Being raised up by Crane-man, his foster father, Tree-ear did not learn a lot about his real parents. Because of this, he will want to do anything to learn more about them.
He is then followed by regret. This shows that Elie was conflicted with himself as to what would ease his mind ; not being alone or not having to worry about anyone. Throughout the novel Night Elie entails the readers into what cruelty went on during the holocaust including most of his own accounts. He wants the world to know and never forget the genocide of 11 million innocent lives.

Most importantly, the people’s deep feeling attachment for the King now was changed into the feeling of being betrayed by their “father”. Tackett in his book examines the fact that the massacre at the Champ de Mars was as the consequence of the King’s flight. Furthermore, he shows that the King’s flight was psychologically catastrophic and the event broke the promise among Louis and his people. “It was one of those events with such a powerful emotional impact that people would remember all their lives where they had been and what they had been doing when they were first informed In this sense, the weeks following the flight to Varennes marked an anticipation, a prefiguration of both the psychology and the procedures of the Terror.” (pp.
This changes the feel of the scene immensely, as there is all eyes on the Walls family. Which makes it go onto a whole other level of bad parenting.

Jethro has been living with the consequences of his brothers actions; which led to an attack on his farm as well as his water supply being compromised. Due to the significant amount of hardship, I believe that the theme is lost of innocence. A defining moment in the theme loss of innocence is when Jethro changes his mind about war.

When the protagonist has entered adulthood, he faced with the atrocities of war. In “Now I Lay Me” he was desperately trying to stay alive and sane. There is also a very in-teresting dependence concerning changing attitudes towards death. In “Indian Camp”, Nick was convinced that he will never die.
At the age of only five years old, his parents “split up,” (Goobler 2) causing Tobias and his brother Geoffrey to be separated between the parents: Tobias with their mother (later along with his miserable stepfather) and Geoffrey with their father. This event was quite drastic for Tobias, and in hopes to escape his hard life, he “fabricated” (Woodruff 1) an application to a boarding school away from his family. This fake application was the first of many major lies Wolff committed in his life. His tendency to stretch the truth is noticeable in his works of literature, including “Hunters in the Snow.” For example, in the story mentioned there is a character named Tub who has an eating problem. He eats a large amount of food all during one period of time, but he lies about eating the food and even tries to convince his friends and family that he is on a “diet.” (168) This is only one example of the lies told in the story, but because Wolff wrote the character lying about something so small, it is evidence Wolff has the tendency to lie in his own

A fair amount of us have experienced many important moments in our lives and learned or changed because of them. How would you live your life after that? In the book Whirligig, the moment that changed Brent’s entire life was when he killed Lea. He would always live with the guilt of being a murderer, but he may be able to move on.

Brian Castner, a war veteran, a husband, and a father. He wrote the book The Long Walk on his psychologically damaging journey through blood, body parts, tears, bombs, death, and a foot in the box.
