My first piece of evidence is how Harry Potter has a hard life is because when he was a toddler his parents died. That would make Harry’s life hard because they were not there for Him.

What a tempting opportunity for any irresponsible leader of government! History and the headlines are loaded with such opportunities and the leaders who capitalize on them. Out of the weaknesses of individuals, governments justify and construct new warfare.

Have I feet still?... It is impossible I shall not see Kat again”, entirely destroyed by death of his sole remaining friend (Remarque 289). The extreme sadness faced by Remarque, inspired him to communicate to readers the strong brother-like bond between comrades, and the empty, hopeless feelings which accompany a death of a comrade which soldiers are supposed to simply except rather than grieve. Finally, the intentional actions of Remarque when composing the conclusion to his novel strongly portray his overall goal of communicating to his audience, that there are no true survivors of an atrocities such as World War 1, the severe psychological impacts on every soldier, including himself, are crushing and the weight of war was too much to bare by a young generation. Throughout the novel, a gradual deterioration of the narrator, Paul Baumer, is witnessed ending in his final welcome of death and the peace it brings, Remarque describes Paul in death to be laying “on the earth as though sleeping...almost glad the end had come,” as he had nothing else to truly live for (Remarque
