How has Frankie's self-admitted need for "goodness" affected her decisions throughout her life? Do you feel her attitude is consistent with her upbringing? To what extent are we all products of our background?

We are all products of our upbringing and the beliefs/values instilled within us. As Frankie traveled and broadened her experiences, she did change some ideas. We can change negative learned concepts by being willing to listen, to learn and make the world a better place.

We are all products of our upbringing but as we get older and wiser we can make changes. Frankie did what many people do as they grow and gain more and more life experiences.
