I have chosen to make a drawing on a question frequently repeated over and over again. People are constantly referring to the fact that the prisoners eat very little food. They are served a very small amount every meal which may lead up to one meal for our daily population here in Brasil. students keep saying how it is unfair that the people who have done wrong are being punished. I know it may be a little bit extreme that their food gets cut short, but come on. These people have done wrong and bad things to others and themselves. They are in prison for what, a holiday? No, they are in prison for realizing what they have done wrong. Here is a picture comparing what they would eat back then in Siberian Labor camp, and now:
Food for these people are more important than anything. Most of them depend on the food they are going to get for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. If they get all these meals. The prisoners are constantly thinking about how much, when, or what they will get for there meals. When Alexander Solzhenitsyn writes about the idea of food, it shows with words how much of a problem it is. He explains how hard it is to survive without a sufficient amount of food, comparing to the work they do day by day.
