The story of Ronald Gene Simmons. On the 22nd of December, 1987 the worst mass murder in Arkansas history took place. A man by the name of Ronald Gene Simmons went on a killing spree. He started off by killing his wife, kids, and his three year old granddaughter, but it didn’t stop there. He killed his family and quite a few harmless townspeople because he went insane, because why else would you kill harmless people?
In the Holocaust, Hitler “…made it clear he will annihilate all Jews…” and that he would stop when every Jew was killed (Wiesel 80). This certain hatred toward the Jews prompted millions of lives to be lost with Hitler giving no consideration to newborns and children. His cold, dark heart had no room for sympathy or remorse, being that one of his twisted goals was to murder every Jew he could. Additionally, Vlad the Impaler got the nickname of “Dracula” for his bloodlust and cruel methods of dealing with people that did him wrong. Vlad was known to have his victims “disemboweled, beheaded and skinned or boiled alive” whenever he often saw fit.

He had this responsibility because he made a promise. He had done what he could to keep Lennie out of trouble, by telling him to stay quiet, and not to talk to Curley’s wife. But, he couldn’t control himself. It was up to George to protect Lennie, and he did this by taking his life. Surely, dying in a second was a better outcome for Lennie than being beat, hung, and finally dying after being tortured.
The suicide of Creon son already made Creon realize that he made a mistake convicting Antigone. Haemon's death symbolizes Creon's mistake of convicting Antigone.

Who knows, they may be sending us away for our own good.” Some Jews believed that Hitler was trying to protect them from the War. Others thought that they were being taken away so that the soldiers could steal their valuables and jewelry.
Personal Reactions: I liked how Lev’s character was developed throughout the story. Lev’s main focus in the beginning of the book is to escape from his “kidnappers” and be tithed like his parents wanted, but he is so focused on obeying his parents that he doesn’t notice the people who he thinks kidnapped him are trying to save him from being unwound.
