Revenge Isn’t so Sweet “While seeking revenge, dig two graves - one for yourself,” says Douglas Horton, an academic leader. A Long Way Gone shows us a story of revenge when a young boy gets swept up in a war after his family is killed at only twelve years old. Ishmael Beah in the novel A Long Way Gone illustrates that revenge is never the answer when he joins the army out of spite, loses his humanity in the war and struggles to forgive himself after his journey. Initially, Ishmael joins the army when he learns of his family’s death. He believed joining the army would get revenge for his family.
Unfortunately, he was unable to see his family due to rebels attacking. His mental state was heavily damaged at that point. Waiting years to see your family again just to see them killed is truly depressing. When Ishmael started to train as a boy soldier, he soon became determined to avenge his family.

Many murders surround a husband or wife who can’t bear the thought of their spouse leaving them, but what about the children? Long Beach mail carrier, Joseph Warren Duer (5/5/1895-1/10/1929), suffocated his two baby daughters in their bed rather than surrender their custody to his wife of four years. Had Joseph Duer hated his wife Dorothy so much that he would kill his children rather than let them be with their mother? It was a well thought out act, authorities surmised. Investigators believed Duer used some sort of an anesthetic to kill the children, Dorothy (12/20/1926-1/9/1929), age 2½ years, and Charlotte (3/10/1928-1/9/1929), age 9 months.
