Furthermore, these Rangers hoped for missions and war, but nothing qualified for war, as they yearned for battle. During this scene in the book, I fully understood the fact that the Rangers were different from the Deltas. However, I completely disagree with the fact that coming out of high school and having a positive attitude, without having a real battle combat experience, is a great idea to pursue them and place them in war. Their emotions during a real battle could affect their performance, it happens to every soldier to feel fear, because the result is between life and death. On the other hand, this scene caused me confusion is the actions of the Rangers, that seems incompetent during a battle.
Fear of shame not only motivates men to go to war but also affects soldiers’ relationships with each other once there. Concern about being accepted in the war, which might seem in the end an unimportant part given the chances of death and importance of staying together as a “team” during this time. The emotional burden was not just during the war it was also after the war that all these memories came back to them. When these memories come back it brings sadness to them thinking about all the people they lost through out their time

Peers that Paul knew like Albert Kropp before the war realties to comradeship because they both had to fight alongside with each other. Another way the soldiers showed comradeship was protecting each other during combat. Paul was trapped in a shell hole with enemies shooting low from the trenches, but when he heard his friends he felt safer. "Now I hear muffled voices.
This causes him to feel like he is stuck in an endless cycle with his teaching. The kids end up just like the previous group and the cycle continues. This relates to my Grandpa’s life as he was drafted into the military, and he didn’t want to be in the military so he went to the local navy office and tried to get out of it. He learned that he couldn’t and he accepted that fact and did what was required of him. This parallels Grant’s struggle of being stuck in the same cycle as America just keeps going through the cycle of war.
Ned if affected by war in some very unfortunate ways.During training Ned had to go though many things.In the book Ned stated that”What you did in boot camp did not have to make sense.You just had to do it.”(60).I think that Ned meant that even if you didn’t understand why you had to do it you were expected to.Not only did Ned have a hard time adjusting to bootcamp but he had an even harder time adjusting to war.During war Ned lost a lot of people he knew and as it would to anyone else 's it hurt him.During war Ned was shot in the shoulder.Being shot impacted him a lot because he was unable to fight for a while.Ned described how he felt and told about how he couldn 't raise his arm.Ned was also upset and very much so scared when his friend Georgia Boy was shot.Ned explained his fear for his friend’s life by saying”I realized I was the one doing the yelling as I pressed my hands down onto Georgia Boy’s neck,trying to stem the flow of blood”(192-193).Ned was definitely changed by that and it surely didn 't help his experiance in war.Ned went through some hard times in war but he still did
He is excited to join and to serve his country, little did he know that war is an aberration. His whole world turns upside down; experiencing grief, and terror. This caused him to become very bewildered. "The wisest were just the poor and simple people. They knew the war to be a misfortune, whereas those who were better off, and should have been able to see more clearly what the consequences would be, were beside themselves with joy.

Patients in these places are fighting every day to regain some sense of sanity or reality that they lost along the way. From the outside, they can seem insane and often without hope, but that typically comes from misunderstanding them because of poor communication. In One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, author Ken Kesey depicts the lengths the human mind will go to in order to survive and how inhumane reigns will fail in the
Everytime he learns something new about the past he is overcome by the will to share all of his mental experiences with the rest of the population, but he knows he is not able to do this. His awareness about what could be versus what is cause him more and more heartache every moment. On top of this The Giver begins to transfer “the painful memories” to Jonas where he learns “physical and emotional pain experienced through injury, loss, grief, rage, and cruelty” (Zirkle). He goes through “suffering” and “even Violence” when he receives a memory of a dying soldier on a battlefield (Chamberlain). The effect that this particular memory has on Jonas is portrayed through this sentence “overwhelmed by pain, he laid there in the fearsome stench for hours, listened to the men and
All this leads to one way. The pressure group make people to made many changes in their bodies, which they never thought they were going to do it one day in their life. The peer pressure can be very difficult to resist, if we lack confidence in ourselves. If we are not firm in what we want to achieve in our lives, and we get to hear a lot of people who only serve to put bad things in our minds, we are not going to go well and we will end up doing things we do not want to do. Such as the plastic surgeries that eventually comes to harm our health, because it has high effect.
