And if you ignore the Holocaust and other genocides, then it will become as if it never happened and all the people who were killed and who fought never existed. It becomes so that the people who worked 6 million people to death because they were Jews got a free pass from society, and if these things are ignored it becomes that we are guaranteed to relive the past. If we let children believe that even the people who sent Jews to work camps can be forgotten, then they will learn that no matter what they do wrong no one will ever remember
Reading Epicurus’ “Letter to Menoeceus”, I will argue that a reason to not fear death is that we do not exist anymore after we die. When we are dead, we will not exist or experience anything. Death is the destination of our life journey on this planet. When we are dead, we are no longer physically present on this planet. To us, everything is over.
There are no words to describe how hard it is too loose someone you love, whether it is a child or a parent or a friend.

But if the dot-marked card is pulled, each family member draws from an equal amount of slips to decide which of them is to never see another day again. Every year this takes place, someone chosen to die, and no one has ever questioned it.

The setting of the story comes into play starting with the first sentence.

Even those that were once close to him, he has pushed to the side as just another subject and could care less about what happens to them as long as he remains king.
