SUNFLOWER ROUGH DRAFT Imagine you in a concentration camp being a prisoner and the amount of food you receive is little to none. Where the bed you sleep on is harder than a rock and the clothes you go to sleep in is the same clothes that you wore while working. Where you have to witness families being torn apart and you can not do anything about it.

I believe that Simon did the right thing in walking away from Karl. I believe that karma exist and if you act heartless then it will come back to you. Like how it happened to Karl he acted heartless towards the jews and didn 't care or acted like he didn 't care about the jews lives. Then when he was dying and asking for Simons forgiveness Simon walked away acting heartless towards Karl and i see that as karma. Karl made a huge mistake therefore he does not deserve forgiveness. Put yourself in Simon’s shoes and think about it. Would you have done things differently? What if someone killed one of you relatives? Or a friend? Would you forgive someone for that? Do you even believe that something like that can be forgiven. Is forgiving always the right to do? For example, when you are being treated below a human being and animals are being treated with more respect than yourself. In my opinion i forgiven due to the damage that he did to the jews. The question is did simon do the right thing in just walking away or would it have been better
