can see that some people are being seen as disposable. I thought that even Paul was seen as disposable to a few of the people such as, the people that are only helping him a little bit simply because Paul was bribing them with money, alcohol, and expensive belongings of him and the people in the hotel.
The movie was very interesting to me, because I had never heard about that time in history and it was interesting to learn about an event that is important because we don’t want that kind of thing to ever happen again. This movie demonstrates why we shouldn’t let this kind of thing happen again by showing the bad things that happened, including death and brutality to people who didn’t deserve it. The people were left to fend for themselves because they weren’t worth it. They weren’t worth having anybody give their lives up simply because they were from the area, making them Hutus and Tootsies.
It is hard to understand why these people wanted to hurt children and innocent people. People died even if they weren’t apart of the main situation simply because of their titles as Hutus and Tootsies. The two groups of people could have worked something out however, the Hutus had been through a lot with the Tootsies being the favored ones because they looked the most European. I think that all of these people at one time had been seen as disposable. I think the Hutus were seen as disposable because the Tootsies were chosen over them. I also think the Tootsies were seen as disposable after the fact, because they had been treated so greatly before. They were now seen as disposable because the Hutus thought that they should have killed all the Tootsies so that they could be treated fairly again.
All in all, a lot of people are seen as disposable. Whether it is in the past or in the present. People’s opinions won’t matter to us if we want it to be what we want. That alone shows disposability because it is throwing someone’s opinion out and completely ignoring what that person has to say.
