However, his entire perspective changed when one day he caught his mother embracing an elderly Droughtlander within the Key walls, to which he became immensely concerned at his mother catching an illness by being close proximity to one of them. His mother assured him that she would stay healthy, and revealed a tome to Eli. At first he did not understand what the tome’s importance was, but as he read on he found a terrifying fact: “The [Keys] was responsible for the death of ninety-two percent of the world’s population. If all of this was really true, giving up the Keylanders as his people just got easier” (Mac 30). The tome revealed that the Keys cloudseeded their way into power, by stealing any rainclouds using cloudseeders to direct clouds to rain on the Keys, and leave no rain left for anywhere else, making the areas between the Keys parched and thus become the Droughtland.

The text depicts memories from before the collapse but also tells the story of the present day. As the text largely deals with death, memories play an important role as they act as a coping mechanism especially for Kristen who does not have a family around her. However, it is evident from the text that Kristen is thankful that she cannot remember any of the first years after the flu as she avoided the trauma of the deaths and the drastic change in civilisation. “I can 't remember the year we spent on the road, and I think that means I can 't remember the worst of it. But my point is, doesn 't it seem to you that the people who have the hardest time in this—this current era, whatever you want to call it, the world after the Georgia Flu—doesn 't it seem like the people who struggle the most with it are the people who remember the old world clearly?”
With this action Chris showed he would drive from all he knew and denounce his name to be happy. The people he meet can see his free spirit and happiness because of this and how he presents himself. They can see he won't let things material of emotional get in the way of his happiness, and they admire that in him. Even with all the knowledge and air of sophistication Chris is still very navie. Chris, dumb genious, happily depressed, or wisely naive whatever you view him to be he was loved by all without waver.
Steinbeck shows us that individuals can take care of the sick with their actions. An influenza outbreak occurs in the middle of March and many get sick and Doc steps up and helps the sick out even though he is not supposed to practice medicine, “It was not his fault that everyone in the Row came to him for medical advice. Before he knew it he found himself running from shanty to shanty taking temperatures, giving physics, borrowing and delivering blankets and even taking food from house to house where mothers looked at him with inflamed eyes from their beds, and thanked him and put the full responsibility for their children’s recovery on him. (Steinbeck 93). Doc was not supposed to practice medicine but he does and helps the sick people out because he cares about the well-being or others.
The initial action of the story was quite mysterious as no context is given to the reader, all the reader knows is that there are two characters, Gabriella and Liam, and that Liam isin Jasper Hospital for an unknown reason. From the narration the reader develops a recognition for the type of relationship the two share, “the scent reminds her of the homemade cleaning solution she prepared at Liam’s insistence. She used the mixture for a week, until she noticed it took twice as long to remove the grime as the concrete she bought at the janitorial supply store. Liam hadn’t notice she stopped using it.” (Helgason, 71)
He showed his modesty when he would say something and could successfully back it up. The better Pat got, the more humble he got about being good. Finally, even though he knew he was good, instead of bragging about it and talking himself up, he showed people how good he was. It was beyond doubt that everyone saw he was a modest person.
Your discussion definitely brought my attention, because I am one of this minority of the hospital staff members that each year refuses the mandatory influenza vaccination for over seven years, and strongly believes in preventative measures. So far, I have not been sick with flu. However, to comply with the hospital policy, I need to wear the mask for the entire flu season and sign the document in the Human Resources Department about the reason for my refusal. Additionally, I need to explain my situation to the patient I am taking care of, in order to alleviate their anxiety and suspicion when they see me entering their room to introduce myself and receive a shift report. It is not a place and a time to discuss why I chose this approach;
I hung up on the principal I don 't understand what 's going on with my child but I believe she will be ok. I called my husband he didn 't pick up I 'm all lonely and I don 't know what to do, so I called the neighbors to take care of my son.

After 11 weeks of working in the lavines I am transferred to work in the infirmary. I attend to the sick patients and try to cure them with the little resources we have. I have no experience in the medical field at all, I’ve decided it is my job to keep spirits up or to help people die in peace. Not many people who walk into the infirmary walk out again, as I stated before there were many selections and the weak simply aren 't strong enough to get well. I’ve seen every injury you could possibly imagine from the common killer, Typhus, to internal mutilation from the experiments.
