In “The Way Up to Heaven,” Mrs. Foster doted on her grandchildren because she thought they were perfect. This is important because it gives a glimpse of their lives and how different they are. The doting shows they are kind-hearted or of a generally good nature, so that the surprise or shock is more pronounced when we realize what they are capable of murder. Another example of a similarity is whenever Mrs. Foster and Patrick Maloney are nervous, their eyes begin to twitch. Mrs. Foster’s eye would twitch when she got nervous about missing a flight or a train.

In Naomi Shihab Nye’s poem “Shoulders,” she shows just how important protecting loved ones is. “Shoulders” is about a father who needs to protect his son from the rain in order to let him sleep.
Most would say that an older person who passes away has already lived their life, yet the pain it brings to family members is still difficult to deal with but may be easier to bare with because it is part of life. On the other hand, a child who dies at a young age has not yet lived their life or experienced anything. Therefore, it is a life changing experience that one may never overcome.
