It shows how he suffers every time he needs to collect a body, but he helps them by collecting their souls. He does not wish for people to die but he is the one who needs to deal with the result when they do. It hurts him to see what humans do to other humans, but by going through this suffering, he heals and continues to survive which shows the humanity that is in Death. Zusak also uses third person omniscient to convey the thematic message on suffering in healing. Readers can have a sense of how everyone feels and see how they develop as characters.
The first sentences of the novel are directly addressed to the reader, who is assured by Death that he is not the evil entity the reader might expect. He presents himself as being capable of feeling and as having human characteristics, even being better than some actual humans are. He says he is “amiable, agreeable, affable” then he adds “And that’s only the A’s”, which is another technique used to get closer to the reader: humor. Zusak’s personification of death has a quite didactic function and one might say it is meant to teach children what death is without traumatizing them.

He was empathizing in his speech was that even though a great many people looked up to him and admire him he was not be idolized because he is just a man and like all men there will be a day when he will die and that it would take each and every one to continue to fight after he is gone.

The author of this article concludes that legacy is a show of what we leave behind after out death (Chittister, 2010). I agree with this conclusion because our legacy is what is left in people’s mouths after we die. Also, I think that the dead can continue to inspire good and warn the living on bad behavior because their legacy gives an insight on how best to live life. In the writer’s perspective, it connects the past and future.

I have known people that have died slowly and painfully and it is very hard to see loved ones live in pain and pass away in pain. I could not begin to imagine what they were experiencing and having to live with. The Death with Dignity Act would provide those people with an alternative choice to the awful circumstances their medical conditions have put them in. This would allow those certain people to be able to pass peacefully and on their own terms. That is why I have chosen to write about the Death with Dignity Act.
For example, when Kathleen asks how the war began he summarizes, “‘Some people wanted one thing, other people wanted another thing’” (O’Brien 175). This statement is incredibly indifferent for someone who continuously risks his life and witnesses the deaths of many comrades. Such a response demonstrates how greatly he has come to terms with the atrocities he witnesses, no matter how much uncertainty likely surrounds his life—or at least how he wishes his daughter will see his view of the war. Kathleen passively enables her father to develop a new outlook on the
