After Rwanda and seeing so many people die, Dallaire is no longer who he used to be which slowly destroys his home and work environment. Joseph and Dallaire have both lost their ability to be normal due to the gruesomeness of war. War inevitably brings loss from all angles. There are an infinite number of things war does to a person, country, or soldier. When soldiers go back home, if they make it home, they’re still haunted by regret, guilt, and depression.

For example Richie and Peewee were both young teens who didn’t know what war can bring. But they quickly see that it changes them to a mindset of a man instead of a college kid getting a degree. They were always in life and death situations which caused them to adapt to this sneario and lose their old childish way of thinking. But not only being in a dangerous environment caused them to lose their innocence ut, the fact that they had to kill another man which was very hard to do for such a young age “I had killed a man. I though about how he looked, how I felt.”(Myers 182).
Like Chris, Krakauer went through harsh and difficult situations and did not feel as confident during his adventure as he did before it. One of the reasons Krakauer adds his experience to the story is to do away with the thought that Chris McCandless was suicidal. Krakauer did not believe that Chris was because he was so similar to Chris when he took his journey, “…had i not returned from the Stikine Ice Cap in 1977, people would have been quick to say of me - as they now say of him - that i had a death wish. Eighteen years after the event, I now recognize that i suffered from hubris, perhaps, and an appalling innocence, certainly; but i wasn't suicidal.” (Page 155, paragraph 5) Krakauer shares this because he wants people to look at Chris as more than a kid who had a death wish. Overall, these additions to Into The Wild bring a different view and understanding of who Chris McCandless
“Brother, brother, don’t leave me!” In the short story, “The Scarlet Ibis,” James Hurts writes about a child who is born with disabilities that cause him to be treated differently. Eventually, his older brother is so embarrassed by him that he decides to teach him to be normal and the ways of life. The author writes about how embarrassing feelings overcome people and force them to do strange things they would have never done before. Also, the leading results can impact someone’s individual life. Doodle’s disabilities affected him from birth so he was not treated equal and his brother wanted him to learn the things he should already know.
He is noted to rarely mention his personal life, perhaps due to the impact of his mother’s death, his father’s financial problems, and his difficult marriage. Because of these stressful events, “he struggled over individual poems and was often dissatisfied with his efforts”( Ruppersburg). His first novel Night Rider, unfortunately went unrecognized but on the other hand, All The King’s Men gained popularity as a notable political novel about the process of going from ‘rags to riches’, earning him the Pulitzer Prize. Shortly after, Warren experienced a ten year long poets block in 1954 and wrote autobiographical verses about the lessons and losses of experience. He used personal experiences from his childhood as well as history to write these works.
Evidently, she is experiencing trauma because of Faiz’s absence, by constantly worrying about him and experiencing a decrease of aspiration. Since Faiz’s absence is because of the war, the war is the underlying cause of Nusrat’s psychological trauma. (STEWE-2) Mental trauma is also displayed by Najmah, as a result of her mother and Habib’s deaths in the war. Shortly after the incident that killed her mother and brother, Najmah narrates, “I am afraid if I close my eyes I’ll see my mother’s outstretched arm and the stain of blood spreading around her and Habib’s perfect small body, both of them still and covered with dust” (Staples 86). Furthermore, before her flashbacks, during the moment her mother and Habib were killed, Najmah observed “arrow-shaped phantom” in the sky, along with “explosions” that grew “closer and louder” (Staples 65).
Every day the feelings of remorse, of insecurity, or guilt would eat away at him and become debilitating, and that's just what happened. This quote and his family was established to be one of the reasons he ended his life. Thank you all from the pit of my burning, nauseous stomach for your letters and concern during the past years. Cobain here uses metaphors according to Eva T. S. Sudjana1 Nurul Fitri “burning pit means grave” they state. With this being the case Cobain knew his attempt at suicide would succeed and that these thank yous would be found after his passing.
World War I completely destroyed the lives of many people. Men who just got out of high school got tricked into going into the military and fighting for their country. The fear of being killed in battle lingered in the hearts of many soldiers, young men dying from different diseases and horrible living conditions, and dealing with the loss of their mates in the army. War completely changed their view on life altogether as they sought different ways to survive. Mentally and physically they were drained, from the exhausting training they were ordered to do early in the morning, to feeling intense emotions of fear, loneliness, and sorrow.
In addition, the fear of death can lead a person to depression such as Brittany Maynard. She was unhappy at the fact that she couldn 't enjoy her life as she used too. Maynard felt as if her world was falling apart because each day the cancer would worsen. She couldn 't live

Regretting is being disappointed over a missed opportunity. Lewis Carroll stated, “In the end of our life, we regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were too afraid too have and the decisions we waited too long to make.” The missed opportunity that I regret in my life is not going to the invitational for USA Baseball. This opportunity could’ve been my big break in baseball while as a player in high school. I never put in the hard work and I learned my lesson because I wasn’t ready to try out because I felt that I wasn’t good enough. I live by Lewis Carroll’s quote because at the end of my life I don’t want to regret anything.
While I do not consider it a failure now at the time I was definitely frustrated with myself and considered it a failure. When I had to repeat my junior year I was mad at myself for not be able to complete the school year. As time went on I was able to focus on the positives in the situation and I was able to finally accept that I was not prepared for my senior year both emotionally and academically considering I missed so much school. If I did continue on to senior year I would not have been close to prepared as I am now for college. I ended up repeating my junior year due to the fact that I missed close to two-thirds of school due to a medical condition.
