Ray Bradbury shows just about no hope in the ending of his story while Wiz Khalifa actually leaves the listeners with hope for a much more unfortunate event. The sun absolutely destroys Margot in “All Summer in a Day” and towards the end, it makes her basically turn into a ghost. While at the end of “See You Again” the death of Paul Walker brings Khalifa and listeners down and upset but he leaves a point that there is a chance to see Paul Walker again and that is in heaven. At the end of listening to “See You Again” and reading “All Summer in a Day” the reader is left to wonder- If someone loses something should they let it bring them down so much to basically turn them into a ghost-like Margot? While we leave the story, seeing how powerful a loss is, we are also wondering if an insignificant loss should leave someone with no
