"Gorilla, My Love" is the story of Hazel, a young girl who feels that adults do not treat children with respect and honesty. Narrating her own story, she tells of two incidents in which adults demonstrated their untrustworthiness. The purpose of the story is to depict how children can be taught to understand something more than mere mathematics, and how they can see some essential social phenomena.
In my opinion, I think no matter the situation, whether it is a hard truth or an easy one, parents should tell their children for them to stand by what is right. As individuals, being truthful means that we can grow and mature, learning from our mistakes. For society, truthfulness makes social bonds, and lying and hypocrisy break them. Children growing from a society where no matter how popular a person is, he would be told the truth when he is doing something wrong and this will make people trustworthy for standing for what’s right.
