“Lives of the Dead” is a short story written by Tim O'brien. In the story he writes many important life lessons about death and the death of people cared about by the narrator. O’brien writes in a way that makes sense to people and makes people understand a little bit more about what death may be like. Because nobody actually knows what death is like, a lot of people get interested by it, he writes about it in a way that seems like it wouldn’t be scary to be dead as long as the people are remembered. “Lives of the dead” teaches that it’s ok to grieve, because stories can save people and when people are dead there almost dreamlike, it teaches about what it's like to lose a loved one, and it teaches about holding onto hope.

Not only does war affect the companions of those lost, but it much more directly affects families.
