Father Gregory Boyle in his office
Chapter 2: The name and theme of this chapter is dis-grace. It is called disgrace because many of the homeboys Greg worked with lived with ,as Father G says,"a palpable sense of disgrace strapped on to the back of homies like an oxygen tank". Many of the homies lived with disgrace and did not try to do anything about it. My favorite story was about Speedy and how he changed his life after constantly being in trouble. Speedy used to walk into enemy territory and aggravate them purposefully, but he wanted to change and he did. Speedy saw and knew he was a disgrace but decided to change and now he has three kids. This relates to my life because I feel like a disgrace sometimes but I know that somebody, especially God, does love me.
