These themes are very common because a lot of people struggle with these issues. A lot of people deal with loss the same way as the daughter did. They regret the bad things they did to the person they lost, but are happy about the great memories they still have. It is very clearly shown that the daughter regrets certain things she has done to her father: “though many of my truths/must have grieved him/before the end”, but it also shown that she is grateful about the happy memories and that she misses the good times with him: “How I miss my father!/He cooked like a person/dancing/in a yoga meditation”. Through this the theme is clearly identifiable.
Le Guin’s philosophical short story “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” brings to light the unvarnished truth of how society’s success is fundamentally based on the unceasing sufferings of others in order for the greater majority to prosper. Similarly to how Kanye West says in his song “Take One for the Team,” “Your girl a queen, my girl a thing, you know what though, I’ma take this one for the team;” this can be related to the situation of the one suffering child in Omelas.

That guilt he felt at the end, the actions he took during, and the prevention he tried before all are the signature marks of a good person put under unbearable stress and in situations that no 10 year old should have to deal with. John Kessel said “Ender is at heart a pacifist. When Dink justifies Ender’s beating up Bonzo (Bonzo meant to kill Ender, Bonzo was a troublemaker, he had superior strength and size), Ender breaks down and cries. “I didn’t want to hurt him!” he insists. “Why didn’t he just leave me alone!”(p. 233) (p7) Nothing could be closer to the
The first and most prominent of Mr Chipping’s virtues was his strong fortitude. Fortitude is courage when faced with pain or adversity, and Chips displayed nothing less in the span of his life. When his wife and child both died, Chips was heartbroken and shaken to his core, yet he continued to teach at Brookfield and held back his grief. The new head of the school, Ralston, had unfairly insulted Mr. Chipping’s outdated teaching methods and put tremendous pressure on him to resign. Chips held out, and soon the rest of the school rallied to defend him.
For many people their family members were the ones that help them get through the hardest things in life. Deepak Chopra said, “If you want to do really important things in life and big things in life, you can 't do anything by yourself.
