He goes and finds out that the enemy sniper he shot was his brother. I believe the theme of the story ¨The Sniper¨ by Liam O'Flaherty is that fear can lead to destructive decisions. The theme that fear can lead to destructive decisions is introduced when he kills the man in the turret and kills the woman. He shoots the man and woman because he is scared of what the man and woman could do to him. In the story, it tells you how he shoots them.

Personification deeply shows Esperanza’s perspective because it describes things she's in a stronger way. By her comparing something she sees as a person and not just object Cisneros shows that Esperanza has strong feelings about that item.

The police soon realized Douglas had committed the murder. He was soon confronted and chased by the police, on attempt to escape Douglas was hit by an oncoming train and died. Many people still believe that his spirit comes back on Halloween night. It is simple to discuss the legend of the Bunny Man as imaginative fiction, but evidence leads us to believe Douglas had killed many people and left them dangling from branches by the Colchester overpass near the bridge. I believe that Douglas Grifton had committed the brutal 1970s murders and I still believe his spirit still lingers by the over pass, and will use research to support the legend of the Bunny Man.
