At the end Paul realizes that everything flashes before his eyes after all his friends had died,” I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. I see how people are set against one another…” (Remarque, 263). The main character, Paul reaches the point where he understands that he has no knowledge of the meaning of life.

In recent years, our culture has busied itself with work, technology, and parenting. Parents today have micromanaged their children’s time more than ever, a parenting style known as helicopter parenting. In youth sports alone, participation has grown astronomically (Haidt and Skenazy).

In the Victorian era (1837-1901) death came early and often due to high infant mortality rates, death in childbirth, poor hygiene, and contagious diseases (Jalland 4-5). Furthermore, most died at home among family, giving people more exposure to death (Henger 6). A stereotypical view of death in the nineteenth century was one of the ‘beautiful death.’
On every Father’s Day, “Fox News takes a poll and the results of every year is that more than half of the 7,000 mothers polled feel more stressed out by their husbands than they do by their kids” (Venker).

On one hand there is a ninety-four year old man or woman functioning like a 65 year old (still working and requiring very little assistance). While on the other hand there is a 65-100 year old elderly patient dying a slow death from their multiple morbidities. The story gave an eye opening realism of how the elderly will be mismanaged if healthcare doesn’t start initiating a plan. During the PBS (2006) documentary on Living Old, Dr. Kass states “The bad news is that the price that many people are going to be paying for an extra decade of healthy longevity is up to another decade of anything but healthy longevity. … We 've not yet begun to face up to what this means in human terms”.
