From “The Cat in the Hat” to “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!”, Dr. Seuss inspires people of all ages through his humorous approach to life and its many challenges. His story, “The Lorax” even takes on a more ethical approach by describing how businesses and large factories are destroying the environment and kicking many animals out of their homelands. While it was written back in 1971, the book is still relevant today and inspires many to help save the environment. His first book, “And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street,” was inspired by a street in his hometown of Springfield, Massachusetts and even though many turned it down at first, it went on to become quite popular (Fensch, 2014).

It may seem horrible to see when the soldiers were reduced to remove bandages from the dead for the wounded, but they repeatedly reused bandages because they had quickly run out of the fresh bandages as historian Robert Ferrell presented it in his book Five Days in October (30). It also true how both show off how carrier pigeons were used to transfer messages from the frontlines back to HQ when out of range from telegraph wire. Major Whittlesey did release his last homing bird named Cher Ami to tell HQ to stop the shelling. Despite the fact the pigeon was hit by multiple German bullets, it was able to reach the HQ and deliver the Whittlesey’s message.
Was atropine poisoning the cause of Arthur Dimmesdale’s death? In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter one of the three main characters’, Arthur Dimmesdale dies suddenly, although it is not explained in the book exactly how he died, many have theories. In an Article written by Dr. Jemshed A. Khan in the New England Journal of Medicine, he claims that Chillingworth purposely gave doses of atropine to Dimmesdale. Of course Chillingworth was "a man of skill in all Christian modes of physical science” (Hawthorne 65) he was also quite the brainer when it came to “medicinal roots and herbs” (Hawthorne 65), he was a physician, right?

An influenza outbreak occurs in the middle of March and many get sick and Doc steps up and helps the sick out even though he is not supposed to practice medicine, “It was not his fault that everyone in the Row came to him for medical advice. Before he knew it he found himself running from shanty to shanty taking temperatures, giving physics, borrowing and delivering blankets and even taking food from house to house where mothers looked at him with inflamed eyes from their beds, and thanked him and put the full responsibility for their children’s recovery on him. (Steinbeck 93). Doc was not supposed to practice medicine but he does and helps the sick people out because he cares about the well-being or others.
200 years ago Edgar Allen Poe wrote the story “ The Masque of the Red Death”, comparing both the red death, and Ebola from what I read Poe was not talking about Ebola in the story. For instance the symptoms of both diseases have common affects on people when they come in contact with disease. Poe wrote the story 200 years ago, at Prince Prospero , but Ebola has only been around for a short period of time. For example both infections scared everyone, and the people isolated themselves from the sick. Based on what I read Poe was not talking about Ebola in the story.
The letter also says” I suggest Poe got rabies from his cat” if this is true it would make sense because when he left his cat he started to get sick. The reason people think Poe did from rabies is because the evidence makes sense. In the letter Dr. Snodgrass said “on leaving Richmond Poe already had a fever.”. this tells us that he was sick so he couldn’t have died from alcoholism.
