The Marines can not properly rest due to constant perturbation of being killed at any moment. Moreover, erratic behavior is directly seen though the description of a lance corporal from Rodriquez's platoon. Due to the loss of two of his friends six weeks ago, “he’d been having mood swings, angry outbursts. He’d been punching walls, finding it impossible to sleep unless he quadrupled
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
While going along with his mother he too grew a hatred for the helpless David. He would hide food in the basement where David stayed, on purpose, so his mother would find it and beat David for stealing food. Although, towards the end of The Lost Boy, and during A Brother’s Journey Dave was taken out of the house he had been abused in for all his life. Now that David is gone, his mother has nobody to take her drunken anger out on. She
Byron starts out as a really mean bully,and a bad influence, to a role model for Kenny. From the very beginning Byron always had a bad attitude and behavior. Byron was continuously stirring up trouble from the very beginning. In chapter 7 he gets a haircut from his friend Buphead without asking or telling his mom and or dad. Once his mom finds out she said to him “What have you done?” then later on she also says to him “But before your father gets you, let me ask you something.
Mr. DeWine has struggled his whole life to find its meaning which could be due to his father hitting him from a child. Ms. Petty is sleeping with a married man and has no respect for herself therefor she isn’t getting any from other people. Tango and Whiskey are young boys in high school that have felt so slighted by society they feel the need to kill. Ironically, each character is different but yet searching for the same thing in life.
Cross realized that Martha would never love him. When he finally realized this concept, Cross was depressed cause he spent all his time thinking about how he wanted her to love him. “On the morning after Ted Lavender died, First Lieutenant Jimmy Cross crouched at the bottom of his foxhole and burned Martha’s letter. Then he burned the two photographs.” (par. 81).
“The Lacks children had to work from sunup to sundown; they weren’t allowed to take breaks, and they got no food or water until nightfall, even when the summer heat burned. Ethel would watch them from the couch or a window, and if one of them stopped working before she told them to, she’d beat them all bloody. At one point, she beat Sonny so badly with an extension cord, he ended up in the hospital. But Joe got the worst of Ethel’s rage” (Skloot 112). External conflict occurs which is man vs. man because it is conflict between two or more people, Ethel, Deborah, Joe, and Sonny.
Gregor now realizes his father shows no sympathy towards Gregor and instead punishes him for something he has no control over. Gregor began to resent his father for throwing household items at him, squashing him like a bug. Even his beloved sister Grete began irritating Gregor by removing all of his belonging from his room, leaving him with nothing. The cruelty performed on Gregor by his own family sends him into a dark pit of despair. With nothing to live for he began to slowly end his life, making one final sacrifice for the ones he loves
Since his visions of an Alternia where blood knew no meaning and all trolls were equal he’d been plagued by visions of his death. They had been insistent things, bombarding him pan night after night and day after day. There had been times he’d gone a week with no sleep just to avoid waking up screaming and drenched in sweat, tears and piss. And though that was bad enough, worse was his heart which beat too fast while feeling like it lay still as well as the burning in his wrists. The agony of both these imagined injuries had gotten so bad he’d been unable to so much as curl a toe without pain lancing throughout his entire
He frequently woke up at midnight and shrank from Faith beside him in bed, and when his family prayed together at morning or at night, he glared and murmured to himself. In spite of the fact that he carried on with a long life and passed on a father and granddad, he kicked the bucket troubled and frantic, with no engraving on his tombstone. After that night, he turns into a stern, miserable, and doubtful man. He rejects the faith he once had in his religion and even rejects his own particular wife. At his passing, no cheerful words are carved upon his tombstone.
