That is why people should stick to this quote yet don’t “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter”.

I think that this is the reason that people on live to be around 45 because of the mere similarities between the future dark age in the book and the civilizations of 200 years ago. The science was so far back that people didn’t know the difference between a cold and pneumonia. This would cause the medicine and treatments for different ailments to be subpar and just incredibly unreliable. Another piece to this puzzle is that during the actual dark ages people that lived to be 45 were considered old because of the lack of medical Intel.

The victim then said, “No voice there cried ‘stay’ for me in the empty square” (poem). The hangman said he only had the chance to keep murdering people because nobody stood up and said something about it.

Before reading “The Catcher in the Rye,” I believed that depression is completely not a choice, but after I realized that although it isn’t a choice, there are still ways of treating depression. Holden refuses to accept help from other people. As soon as I was inside, I couldn 't think of anybody to call up.
But people not only refused to believe his tales, they refused to listen” (Wiesel 6). Because Moishe was not the most popular man in town and barely had a sliver of respect from anyone in Sighet; the fact that people could not get over their views of Moishe, most of them ended up dying. If people had listened and believed them, they could have been saved a whole world of pain and suffering.

You stare into an empty abyss and feel like jumping because everything is pushing you closer to it and you feel so much pressure to make everyone happy and not screw up. That’s what it feels like when you have anxiety and most people don’t even know. Many people are unaware of what mental disorders are like because they never experience them.
