Mortality is one of the hardest concepts to explain to a child because to them, life 's possibilities are endless, so life does not end either. When my mom 's father died, I was six. I barely knew what was happening, let alone what death was. To me, the grandfather that I saw rarely became the grandfather that I never saw. My parents hid their grief as far as I was aware.
In Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” it is strongly shown to be the 'mournful, never-ending remembrance ' for his lost love Lenore. Love can bring you happiness or sometimes it can bring you heart break. For Poe, it was both. Learning to deal with your broken heart is a self choice. You can either deal with it and become stronger from it, or you can be a bum and let it destroy you.

Holden got to the point maybe because of anger issues and him not knowing how to cope with the death of his brother. Holden is very young when he loses his brother, which could be the reason he does not know how to deal with the situation correctly.
In a span of 10 years, the Holocaust killed over 7 million people, that’s just as much as the population of Hong Kong. In the book Night, by Elie Wiesel, Wiesel shares his experience on how he survived the Holocaust and what he went through. How he dealt with the horrors and even to how he felt of his dad’s death and how he saw himself after it was all over. As he tried to publish it he was constantly turned down due to the fact of how horrid and truful it was. He still tried and tried until it was finally published.
Gabe Tonucci 8/20/2015 “These days I live in three worlds: my dreams, and the experiences of my new life, which trigger memories from the past”(Beah 20). After a month of living in the relative safety of New York City, Ishmael Beah haunted by the events that he witnessed and took part in during the war. No one in New York could possibly understand what he had to go through, leaving all these thoughts trapped inside of his head. Not helping his situation is the fact that every night he tosses and turns from having nightmares we witnessed the RUF preform and the horrible things he did himself. He is a young man divided against himself, as his country had been divided against itself - in both cases, due to the rebels' violent actions.
Based on a personal experience and novel by Steve Lopez, the film“ The Soloist” brings about a few social issues dealing with caring for those with a mental illness. For the purpose of this assignment, the focus will be on the main issue in the film, being that one of the main characters, Nathaniel Ayers, developed schizophrenia as a young adult. Having never received any kind of treatment or public assistance for the issue at hand, he ended up dropping out of Julliard, abandoning his family, and became homeless on the streets of Los Angeles.

For the first execution, he was accused of stealing during an alert. When he was put up on the gallows, no one seemed to care. It had been so normal that people were being killed daily that they grew accustom to it. Elie Wielsel on the other hand still had some difficulties with it. He had gotten used to the thousands dying in the crematories, but this one still “overwhelmed him”(Wiesel 59), as he put it.
Her sister Margot had died a few days before. Anne was one of 1 million Jewish children who died in the Holocaust. I always wondered why the word "Holocaust" was used in relation to Nazi concentration camps and found out that it is a Greek term used to describe the violent deaths of large groups of people or huge massacre.
