Why would people face harsh weather conditions with little to no aid for them to survive? Throughout the story “into the wild”, Chris after months of “living off the land” in Alaska, starves to death in his bus after finally finding a moose which gave him hope, but since he had not eaten in days and it was infested with flies and bugs, he passes away. He could not eat the moose without obtaining a disease and getting sick. Likewise, in the short story “to build a fire”, the man is faced against harsh weather conditions of 70 below 0 while walking through the Yukon trail for many hours. After falling in the river, the man sits down underneath a tree, and passes away due to his fire being put out by the snow and limited matches.
The lives saved may outweigh the lives lost but it does not mean we can overlook the pain and suffering caused to these animals to get to the treatments and vaccines. People who feel that they can’t allow animal testing for any reason can choose to refuse treatments that have been created through animal tests. However, this means refusing almost all treatments that have been created. Technology is advancing every day and maybe one day, hopefully soon, animals will be replaced by machines and no longer need to suffer. Animal testing may not always be the most sound or successful way to find the answers but right now there is sometimes no other option.
In conclution, Alan Seeger and Emily Dickinson, both explain that althrough there were diffrent viewpoints and lifesyles although death is inevitable and unpredictable, death is something to not be feared but calmly accepted and perhaps calmy anticipated. Death is usually viewed as doubtful and people usually never want to accept it but Seeger and Dickinson explain to us how unevitable death is. Both authors further explain that death must not be feared but calmly accepted. In summary, death is a natural occurance that wiil inevitably happen to every living organism on this earth which is why it’s imperitave to humans that death should not be feared becaause we just wait its
When Chris reached Alaska, he had ended up burning all of his money he had previously earned working for Wayne. McCandless has a mind set to take close to no supplies and live in the Alaskian wilderness on his own without any plan. Adam Shepard had a similar, but yet a very different story than Chris McCandless. Shepard decided to choose a random city and see if he could make it starting with close to nothing with him. In the beginning he had no plan or anywhere to go, until he ran into a man who showed him to a nice shelter close by that he could stay at until he figured out his plan.
In the passage To build a fire the character goal is to get to the campsite where all his friends will be waiting for him to arrive but he never makes it because of the low temperatures he faces many circumstances that slow him down. He struggles with fires when he runs out of matches and he starts to have problems with his body when factors of his body is numbed, his dog can feel that it is not good to continue going in the cold weather but his owner insist to stay and they continue to walk in the snow. The character can not go on anymore and dies out in the middle of nowhere. In conclusion, the moral of the story is even if you have people who give you advice but do not take it sometimes you have to rely on what people tell you. For example, in the story To Build a Fire the character figured out the hard way that you should never travel or hike on your own even you have the faith that you will make it out alive.
There are nine hours of hiking ahead of the man, but that won’t stop him. The man’s dog breaks through this frozen creek and gets its legs wet, so the man now has to start a fire. After a while walking, the man himself breaks through this frozen creek, so he has to build another fire. After a little while longer, the man thinks about what the old man from Sulphur Creek, and how he warned the man that traveling alone in Yukon is very dangerous. The man doesn’t think much of it, he calls the old man “woman-ish” and thinks he just can’t handle the weather.

Climax: The second fire he had built was put out by a load of snow from the tree. He struggles to relight the fire to keep his warmth flowing but is unable to. Resolution: When the man knows his
For example, in “Resistance During the Holocaust”, many wouldn’t rebel because that would not only mean death for them, but death for their family and friends. The Anti-Defamation League states, “However, the risks of resisting Nazi policies were grave; often an act of resistance by one person would mean the death of many others”(5). You should use passive resistance because if you resist that did not only mean the death for you but the death for your family. You are putting other people’s life at risk but if you are passive resistant then you are saving your life, your families’ live, and maybe your friends’ lives. This is important because why would you put the lives of people you care about in jeopardy?
Steve Jobs’ assertion, “ Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart,” is valid because by remembering that in the end, we will all die. We should not contain our way of thinking and how we want to live life. By remembering that life is short, our minds will begin to think differently and perceive life differently.
Odysseus understands what this warning means—that his entire crew will die—but doesn’t do anything about it. He knows only one thing. He will survive. This is the most selfish thing someone can do. I get that you don’t want them to know about their death, but you could at least try to do something about
