Romeo and Juliet is a story of hasty decisions. The young couple must quickly decide to get married, how to act after Romeo is exiled, and whether or not to take their own lives. Many of these decisions are made under the guidance of the children’s mentors, Friar Laurence and the Nurse. Throughout this tragedy, Friar Laurence and the Nurse are the only adults that Romeo and Juliet seem to feel that they can trust and are in turn some of the main people that influence the outcome of the play. The Nurse and Friar Laurence play very similar roles, both in the play and the lives of the children, but the ways in which they advise and influence the children include more differences.

In my opinion the message of the story was never give up no matter how had the situation gets. Elie went through a lot, but he never completely gave up on God or his father. He would get frustrated with both, but he didn’t forget about his morals. The most memorable part of the novel was when Elie’s dad died and his reaction to the event.
