Would you sacrifice a fun life to take care of a person you loved? In the story “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck, two opposites, George and Lennie, act as brothers. These characters will face more than a few lamentations with other characters throughout the whole story. Although George will show acts of kindness and acts of sympathy toward others, he mostly acts rude and aggressive toward others. One reason George can be viewed as aggressive towards Lennie is because George fees the need to make it so Lennie does not have to say anything.
in Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck is his character Lennie a dangerous person “Lennie cried “I didn’t wanna hurt him.”? Lennie’s character is portrayed as a caring person, but his simple mind makes him dangerous. Lennie’s actions in the story show that he is caring but doesn’t know when to stop. Curley the ranch boss’s son attacked Lennie because he was laughing at him. Lennie got scared and lost control grabbing Curley’s hand when he swung and wouldn’t let go crushing the bones in Curley’ hand “Looks to me like every bone in his hand is a bust”.
Lennie has a very simple, childlike mind, which often gets him into trouble. George ultimately kills Lennie to spare him from the wrath of Curley and his crew. In John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, George was justified to kill Lennie. One reason why George was justified to kill Lennie is because he was a threat to society. Lennie’s wrongdoings have only escalated over the years; George had no way of knowing what Lennie could do next.

In the chapter “The man I Killed,” O’Brien narrates an incidence which had permanently destroyed his life, murdering an innocent man. He had a lot of difficulties describing the man he killed, and that is why he avoided using the first person in his narrative. The reason for doing this was to relieve some of his guilt which had possessed him. Nevertheless, O’Brien could not hinder himself from picturing a complete imaginary life for the Vietnamese soldier. He outlined the similarities that he possessed and those of the dead man.
Yes it was this!... whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold;… I made up my mind to take the life of the old man.”(78) “…for it was not the old man who vexed me, but his Evil Eye.” (80) The suspect made it very clear what his intentions were, and why. He isn’t a lunatic on a killing spree, but someone who despises something and wants it gone. The anonymous murderer was aware of his actions, patient, and proud. “You should have seen how wisely I proceeded – with what caution – with what foresight – with what dissimulation I went to work!…the whole week before I killed him.
Okonkwo is the protagonist, so it makes sense for him to demonstrate a lot of pride which he undeniably does. Okonkwo is constantly bragging and boastful talking about how many men he or Umuofia has killed and is constantly scared to be perceived as weak. An early example of this is in chapter 7 when Okonkwo kills Ikemefuna. He is advised by his elders not to go and just stay at home. But Okonkwo goes anyway, which leads to him killing Ikemefuna because "He was afraid of being thought weak."

I had put them into a leg of a stool that I had hollowed out but, they took all of the furniture and burnt it in front of us while we had to stay in formation for two hours.

It can’t really be called a hospital it is only an open hut like the rest.
