She begins the journey with much fear and trepidation and struggles every day in order to survive. She does not give in to despair and helplessness though.
Aeschylus once claimed “And even in our sleep, pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our own will, comes wisdom by the awful grace of god.” Aeschylus shows that pain has incredible effects on the being. Pain plagues and diminishes the mind, body and heart, corrupting the soul itself. In Erich Maria Remarque 's All Quiet on the Western Front, the narrator, Paul Baumer, along with his fellow soldiers, experience these pains almost constantly throughout the story. Due to the traumatizing situations the men are put into during war, they are incapable of readjusting to humanity outside of the battlegrounds. They have been completely dissolved by the incredible pain they experience.
Straight from the heart is a wonderful, but depressing passage narrated by a journalist named Tim Collins.

I also had an overwhelming feeling because the movie was long and sad. However, despite my sad feeling I learnt a lot more about schizophrenia and what it can do to its victims and their loved ones.

Whether it’s a loud noise, a crowd of people, or a weapon, even the simplest word can make them remember the exact feeling of the war. This not only makes them suffer but it also hurts others around them.
