One piece of evidence to support my claim/theme is, according to 2BR02B, by Kurt Vonnegut, it states, “The law said that no newborn child could survive unless the parents of the child could find someone who would volunteer to die. Triplets, if they were all to live, called for three volunteers.” This evidence supports my claim/theme which is life isn't always happy and amazing because how would you feel if you had to die for a baby you didn't even know and they didn't even know you? If no one dies for the baby, then the baby has to die and they can't even experience life. So, either way someone still has to die, the newborn or a volunteer.
The story, “2BR02B” by Kurt Vonnegut tells the story of a world where there is controlled population, old aged and diseases were overcome, and the world was seemingly positive. In this place humans call their home, certain people volunteer to ie, and the population continued to stay controlled. The Wehling family are expecting three triplets, but they must need to find 3 people to sacrifice. Dr.Hitz, Leora Duncan, and the father of the newborn children are killed, with the painter creating an amazing mural willing to be killed after seeing all the deaths unfold. This leads to the question, is the world really worth sacrificing yourself for others?
The hand on Georgiana’s cheek is a symbol for the sins of this world. Even Aylmer states that, “as being the visible mark of earthly imperfection.” I personally think Georgiana knows that she will die in order for Aylmer to remove the Birth Mark. That is why she keeps putting the surgery off. Rosenberg explains, “Aylmer never truly sees his wife; even when she is dying, he misperceives the true import of her symptoms. (147) At the end of the story, Aylmer accomplishes the surgical procedure of removing the birth mark; however, it killed his wife in the process.
One piece of evidence that supports this claim is from “Ohio Man’s Shooting Of Ailing Wife Raises Questions About ‘Mercy Killings.” One quote is “...meant only to end the suffering of his wife, Barbara, 65.” This relates to Of Mice and Men because she was going to die anyway and he wanted to end her suffering. This is exactly what George wanted for Lennie. If he didn’t kill him Curley would’ve killed him and then he would’ve died without dignity. There are two reasons Curley wants to kill Lennie. The first reason is because he is a big guy, and Curley hates big guys.
The sound of a weapon that snatches the life of an innocent person. The worry of a mother to knows that his son will not return home. The tears of the children when they saw how the soldiers killed other people mercilessly. It would be better if we decide to change the racial hatred for the compression, the luxuries for humility, the missiles for helping the people who live in poverty. All these terrible things we can prevent by means of a passive dialogue.
Romeo believes this and drinks poison to be with her.Juliet wakes to find Romeo dead and kills herself with his dagger. We see what can happen in all of these situations.

The gunshot was part of a shooting with his son and Harrison collapses to his death. This proves that the character is defeated by the establishment and the power of the establishment was too much for a single man to handle by himself. In addition, not one of his parents are able to fully remember him because they easily lose their train of thought either with the ear transmitter or not. The dystopian society in “Harrison Bergeron” can convince readers that there really is no such thing as being equal and we all should be proud to have our own unique styles and
All of the boys are between the ages of seven and ten, and so they were considered unable to earn anything of worth for the family. The parents decide to abandon them because they are unable to feed them. This is the story where the hunger of the family is given as the entire reasoning for abandoning the children. The different part of this is that the children found their way home. The parents had been given money, and were then able to feed the entire family for a while.
The world that they are living by is very stabilized. This is where having population control comes in. In order to have a baby to be born, a person living in the United States has to die. In this case, triplets were born and the parents only had one volunteer, which meant one baby could live. 2BRO2B
