There is a disconnect because he feels as though he cannot communicate to his father and his family because they truly do not understand him. This is critical because not being able to communicate will slow the process of them joining society after serving. Wood summarizes this sensation perfectly when he states, “afraid or unwilling to be judged by civilians, many new veterans isolate themselves, never speaking of their wartime experiences. [They are] unable to explain” their emotions (Wood). This inhibits them to reconnect with civilians and their family, and ultimately it will prevent them from returning to their lives and society after deployment.
Jose did not take part in caring for his brother after he brought up the idea of wanting to end his own life. Even though Jose is capable of having his own values and opinions on the subject at hand, in the movie he is portrayed as the antagonist for not agreeing with Ramons wishes. Personally, I look at the moral and spiritual aspect of the situation. I believe all individuals aren’t handed a situation that they cannot handle. Not saying any given situation will be easy, but as humans we need to struggle once in awhile.
Adaptation has never been a strong side of mankind. People are just not fond of the fact they need to change in order to survive both as species and personalities. And if all those small steps one makes to and fro their zone of comfort everyday are enough of a drag, how would this person feel if they suddenly lost everything they believed was
His dull and average life seemingly pushes him to the brink and makes him start wondering what the point of his existence is if he was “...the surest person to perform nothing today…” (Hawthorne 1). At a certain point even he was bored of himself, which is interesting because he can’t stand being the ideal guy. It makes the reader ask themselves why society sets these standards that make people miserable and unhappy. At the start of “Bartleby the Scrivener”, Bartleby already is miserable and unhappy. Though the narrator originally leads the reader to believe that this is because Bartleby works day and night with “...no pause for digestion” and hardly speaks to his co workers, it is because life has already worn him out (Melville 11).
He even willing states that he would kill his loved ones. Huck has experienced loss in hid life and, but never really learned how to deal with it. As the story goes on however, we see Huck beginning to care more, not only about death but about the overall well being and happiness of other people. Huck shows great maturation in a very short period of time, with really nobody to look up to.

In his search for his grandfather’s request it has left him alone with nothing to support himself, since he had to leave his family and friends.He also refuse to have any friends because he wanted to focus on his goals in life and without any friends one is left isolated, because frankly without any friends one cannot have any moral support so that they don’t feel left out.

This passage reflects not only a passing of time, but also that Neddy’s memory is obviously apprehensive and erroneous. Neddy’s inability to remember substantial details about his neighbors indicates that he has been dangerously unfocused with his everyday life. Suggesting that depression or some other type of psychological illness could be distracting Neddy, rendering him incompetent of separating his memories from the reality which surrounds him. Also the fact that the Welcher’s pool has dried up is also imperative because it epitomizes an intermission in his journey, just as a midlife crisis interposes the previously smooth lives of men and women in our society. Midlife crises are commonly alleged to be experienced during the ages of 40 and 60, in which it can be presumed Neddy is perhaps somewhere in this age range.
Tom cares only about himself; not about his daughter, wife, or friends. Tom doesn't value anybody but himself because of his high self-esteem. Tom clearly does not value his marriage because he cheats with Myrtle, or when he planed on leaving daisy. Today there are so many people like Tom; people who just care about themselves, they do not value relationships, and when their friends need help they are nowhere to be found. Although there are many characters with no morals in the Great Gatsby, there are few with good morals.

They struggle” (91). During times of instability, people only look out for themselves, instead of helping out their community. This stimulates the division of like people and as a result, the community struggles.
During times of war, trust and survival cease to coexist. Throughout A Long Way Gone authored by Ishmael Beah, trust is frequently undermined by survival. In order to secure safety, placing trust within others no longer remains an option; however, once safety is guaranteed, the idea of trust no longer exists. In order to secure safety, placing trust within others no longer remains an option. During times where the safety of an individual, family, or community becomes uncertain,
