My review of institutionalization.

In The Shawshank Redemption, the old librarian 'old boo' had been
imprisoned most of his life but suddenly have released to ''freedom''.
Meanwhile, he get lost in the ''freedom world'', and wanted to return the place which have deprival his life but he had been used to.Lastly,
he suicide. And then Morgan Freeman express his feeling of the word'institutionalization'. He describe that prison is an example of
institutionalization.''First you hate it,because it deprival your freedom.
And then you get use to it and be familiar with it. Last, you can't leave it,
just like old boo.??
I believe a lot of us, especially someone have been worked under
institutionalization for many years. The place we called 'flat' or
'department' is also a place of institutionalization, is also a prison. But most of us just sink of institutionalization at last. Only very few peoples can act like Andy, who has a strong will and the spirit of 'freedom never die'. By using his perseverance and wisdom, Andy do a lot if things other people can't do, such as make beer for inmates, built the library in prison, but also escape from prison ,escape from institutionalization and live freedom.
In my opinion, life is a process of get over institutionalization, this institutionalization is not only the 'flat' we serve, but also
is the nemerous 'prison' inside our heart.
