Crummey uses this symbol for Sandy and Georgie to describe their emotional state. Sandy’s reoccurring dream is of himself drowning as a teenager. “It sometimes seems to Sandy as if he’s lived all his days on that ice field” (268) because he constantly lives in a state of anxiety and fear about looking emotional and weak. This results in a communication breakdown and Georgie is contemplating leaving her husband and “how numb she had become, as if she had spent a decade submerged in frigid water”(p.266). Crummey uses the symbol of drowning to emphasize Georgies emotional distance.

Noah and Jude hardly talked and their Father was always going out for walks, "clearing his head." The Mother's death was sudden and unexpected, as she was killed in a car accident, which was another big factor that caused the twins to lose touch, as neither of them were expecting it in any way. I know that if I experienced something so sudden and life changing like that, it would affect me dramatically, maybe even causing me to shut people out, like Jude and Noah did to most people. The guilt that ensued after the Mum's death also majorly affected the twins. Each thought that they had caused their Mums death in different ways, whether it was something they said or something they did the last time they saw her.
As the old man quietly wept, the boy was yelling: If you don’t stop crying instantly, I will no longer bring you bread. Understood? (pg 63)” This boy like Elie lost his childhood too early and became cruel and evil through the horrors of the camps. Anne Frank, Jeanne Wakatsuki, and Elie Wiesel, all face different struggles as they were coming of age in the war and though different drastically, we can see how they all dealt with it and what it did to their lives.

Families articulate their economic needs in terms of what they cannot afford, and for most this prioritizes food, education and health care (Dabla, 2012).
Neglect is a destructive matter occurring in today’s society. Neglect can be defined as when someone is or feels unloved or abandoned.
