They are telling jokes and gossiping about others as if they don’t know that one of them could possibly be killed in a matter of minutes. In “The Hunger Games” the feeling that the citizens present is very different, “People file in silently and sign in…Family members line up around the perimeter, holding tightly to one another’s hands…they will break down and weep.” (Collins, 16-17).

In other words, in “Don’t Give Up The Fight,” once Ava tells her friend what was happening, that influenced her to tell the principal what had been happening. But, in “Making Sarah Cry,” the main character stands up to the bullies, which influenced them to be just like him. In the story “Don’t Give Up The Fight,” the theme shows being different. For example, in the text, it says, “ Along the way, he kept addressing us as boys and men. It happened every time, but still, my stomach hardened and I clenched my teeth.” Additionally, the story also shows being different from saying, “It’s just I am the only girl on the team, so it’s harder.” The first piece of evidence shows how Ava’s track coach

One specific example would be Big Daddy and his desire for conformity. He reveals to his son Brick that he hates going to church and he hates his wife, and his other son Gooper and he hates almost every aspect of his life but he endures it every day just so that he can conform to social norms. Think of all the lies I got to put up with! Ain 't that mendacity? Having to pretend stuff you don 't think or feel or have any idea of?

By making his decision to be an individual the result is that it makes it hard to
Here, despite having achieved a lot, for an even bigger loss than a “blood-smeared leg”, the crowd’s reception is more hollow. The words “thanked him” are meaningless and almost sarcastic. The ‘cripple’ just wants to be raised shoulder-high like before and knowing that it may never happen again shows the reader how depressed and how much he regrets going to war. In ‘The Last Night’ the writer uses “stood trembling in a wired-off corner” and “refused to come down” to show how the children are reacting and aware of what is going to happen to them. The use of “stood trembling” shows how the deportees are standing, waiting in fear.

The boys in "Refresh, Refresh" were so afraid of what Dave was about to say that they acted out of fear and started to beat Dave up. The boys turned into monsters because they were so afraid of the news Dave had because he was the one who told the family that their loved one was killed in combat. The boys still were so afraid of what Dave wanted to tell them that they continued to beat him up until, "He closed his mouth and tried to crawl away" (5). Another way to use suspense is to to show how someone is so angry and afraid that they turn into some they are not and get very violent. At this part of the story Dave was trying to come tell him that his father had passed away in combat, but he was too afraid to hear him say the words that he didn 't let him and just beat Dave up.
This juxtaposition is powerful because it meant that he did not wish to witness the consequences of his decisions and refused to accept responsibility for the deaths that he had caused. This is yet another similarity that Himmler has with Griffin as she had bullied another girl, however disowned her acts afterwards as if she had not done anything. Griffin accordingly proceeds to write about a Holocaust survivor who had watched and even joined in a circle of kids who beat her friend because he was Jewish. Griffin, Himmler, and the Holocaust survivor are part of a “web of connections”, connected to every other person in the world that have also tried to disown their actions. This confirms Griffin’s idea that people do indeed share a “common past”; in Griffin, Himmler, and survivor’s case, this would be bullying other
