In addition, the article, “Panic Rises in Saigon, but the Exits are Few”, states, "'I called hoping that I could speak to her in one more time,' he added. Now I will never talk to her again'" (Butterfield 55). This quote demonstrates how this person lost his family because they had to leave while he was at work. Due to this, he lost his family like many others. This is a universal refugee experience because many people were forced to leave their families behind in order to survive.

As a consequence of the war, Zlata was stuck there for two years, and during that period, she lost countless numbers of friends and family. War is a desperate struggle between two sides, feeding off of the people around it, making the destruction of people feel depressing. The most damage from war occurs emotionally due to the intense sadness caused by constant loss of lives. The deaths of people that you know are the worst result of war because it causes unhappiness and takes an emotional toll on you. For example, this is shown when Zlata’s friend is killed by shrapnel from a shell.

One reason I am choosing to leave is that there is too much sickness. I have a very large of dying from the sicknesses getting passed around. I overheard General George Washington say that around 3,989 soldiers have gotten sick by February (Busch 147). And that 2,500 deaths have come from sickness (Busch 147). Frostbite and Smallpox have played a big part here at Valley Forge.

This miserable event of Mary’s live shows the basic interest of the novel as an example of the loss of hope. The Last Man by Mary Shelley is the second story that I am going to be discussing in my analysis paper. Mary experienced a great degree of grief when she lost her family due to the tragedy of nature that caused a lot of damages to the society where she lived. She mentioned most things she witnessed together with her experiences with the plague that wiped many people around her. Obviously, Mary is trying to speak directly to the readers about her feelings and is going on to ask them, how to go to live when someone you love dies?
In the article, around 200,000 people died from hunger, disease, and slave labor because they chose to give up (Piper 378).

Qualls was fragile especially after being brainwashed to kill innocent prisoners. Qualls feels that no one can relate to him or understand what he’s going through, so he kills himself. March writes(pg.223) “I put the barrel in my mouth and pulled the trigger twice”.So due to the illness of war he ends it all he kills himself and this is what war caused him to do. He couldn’t take the pressure of his child being sick. According to Elsevier Ltd, “By contrast, many and by some accounts most veterans experience high levels of stress during the transition to civilian life.” Elsevier Ltd,“Transition stress is multifaceted and can lead to serious mental health problems.” In other words transitioning into the war can be a huge mental disorder on a soldier just as leaving the war can be.
My observation shown that when a person dies, the family is in great suffering for the loss of their significant other. It leaves the loved one with great pain and with the realization that their loved one is gone forever. In this culture, most people usually die at hospitals or at hospice. This usually happens because most people
Imagine seeing a friend get shot but not being able to do anything to help because if one would help they’d be the next to go. This is what was happening in the American Civil War from 1861-1865. Many soldiers came back and very different, some in good ways but many in bad ways. During the Civil War, soldiers experienced horrific and terrifying things often causing severe psychological trauma; as a result of this trauma, men often suffered mistreatment and went wrongly diagnosed until Jacob DaCosta discovered and researched what we now call Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Every single soldier in the war came close to death, whether watching a fellow fighter die, almost dying themselves, or killing an innocent victim.
