I think Frost is blaming the boy 's death on years upon years of noxious societal views forced upon the people. He 's blaming society because we as people can 't learn, and the boy 's death is an example of this (No more to build on there. / And they, since they / Were not the one dead, turned to their affairs).The boy represents all the kids who lost their lives for trivial causes, such as being coerced into child labour. He 's blaming society for being apathetic and not being able to see the flaws in their traditions. He wants society to open their eyes and understand that too many people died for this type of job to be right.

During 1607-1611, early Jamestown colonists died to many reasons like starvation, occupations, and drought. Colonists did not have many resources to live a long life. That is why they died so fast through 1607-1611. Colonists died because they tried to find a new settlement for more land so they can have more resources and for a stronger defense, but instead they got attacked and there was not a lot of food there to feed them all. Colonists died by attacks by Indians.
Then, the environment started to play a role. Major dust storms swept through the prairies, leaving farmers with no crops and no ways to get food or make money. These additional effects to the stock market crash made the banks take people’s belongings, homes, vehicles, and anything that they had. The future looked bleak during this time for many. In the short story, “The Lamp at Noon” by Sinclair Ross, the author develops this idea that the negative effects of the Great Depression clearly affect the future of the individuals and their children.
Back during the Revolutionary War, families were divided and many people were trying to decide one question. Should they join the side of the Patriots, Loyalists, or remain neutral? War can be a brutal, violent, and cruel way of achieving power or freedom; and in the process, many lives are lost. However, sometimes war is necessary as it helps get rid of tyranny and injustice. In the book My Brother Sam is Dead by James Lincoln Collier and Christopher Collier, a boy named Tim Meeker lives in a family where his father is a Loyalist, and his dear brother is a Patriot.
Like any other war, much of the damage and casualties resulted from civilian deaths when the raging armies swept through the colonies. The Loyalists- those who supported Great Britain and King George- and the Patriots- those who supported the principles of freedom and independence- alike were both hurt, killed, imprisoned, or otherwise dragged into the war, even when they did not join the army for either side. The Collier brothers use various instances of deaths throughout the storyline of My Brother Sam is Dead to show how the injustices and violences of war inherently manifest themselves. The irony of Jerry Sanford, Eliphalet Meeker, and Samuel Meeker’s deaths ultimately induce Tim to make the decision to remain neutral for the duration of the American Revolution.
It’s just what you do. Many people think of war as disastrous. Towns ruined, families run out of their houses, and death. Hunt applied letters from soldiers that are families and friends of the Creighton’s to show the hard times of the war.
The idea of new land to be discovered, full of plentiful crops and agricultural prosperity, now crushed by the dirt and dust found around every corner was devastating to not only the environment, but the people suffering. The already stamped down spirits of the families suffering from the effects of the Great Depression were only furthered by the lack of success in the Great Plains. “There were waves of so much dirt that, at times, there was zero visibility and everything was covered in dirt.” (americaslibrary.gov) In the literal sense, the people could no longer see what lies ahead of them, but internally, many were giving up hope on more than just their crops, but this crises ever ending.
A man’s inhumanity is known as ‘animal instinct’ as shown in “The Most Dangerous Game”, “The Sniper” and “All Quiet on the Western Front”. When put into situations they show the side of them that want to survive. In the short story ‘The Most Dangerous Game’, one man is put to his highest test of his “animal instincts”.

“I’ve been very mindful that things can change quickly, without warning...” (McCabe 14). Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird was greatly influenced by The Great Depression. There are many major historical connections to book, including the Jim Crow laws, mob mentality and the Scottsboro trials.
People rather have their safety and security taken away in order to keep their freedom. For instance, many Mexican immigrants try so hard to reach the American Dream, so they are willing to risk their lives to obtain that freedom and opportunity for education. They walk through the burning hot deserts, go through dehydration for many days, and even more hardships in order to leave their problems in Mexico and get a fresh new start at life. Even when in America, illegal Mexican immigrants face every day worrying whether they will be deported and lose their chance at having the American Dream. They sacrifice themselves and all their possessions back at Mexico just to come to America in order to obtain the freedom that citizens get.
