The story of “A Rose for Emily” is told in flashbacks. It describes a woman named Miss Emily Grierson who is basically the talk of the town. After the death of her father she becomes a static character. She’s seen as a static character because throughout the story her traits don’t change. She refused that her father died and became mad.
Lastly, Spiritual death. Spiritual death is a large part of this story, mostly because it shows the complete loss of faith. An example of this is “Never shall I forget those moments that murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to ashes.” (Wiesel 34). This is the night of his first time at camp. This is significant because it shows how quickly he became spiritually dead.

Najmah has lost the bond with her family, and the and the author uses the detail of “the stars disappearing one by one” to show that.

I have come to the United States to study their culture related to the end of life and how the American people celebrate or deal with death. The first thing that I observed was what happens when a person dies. In this case when a person dies is classified when the heart and other major organs have stopped. When a person dies the person does not have any senses, emotions, the body itself have clinically stop working.

On one hand there is a ninety-four year old man or woman functioning like a 65 year old (still working and requiring very little assistance).

There has to be some type of insurance that is affordable for every person that provides them with at least the minimum benefits. Some health benefits are better than none at all. This will give people a higher expectancy of living a longer life, as oppose to somebody who has no medical coverage. Our lack of universal coverage has consequences. According to government and private studies, about 22,000 of our fellow Americans die each year of treatable diseases because they lack insurance and can’t afford a doctor.
