According to Document D, “The Spartans learned to read and write for purely practical reasons: but all other forms of education they banned from the country,...” If an man wasn’t interested in fighting and wanted a strong education, he was simply out of luck since in Sparta, killing others was more important than schooling.

Then Claudius tells Hamlet to move on and that mourning for this long is unmanly and he should move on because everybody dies.

Rathband was continuously exposed to and in direct line of coming into contact with offenders and always held the possibility of being victimised; very little can be said in the precipitation of Rathband’s initial incident with Moat which blinded him, his suicide attempt, while being solely precipitated by himself, also was a slow degradation from coping to his demise. By turning down the options for private therapy and help from the Northumberland Police, Rathband obviously failed to recover from his initial incident with was further exacerbated by the dissolution of his marriage, thus taking away the higher chance for him to live as close to a normal life as a victim of an offense. Tragic as Rathband’s story may be, he still failed to do his part to try and recover from his victimisation as well as created further reasoning for him to not be able to cope such as having the numerous affairs, making suicide threats to his latest mistress and making threatening phone calls
Rowland Reflection JournalRowland, RubyColorado Christian UniversitySession 1-Instructor Sarah WightmanJournal Rowland Reflection Journal2AroundJuly of 2017, after 18 years of marriage I divorced, I was devastated. My husband was not a bad man and had been raised a man of God but somewhere down the line alcohol won him over. He had an affair previously and I took him back as he promised he would seek help. After 7 years I realized that this was never going to happen, in fact it had worsened and his health and behaviors began to deteriorate. I was getting to the point to where it consumed me with worry about his health and my/our future and frankly I just didn’t want to be around him when he was like that.

David had also lost all his money in a bad investment and was unemployed at the age of 38. His marriage underwent a strain and when his wife suggested a temporary separation, David became very upset and saddened. He left his parents’ home one day took a shot gun with him and killed himself. My opinion on this documentary is the parents wanted the best for their child, however, they did not think about the long term effects not just physically but also emotionally and mentally. There was no need to castrate David when they could have reconstructed his penis like they eventually did anyway.

During those years, he only thought about Martha, not about his men or the war. It all changed when Ted Lavender died in front of him when he was daydreaming about her. Since then, he decided to forget about her for the sake of his duty and for his self-conscience. “… But I reminded himself that my obligation was not to be loved but to lead… and because I realized she did not loved me and never would.” That day he burned everything, all the letters and photographs, but still that feeling never went away. Today he carries another photo of her, a recent one, in his
Because the men had seen so much in Vietnam and because of how the war was fought (Guerrilla warfare), they had little to no remorse when gunning down children and woman. They were so tired of fighting the “unknown enemy,” this can be seen in the soldier 's testimonies, “I didn’t discriminate between individuals in the village, sir. They were all the enemy, they were to be destroyed, sir.” (141) However, John never intended to kill the innocent. He saw the same soldiers that he fought with for the past few months brutally massacring the villagers that were trying to flee for their lives. This was the climax of the war for John, he would forever be changed by what he saw in My Lai and would take many months in order to get over what happened.
Her father, Nao Kao Lee, was especially enraged on two occasions. One, when the doctors were performing a spinal tap on Lia, he said that was when “Lia was lost”, as the Hmong believed that procedure would cripple her in this life and her future lives . The second occasion was when he misunderstood that he had to sign a paper that stated that Lia would die in two hours, when it fact “released in two hours” was what was written. “In the Hmong moral code, foretelling a death is strongly taboo.”, and so Nao Kao grabbed his daughter and ran. He was caught afterwards, but these scenarios show that the Hmong had a strong sense of values that the doctors weren’t able to understand and both parties were at a disadvantage.
