The pressure they received was insurmountable. The men in the Vietnam War had to deal with the painful memories and stress for the rest of their lives, however long those ended up being. The war’s strains weighed down the soldiers throughout their lives. One would think that the end of the war would have been a relief for the soldiers, but this was not always the case. When the soldiers returned
If Antinous was still alive the suiter’s would have not treated Odysseus like a king, they would’ve treated him poorly with Antinous. Altogether, treatment of Odysseus shows that after they come home people will treat the person differently than they did before and they will not have the honor or loyalty to that specific person. Many years later some veterans are not able to recover from the war and traumatic memories, even after treatment. In this article, four veterans share their story about what triggered their PTSD and what they do for treatment. Mercer, Wiry, Leban, and Graves all have something in common, they all suffer from the disease, PTSD and they all tried to seek some form of treatment.
And this can cause some permanent damage to that person. People in today's society were not giving these veterans coming home from the war the treatment they need and well-deserved. However, the treatment of these veterans has been getting worse as time goes on. These veterans come home expecting glory and end up being treated very poorly. A fictional epic tale is about a hero who goes through many tragic events this epic is titled the Odyssey.
The Great Wall came with many losses like all of the deaths but have you ever wondered what hey went brought? The people who built the wall went through many harsh conditions like a starvation, loneliness, boredom, the weather conditions, weakness, falling from the heights documents F, E, B. You never really starve or get lonely or bored now days because we have so much and we have a lo more freedom than what the people back then had, you cant talk with friends or text, no face time, no electronics. I still disagree with the wall being built because of he harsh conditions, the cost was greater than the benefits document F, B,
Lennie tries to be in line with society however, his disability makes it much harder, especially in the time period that this story takes place in. To begin, public hospitals were understaffed and patients were often left without any kind of treatment. According to blogs.cofc.edu, conditions were also deteriorating due to a lack of funding during the Great Depression. This is important because it could explain why Lennie is not getting any actual treatment in the story. People who had a mental disability were also usually
Returning home from war is never an easy transition for a soldier, no soldier embodied that truth more than Norman Bowker. Bowker is a Vietnam War veteran from the novel The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien who struggles with his life and mental health after the Vietnam War. Bowker is troubled by his memories- most specifically one memory- that he cannot forget or forgive himself for. Bowker was a man who had to fight for his life every day he was in Vietnam, there was always a chance the Viet Cong would attack. Bowker lost friends and lost fellow soldiers every day in Vietnam, he even lost his best friend to the war.
it was said that although the disease was called soldier’s heart, most people did not know what the disease was. What it is though is PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Yes, I think that Charley Goddard at the end of the story has Soldier’s Heart. I think he has this because of the war. Ever since he came back home alive from the war, he has been having flashbacks.
In both the book and the movie The Devil’s Arithmetic, there are many similarities and differences. The characters, setting, and theme may be similar, but they may be completely different. There is an ample amount of people who want to forget about the Holocaust, and some people bluntly claim that it never happened. Although the numbers of those who lived through the Holocaust are diminishing, those few survivors who were unwillingly thrown into a place where they were despised, prejudiced, and dehumanized put those atrocious claims to rest. These brave souls assist in reminding us of what happened so long ago.
They see soldiers and civilians dying, and are made kill others. Prisoners of war are often mistreated, and conditions for those who aren’t captured are still not given good living conditions. Many soldiers who live are injured and have near-death experiences. Billy Pilgrim, the main character from Slaughterhouse-Five, was emotionally scarred from the war, and therefore believed he was time-travelling. Little things would upset him or bring back memories of the war because of the ordeal through which he went.
Elder Abuse The mistreatment of the elderly is not something as it has been there since antiquity and despite its severity, the society continues to ignore elder abuse. Various initial trials to understand the clinical spectrum of this phenomenon and to identify an effective intervention strategy have been limited by their unpredictable nature. In the past decade, there have been improvements on the research regarding this subject as a way of provoking interest in the field of nursing, particularly professionals who take care of the older adults and their immediate families. Though in most cases the term elderly abuse has been used to refer to physical mistreatment of the older citizens, financial exploitation as part of psychological mistreatment
He got disability and social security for six years until he stopped getting checks from social security because there were supposedly numerous unskilled one handed jobs. It was situations like this that made Vietnam veterans feel unappreciated. The veterans from World War II were welcomed with open arms while the Vietnam veterans were denied social security. Black veterans who came back home were not treated with the respect and dignity that they deserved. First lieutenant Archie Biggers was treated differently by the black community because he was an officer.
I have to admit I had very little knowledge of WWI before I read this book, except for the bare minimum of how it started and how a great many young men died in the war. I also don 't normally read books with many battle scenes and with war as the main theme, but once I started reading the story of the war, I just couldn 't put it down until I reached the last page. What moved me most was the detailed description of the tension in the anticipation of the attacks (i.e., Battle of the Somme), the horror of being trapped in tunnels thirty feet underground in no man 's land, and the psychological effect of the sheer brutality of the war on the soldiers, which was unimaginable and destructive to say the least. The last chapter about the war was this truly remarkable story of endurance, bravery, survival and humanity that makes me admire the talent of writer. I also found the parts about tunnel digging very interesting to read as well.
There was a time when violence was not needed. Now races try to use their history to explain their violence and tolerance levels towards each other. There has been several instances where specific races have killed other races and vice versa. Which does not help the endless race war. Martin Luther King Jr.
Amir had many opportunities to say something, and sometimes he wanted to, but when the time came Amir was quite and never told anyone. Amir lived with guilt for a while it crippled him psychologically and he had reoccurring flashbacks about him not telling anyone of Hassan’s rape, and he wished he could have spoken up and said something.
