She was born different and no one really understood. Some people need a little more help and few people are willing to help them; Like George helps Lennie or Maria and her family. Lennie for example never really could understand his mistakes, like petting a poor animal to its death. Which in fact, eventually lead George to shoot him in the head to put him out of his misery - and not to suffer. People are slow to change, Lennie’s friends didn 't understand
