Placed there by Charles Hewes for safekeeping, the transcript recalled Vaille’s dramatic death but had been excluded from the final publication of Hewes’ autobiographical journal. James Pickering speculated that the part had been removed due to the event’s delicacy, explaining that “Hewes’s decision not to include Kiener’s story in the draft of his journal intended for posterity had to do with his sensitivity to the controversy that had arisen following Agnes Vaille’s death about where responsibility lay — responsibility not only for Agnes’s death but for the death of the unfortunate Sortland as well.” This seems to be the most legitimate of explanations, however, the piece may have also been excluded due to Kiener’s sensitivity to Vaille’s
Due to ineffective communication by Friar Lawrence, messages he attempts but does not succeed in conveying towards numerous characters jeopardizes the lives of Romeo and Juliet. Ineffective communication is conveyed clearly through the Friar’s actions when he leaves Juliet in the tomb in her time of distress, failing to ensure the delivery of the letter to Romeo thus not ensuring its safe delivery. Finally, he omitted the information of the wedding between Romeo and Juliet to their parents. Leaving Juliet in the tomb led to her death because she was clearly in a psychologically fragile state of mind. When people are fragile they do not think straight and they make rash decisions, such as suicide, that negatively affect themselves and others.

One of Holden’s biggest problems is not wanting to grow up and be an adult because he doesn’t like adults. Holden thinks all adults are phonies and doesn’t want to grow up like that, but he’s already being fake before he is an adult. When the reader discovers Holden says one thing but does the other the reader learns that Holden is an unreliable narrator because of his phoniness. Next the reader sees Holden’s authenticity appears to be more confusing because although he's reaching out to people he's still not being honest with himself.
This is all Trip’s fault. But like a thousand times before, I can’t make myself say it. I let the proof that was all over my body fade away”(Breaking Beautiful 316). Allie doesn’t want to tell anybody about the abuse because she doesn’t want to speak badly about the “golden boy” of the town and it gives the town’s people a reason for her to be the killer of Trip. As Jaycee talks to Agent Herrera about Rachel’s death, Jaycee thinks, “I think about telling him everything, about the text, about the old house; maybe if I tell him, this
Crooks cannot have friends because of the deep racism that took place during this time which makes him lonely and have hatred towards “white” people. However, he decides to risk the punishment of violating the rule of racial segregation when, “Crooks scowled, but Lennie’s disarming smile defeated him. ‘Come on in and set a while,’ Crooks said. ‘Long as you won’t get out and leave me alone, you might as well set down.’ His tone was a little more friendly.” (69) Crooks decided to change his tone with Lennie when he realized he wasn’t going to leave. Loneliness is a big issue within Crooks because of his skin color which separates him from the others on the ranch.
Many people think that it was hubris that caused his death but I just don't think that hubris is a logical explanation. He didn't know the truth about his life, his life and his actions were already predetermined, and he was just living life with curiosity. The first reason that hubris was not the reason Oedipus died was because he didn't know the truth of anything. He didn't know that he killed the king, let alone knew that Laius was his father. On page three Oedipus says “whoever he was that killed the king may readily wish to dispatch me with his murderous hand, so helping the dead king i help myself”(3).
Her story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” brings up the questions, could the villain, The Misfit, also be a victim? Or are the only victims the grandmother and her family? I was able to see The Misfit as being a victim also; although the story does not directly describe him as a victim, I can infer by some of his comments made that he may have been a “victim” in his own life. At one point in the story he talks about how the “head doctor” told him that he killed his father, but he knows that he did no such thing- so maybe he was accused of something he didn’t really do (pg. 130).
Justice should always be upheld because without justice there is no way to live peacefully without constant fear of being wrongfully accused and punished out of the blue. We know the villagers act without justice when they attack the monster. “He is pursued by the ignorant villagers, who think he is evil and dangerous because he is ugly and makes ugly noises.” The lack of justice is shown through the reason they attack which is based on his appearance. They also don’t even try to communicate with the monster to gain a better understanding of the situation which means that they chose to stay ignorant. Ignorance should be avoided in judgement and the choice of judgement is what can decide one’s fate and that decision of fate shouldn’t be left to people who do not truly know the situation beyond their own
You can see it as the mayor is helping everyone he is trying to make the city more presentable and he’s making a shelter for the numerous of people without a home to stay in for the reason he claims to be because the weather has been awfully bad and especially recently. Although it maybe true that the conductors of this event is ashamed to have homeless people presented outside on the streets, but some people have disagreed with this statement saying that the staff had informed the poor that there was a shelter nearby and that relocating was in their best interest-it was the only way to really ensure their safety during the establishment of new buildings. I have read an article dedicated to this event and it shows multiple perspectives of what they thought of the homeless needing to move from their spot. The article states that the homeless people are being ordered to move due to the city development. However the team carrying out the service denies that that’s the reason why they are moving them from the place they were currently at.
Mini-Research Essay “To his surprise, his father began very carefully to direct the needle into the top of the new child 's forehead, puncturing the place where the fragile skin pulsed.” (Lowry 149). In Lois Lowry’s The Giver, this is the way people of the community die, it seems unusual but people today choose to die of Euthanasia as well.

In The Giver, Jonas believes that releasing or Euthanasia is bad and the wrong way to kill someone but to other people they believe it is a peaceful way to die.
