Going through out battle school, he realizes after the final simulation that he shouldn't have trusted Colonel Graff because he didn't tell him that the final simulation was real.

There is no legitimate reason to make anyone touch their own coffin, other to be cruel, mean, and spiteful. That was exactly what the narrator did, and if his brother would not touch it he was going to leave him there. At that point in the story Doodle did not know how to walk so he would not have been able to get down at all. The narrator is also needlessly cruel to Doodle when Hurst writes “The knowledge that Doodle’s and my plans had come to naught was bitter, and that streak of cruelty within me awakened. I ran as fast as I could, leaving him far behind with a wall of rain dividing us” (360).
But if you as a parent put your child down and make them feel bad for doing something wrong is where you mess up. No human is perfect so you shouldn’t expect a child to ace everything they do. That’s where Willie’s dad went wrong, he expected too much from him and when he got injured it’s like Willie’s dad’s dreams were ruined. That’s how the family slowly started falling apart, the father and son relationship wasn’t all that good to begin with and now that he’s injured really messed it for the both of

The conclusion of the book is Sensei turning into K. He starts to bury his sorrows in his books and restrict his emotions, even though that is what killed K. Sensei has everything K wanted, Shizu and the restrictions of being a monk. However, Sensei never wanted to be a monk, he only wanted Shizu, but he cannot have her. Sensei refuses to tell Shizu about his guilt, because he does not want her to become impure like him. A combination of his parents dying, his uncle taking advantage of him, betraying K, and causing his death made Sensei lose his innocence and he does not want Shizu to lose hers though second hand guilt. Sensei does not care who the narrator tells once Shizu is dead, but until she dies, he cannot tell anyone.
When he broke my finger he made sure nobody made fun of me, mostly because he was the one who broke it (he stepped on it.) He thought it was hilarious, but I didn’t. We help each other with our homework and studying because I know he wouldn’t do it if he didn’t have someone to push him. He pushes me to be a better person too. I support him on his bad days and he’s there for
Fletcher, the first thing that comes to my mind is to escape from the situation, stop the abuse, either psychological or physical. He needed to stand up at the situation and confront it, because he was pilling all this anger inside of him, something that blinded him when they went to the other contest and he almost got killed because he wanted no one to take his place in the orchestra. At the end, because of his disrespecting attitude, he was spell from school, and everything he had worked for was in

These are the reasons why I think we should not celebrate Halloween during school. Yes,it would be fun,but there are many reasons why we should not celebrate Halloween during
When McCandless returned home his parents expressed their fears about his dangerous, daunting trips. Although he knew the dangerous situations he was putting himself through, he didn’t want to back down to his parents, “he wanted to prove to himself that he could make it on his own, without anybody else’s help” (178). He was tired of being babied by his parents, he wanted to show them that he was no longer a boy, but a man. McCandless’ refusal of his parent’s loving advice therefore proves that he wished to be his own person, stating the actions of his trip into the wild as being sane, and a product of independence.
He fears that the world is against him, like he is the victim. We’ve learned that Holden puts up a wall, to protect himself from the real world. He fears growing up will be uncomfortable, and would avoid any adult situations. Before he goes on his date with Sally Hayes, Holden goes to the Museum of Natural History where he used to visit on school trips.“The best thing, though,
