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.

Reflecting within itself is a very hard thing to do in the first place. It is even harder when the reflection brings up a bad memory. Reflection might be the hardest thing a person can face as it brings back the pain from past experiences. “Facing It” by Yusef Komunyakaa uses many literary techniques to describe the man’s internal battle due to events he had seen in the Vietnam War. As Yusef examines the wall, he sees names and is reminded of his fellow comrades who lost their lives.
He further emphasizes this by once again using the word “carry”, this time showing that he is carrying his feelings as a burden. This shows that after his fellow soldier, Ted Lavender died due to his fantasies of Martha, he realized his mistake and felt shame and
(“Poor Grendel’s had an accident,” I whisper. “ So may you all) (Gardner 174) Was the last words Grendel had to say in his last moments of life to the people watching him die. I believe that Grendel said this in the way of a curse to the people.

Out of most deaths, it looks like Tim is more impacted by Sam’s than any other. Tim is outraged that Sam is being blamed and punished for something he didn’t do just to discipline the other soldiers.Sam is accused of stealing his own cattle and is sentenced to be executed by his own side; Tim watches the execution full-heartedly, in sadness, and he even yells out during the execution, “ ‘Don’t shoot him, don’t shoot him’ and at that moment Sam slammed backwards as if he was hit by a mallet” (208). Those were Tim’s final words that Sam could here before being blasted. Sam’s passing is as ironic a death you could write for Sam because Tim expected Sam to die, if he were to die in war, in battle and have a glory story with many telling points. Tim’s expectations were not the case; instead Sam dies by being accused incorrectly of stealing his own cattle to teach other troops a lesson about how serious war is.

The Civil War was a brutal time in American history, pinning neighbor against neighbor. Many families were broken up and soldiers often the went wandering into battle aimlessly. Frustrated by this war, an American author, Stephen Crane shows his distaste for this war by his ironic works: the poem “War is kind” and the short story “The Mystery of Heroism” by bringing the loss of family and pointless deaths to advocate against the war. Throughout “War is Kind” a mockery of how the barbarity of war affect spouses, children and parents of the soldiers lost. It specifically focuses on the families orientated around the soldiers in battle and how their deaths have came to be.

I would like to know
Macduff becomes emotional after he realizes his family gets killed. He states, “I cannot but remember such things were,/ That were most precious to me. Did heaven look on,/ And would not take their part?
