In addition, the article, “Panic Rises in Saigon, but the Exits are Few”, states, "'I called hoping that I could speak to her in one more time,' he added. Now I will never talk to her again'" (Butterfield 55). This quote demonstrates how this person lost his family because they had to leave while he was at work.

This is what i observed in paragraph 2 of , "A long way gone, "when it states, "Why have i been the only one to survive the war?
For me, Justine is the biggest victim so far. Considering her background and the hardship she went through at an early age and being neglected by her family was indeed a tragic scenario; even though she felt love and comfort in the Frankenstein 's home. What 's really sad was when she was accused of killing William and was executed. Apparently, Victor knew his brother was killed by the monster, yet still he couldn 't do anything to save the girl 's life because he was scared and don 't want people to know he had created an awful
“My working week and my Sunday rest" tells us that he spent a lot of his time with him and that without him he has no longer has control in his life and he has lost purpose and reason.” Because of his death, his world is now falling apart. “Pour away the ocean" could convey how he feels, that he is drowning in his grief, and pouring away the grief will allow him to carry on with his life. His view of the world has now changed, and it has become a sinister and lonely place. Also, the last stanza is a metaphor for how his partner 's death was a waste of beauty. “The stars are not wanted
“sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all of the lives I’m not living.” (pg. 113) Thomas is depressed. He lost his loved ones in a bombing, and he’s the only one that survived. It causes him a lot of pain and suffering. “It’s a rule that we never listen to sad music, we made that rule early on, songs are as sad as the listener, we hardly ever listen to music.”
Bobby’s past and poor decisions have led to him losing everything including the love of his life Arlene and the promise of an American future. All relationships have a past that foreshadows the future and some cant handle what happens to disrupt that future. Ford shows this within Bobby who can’t hold himself accountable and has to blame everything but himself including where he lives “the west is fucked up I don’t know why we came out here”
The Great Depression and the Jim Crow south affected Maycomb Alabama, and other communities across America in many ways in the book To Kill A Mockingbird for example it says that, Maycomb was a “tired old town...there was no hurry, for there was nowhere to go, nothing to buy and no money to buy it with, nothing to see...” and this sentence shows what really happened during The Great Depression. The Great Depression changed the United States of America in many ways one of which is the economy and in maycomb this affected everyone especially the Cunninghams who were afraid to take anything because they knew they couldn’t pay it back. It also affected the Ewells a lot as they have absolutely nothing left not only because of the depression because
“I spent three days of that week sitting with him before he died…” (Zusak 467). Michael, depressed and melancholy, returns home to deliver the news to his mother, Frau Holtzapfel. The devastation following the loss of her son was apparent, which only causes Michael to feel guilty. The loss of his brother, on top of how guilty he feels for living while his brother died, overwhelms him. Michael deals with this by committing suicide.
After being rejected by his family due to his metamorphosis, he has no reason to live and his humanity started to disintegrate. Both Gregor's work and his family were the causes of his dehumanization after his metamorphosis. In my opinion, the leading factor was his parents and how they dealt with his metamorphosis. They do not accept him, they do not care for him, they do not love him. “In front of the monstrous creature I refuse to pronounce my brothers name, and therefore I must say: we have to try to get rid of it” (Kafka 47).
I am sure he knew the reasonbut did not want to admit to me. He asked me to comeback home a couple of times but I was not trusting that anything would change and within three months he had someone living with him. I had been talking to him all along hoping I would hear some indication that he would get help and then I would be willing to work on things but once he moved in this “friend”he had nothing to do with me. This went on for a while until he figured out that hisrelationship with hisnew “friend” was not going to work and then of course I started hearing from him again. At this point I knew the relationship and trust was beyond repair so I was not interested.My ex-husband has done other things since the divorce to try and get back at me and put a wedge in other relationships I have with my family.
