“Yes, you can lose somebody overnight, yes, your whole life can be turned upside down. Life is short. It can come and go like a feather in the wind.”- Shania Twain. At times, it appears unviable for one’s life to transform overnight in just a few hours. However, this is something various individuals experienced in soul and flesh as they were impinged by those atrocious memoirs of the Holocaust. In addition, the symbolism portrayed throughout the novel Night, written by Elie Wiesel, presents an effective fathoming of the feelings and thoughts of what it’s like to undergo such an unethical circumstance. For instance, nighttime plays a symbolic figure throughout the progression of the story as its used to symbolize death, darkness of the soul,
But Miki also employs an example from Kogawa 's Obasan. He acknowledges that in the novel, Aunt Emily is able to see through the discourse of war and national security and detect the ambiguity of the term ' 'evacuation ' ' (52): ' ' ' 'It was an evacuation all right, ' ' Aunt Emily said. ' ' Just plopped here in the wilderness. Flushed out of Vancouver. Like dung drops. Maggot bait ' ' (Kogawa 139). Here, Emily not only picks up upon the euphemism of the term (Miki 50) but also expresses the implications that the relocation of Japanese Canadian presents, namely that Japanese Canadians are seen as a lower kind of people, which is also reflected in Emily 's description of the internment

Salva experienced one of the worst things that could happen to a kid, his family being torn apart by war. The war took place between June 5, 1983 and January 9, 2005. It took mostly in South Sudan because the muslim government wanted the tribes to practice the muslim religion.

The three biggest survival factors that stood out the most were family, persistence and teamwork. Family because
Seven million three-hundred thousand Children nationally are affected with parents having to be in jail for days, weeks, months, and even years. For ten days I was affected by my father being in jail at Leavenworth County Jail. To some, this is nothing but to my family this was a big deal. Not only was he gone for ten days, which was longer then he’d ever been gone before, but we had to take him there and watch as he walked away from his wife, his kids, and his freedom.
It was April 2016 when we were sitting at the dinner table late at night with our family friends. My mom’s phone began to ring. When I saw her reaction, I knew immediately. Her face was pale and she held her hand to her head in disbelief. I knew it was grandpa. Although we knew the death of my grandpa was coming, I never actually wanted to experience the loss. I stood in front of the mirror, staring at myself, crying continuously.
Some people attend parties, feasts, or even carnivals for Thanksgiving. On the other hand, I am kind of different. I love to spend time with my family making arts and crafts. My mom usually makes a feast at home and cooks my favorite Indian dishes. My parents, my sister and I find some type of entertainment to get our family to spend time together. I text my friends who are in different states and I spend some time with them on Facetime too.
I Moshe, was walking home one day all depressed and angry on a sunny day. While I’m walking I can hear Germans whispering “look at the jew walk what a disgrace” I fight the urge to not say anything and just continue walking home. As I’m walking home at these

When I woke up I saw that the flowers needed some watering but then I just thought Ali or Hassan would do them today. It was pretty silent, I could hear a bee buzzing around my ear. It was making me so annoyed to the point where I just wanted to squish the pesky animal. Amir had squatted next to me, he looked very nervous, I could see the look on his face. I remember the times when we used to garden together, but that had slowly died down. I miss it yet find that it’s amusing to plant by myself. I just always see him reading, he’s never playing with Hassan. I’m worried he’s growing out of the things he loved in his childhood. I wish my son could be more like a proper man, tougher, stronger and courageous. I wish he would just stop reading and get his head out of his books and start to act like a real man. He is always being a coward and backing down, that’s not what a real man would do. I’ve tried everything that I can do to help him but nothing seems to make sense to him. Hassan is a great example for Amir of how to be a real man.
