Every person has regrets. Someone that they wished they had said something to before a divide, or something they would have done to change the outcome. An important part of life is learning to move on from those and accept where you are now; this is something that Gatsby never learned how to do. Gatsby spent this whole book chasing after Daisy, and is a very relatable character to most since every one of us is chasing something. However, Gatsby is chasing someone he’s lost forever, and you can’t necessarily fix the past as Gatsby wanted.

As an escape, I along with many others looked for refuge at a camp, resulting in me leaving behind my family. All was well at the camp but one day, while I was outside the camp taking a stroll like I do every day, I was captured by a solider and brought to a nearby pond.

The only thing to do is run. Sledge describes his first reaction of his team getting slaughtered as “A wild desperate feeling of anger, frustration and pity gripped me. It was an emotion that always would torture my mind when I saw men trapped and was unable to do anything but watch as they were hit. My own plight forgotten momentarily, I felt sickened to the depths of my soul. I asked God, ‘why, why, why?’ I turned my face away and wished that I were imagining it all.
It also included Factories, schools, universities, hospitals, and all other private institutions were shut down; all their former owners and employees were murdered along with their extended families. It was common for people to be shot just for speaking a foreign language or wearing glasses as these were traits that were associated with the West.

These people will wonder where God is and pray for Him to come.
Eliezer was very close to god and wanted to learn anything he could. Once he was taken away from his home, he began losing faith in god and lost all hope. Eliezer stopped praying and he believed that god was unjust. Eliezer felt as though god was uncaring and so he stopped believing in him. His view on god changed juristically throughout Night.
By the end of the book Elie 's faith in God or in anything for that matter is dead. The metaphor "from the depths of the mirror, a corpse was contemplating me" used in the last few sentences of the book supports the claim that Elie 's faith has ceased to exist. The corpse that Elie is seeing is himself because he was so severely starved, but it also can symbolically represent his faith.

Just like Coates I have always feared not having control over my body and always being around violence, I could not escape.
