It is clear that Jim is more like a father-figure to Huck when they come across a dead body in the house, which later on is revealed to be Huck's father. After seeing it, Jim says to Huck “Come in, Huck, but doan’ look at his face, it’s too gashly” (Twain). Right away Jim knew the dead man was really Huck’s father, but Jim was trying to protect Huck by never letting him see the face. It is also clear that Jim cares about Huck like one of his own children when he protects him from the rain. Jim finds a dry cave to use as shelter to keep Huck and himself safe.

David took care of himself until he arrived at his uncle Ebenezer house. David having his dad alive could have avoided all the bad things that happened to David, like being kidnapped by his uncle.

It is inferred that the gun that contains two rounds is for the man and his son as a last resort; however, the man uses one bullet to kill a man who threatens the boy. Late that night while the boy is asleep, the man contemplates how there is only a single bullet left in the pistol in the case that he needs to kill his son out of mercy to keep him from suffering; he tries not to ponder that outcome by thinking, "You will not face the truth. You will not" (68.) Although he does not end up killing his son, this situation reminds me of George Milton killing Lennie Smalls in Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck; George loves Lennie, but he would rather kill him quickly himself than have Lennie's murder being prolonged by Curly's treatment. The same is for the man in The Road; he would rather kill his son himself than have him die suffering from a situation out of their
Jim, a runaway slave and one of society’s outcast members in Huckleberry Finn, portrays the admirable characteristic of self-sacrifice. Jim is a father himself and when Huck and Jim are switching shifts for watch on the raft at night, Jim lets Huck sleep through his shift often. This simple act of kindness greatly illustrates the type of self-sacrifice that Twain would want in his ideal person. Huck considers, “I went to sleep, and Jim didn’t call me when it was my turn. He often done that.
His father said “You cannot know the fear”(pg 109). Terry’s father does not want his son to know the fear that he went through, he had to hide under half of his friends body to survive. That shows us just some of the things that happen during war.

Jim is a good friend to Huck because he protects Huck from seeing his dead father in the cabin (Twain 52). Jim proves his friendship early in their journey, but it takes Huck a bit longer. Huck eventually proves his friendship to Jim by ripping up a letter that he was going to send to Miss Watson. The letter would explain that Jim was innocent of Huck’s “death” and where he would be going (Twain 220). Huck proves his friendship to Jim with this small, but the very courageous action of not sending the letter and ripping it up instead.
Wake up, they’re going to throw you out the side!” (pg 99) shows the reader that midway through the story Elie still really cared about his father and did not want him to die. He still had hope that his dad could survive. However, this quote at the end of the story, “I no longer thought of my father,” (pg 113) showed that he lost all hope and only thought about himself and his own health due to the circumstances. Also, Elie was not the only son going through
Lastly in the end, Elie ends the book once he is offered freedom from everything that has occurred these years. Imagine being forced into a life of abuse and starvation for up to 12 years. During those years with his father, Mr. Weisel came to his end during his sleep. Instead of sorrow Elie actually felt a little positive about his father’s death, ‘In the depths of my being, in the recesses of my weakened conscience, could I have searched it, I might perhaps have found something like- free at last!’ Pg75.

A few disappeared into thin air; one, eating dinner with his family, rose, walked through a wall and was never seen again.
