100 Words1 Page

Sacrifice; some people are killed for the good or benefit of others. Other times, it might not even be a human being that is being offered but a thing or a plant. In the stories “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson and “The Rain Came” by Grace Ogot, two different women are meant to be sacrifice for and by their people. Even though the two stories focus on very similar themes and the main characters end up facing the same main conflict, the settings and the characters are quite different. The settings in each of the stories are unique and distinctive.
