She is aware that there is nothing she did to cause the cancer but she only tries to decrease the pain she believes that she is somehow causing her family. She gives in to death and gives up rather than make a profound impact on the people around her. She begins to explain this as she narrates “Late in the winter of my seventeenth year, my mother decided I was depressed, presumably because I rarely left the house, spent quite a lot of time in bed, read the same book over and over, ate infrequently, and devoted quite a bit of my abundant free time thinking about death,” Green, p.78. She realizes that she spends precious time obsessing about death, she is wasting her life grieving about something she cannot control, predict or change.
Linda, who is John’s elderly mother, was yearning to see the man who abandoned her and their child while Tomakin himself completely forgot or dismissed the existence of his family. When Linda first confronts Tomakin she enthusiastically expects him to somewhat remember him only to be tragically disappointed by the fact that she is completely unrecognizable to him; having changed due to age, Tomakin refers Linda as a “‘monstrous practical joke’” (Huxley 150). Ultimately, this is used to express how, in this society, women are seen as having no value after reaching an age of being elderly or after no longer holding physical beauty. While the definition of beauty differs depending on standards, the society of Brave New World holds physical beauty to be incredibly important much like many civilizations.

People in our town, remembering how old lady Wyatt, her great-aunt, had gone completely crazy at last” (Faulkner 80).

When people were active so many lives were lost. In the text, “Resistance During the Holocaust,” it states that “However, the risk of resisting Nazi policies were grave; often an act of resistance by one person would mean the death of many others” (paragraph 5). If all Jews would have fought who knows where we could be today. Maybe they would have won their fight but many more lives would have been lost, but maybe no one would even know they fought. However, some may say that writing and keeping records may have never seen the light of day.
The reason I believe this is because if something bad is happening to me and I gave up I think that it would be more painful giving up then praying and believing in God to come help me and deliver me from evil like He says he will in the bible. God works in many ways that people may not understand but in the end, I know He does it for a reason. The Holocaust was a horrible time and I don’t think anyone would want to back to the time period. I think the Jews were saved because of their power of praying.
