In our culture, it’s common for families to be depressed when their loved one passes away. They love them, and have a bond with that person, so funerals in our culture are always a very emotional and hard time for people. And I feel like it would be even worse to have a funeral for a child who passed, because they didn’t get to experience what the real world is like. They were still in their young and innocent days. Death hits us hard in our culture and deeply hurts the family members who have the deal with the passing of their loved one.
There are many causes for depression. Some causes are death or a loss of someone close to a person can cause serious grief or sadness. A band named Daughter wrote “Youth” which is a song about getting hurt by or losing someone or something that she had loved in her past. People she has loved often leave which hurts her because she loved them. In the book, Catcher in the Rye, Holden is in the same situation as the writer of the song and people he is often close with leave him.
A Perez exhibits the effects that Bekah receives from the war. “Custis was dead. She believed it. She had seen war face to face, heard it, smelled it, tasted its bitter smoke. Now she touched it, bending to pick up a broken branch, wrapping it with her handkerchief.”
She suffered the sadness of not having a true mother and the meanness of her brothers and sisters and rose above it to be kind to everyone and to work hard and do everything to her best ability. This showed amazing strength like Mulan had in her battles against the enemy.
Not only women here have the gender roles. Macduff's family is killed and it is looked down on when men cry, yet here it is more emotionally taken by the audience than when Lady Macbeth gender roles are flipped. Having Macduff be manly man yet cry at the death of his family makes him more of a ‘well rounded character’ and lady macbeth's character is more ‘damaged’. The end of Lady Macbeth's power left so broken he had little response to it.
The other mothers are described by the poet as having “long ceased to care”, suggesting that they have tragically given up their jobs of motherhood, heartbreakingly accepting the death of those close to them. However this is contrasted with this mother’s lovingness and refusal to accept the death of her son, portrayed through the short and sharp phrase “but not this one”. Ugly, disturbing, and brutal images of camp-life such as, “the air was heavy
“Now piercèd is her virgin zone; she feels the foe within it. She hears a broken amorous groan, the panting lover 's fainting moan, just in the happy minute”(Jon W.). Women are raised in a battlefield; they are taught to rely on men to protect them because they cannot protect themselves. This is an insult to many women everywhere, and it is a problem with society. If women were portrayed and viewed more independent, we could change the world we live in.
By the end of Confronting Elderly Abuse in America, I was crying and upset. I felt so bad for the victims, and I couldn’t believe that so many people could hurt the elderly. I believe the state stated in the documentary was that nearly 90% are abused by someone they know. It’s devastating to know that those being abused put so much trust in the ones they love without knowing their loved ones are abusing their power. Although, the majority of elderly abuse cases are caused by a loved one or caregiver there are those cases that person abused was picked at random like husband’s grandma.
After all the pain Felicite endured and all the death she shed tears over only for her to die alone, evokes sadness in the reader. It seems as if all Felicite knew was suffering for she was beat as a child, heartbroken, and out lived everyone she loved. It is hard to see how Flaubert’s “A Simple Heart” is a triumph where Felicite actually ascends through the story. It is truly amazing how Felicite starts out as a farm girl after losing her family; she has nothing to her name, nothing she truly loves or cares about, yet somehow throughout this tragic story manages to lose it
When one of Paul’s best friends Kemmerich dies, Paul is the one who has to tell his mom about the bad news. One quote that points to this is, “I must go and see Kemmerich’s mother… This quaking, sobbing woman who shakes me and cries out on me: ‘Why are you living then, when he is dead?’” (181). Paul had enough bravery to talk to his dead friend’s mother about how her son died.
