Domestic life can be an extremely transforming to opinions on suicide to the teenage youth community. In a journal article this fact was found “Many teenagers feel trapped and powerless from domestic abuse and thus believe that suicide is the only way out” (World mental health, Elsevier’s Research page.2). This quote essentially means those teenagers who experience effects such as being beaten at home or harmed are more likely to have suicidal thoughts and perhaps even go through with it. With this information it is able to be extracted that teenagers experiencing trouble at home are the ones who have additional suicidal thoughts, thus showing how domestic house hold connects to suicide. Another reason this is true is based on the fact gained from “Why Suicide?” book which stated “39% of all youth suicides are completed by young people who have lost someone of influence or significance for them to think about or commit suicide”(Why suicide, page 48).
The majority of people might think teenage crash rates are high because of texting and driving; however, several causes of these young driver wrecks are from sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation will cause teenagers to possess a “strong tendency toward brief mental lapses” which “greatly increase the risk” of car crashes and accidents (Wahlstrom 31). Teenagers have an increasing number of wrecks from sleep deprivation every day. The more sleep they receive from starting school later, the more likely the teenagers would arrive at school safely with no car crashes. “When you are sleep deprived, you are as impaired as driving with a blood alcohol content of .08%, which is illegal for drivers in many states” (National Sleep Foundation).

On the Road tells the story of two friends whose trips are a quest for the meaning of the life and true experience. They are traveling across America with hitchhiking. The reason why the narrator became sensitive to male friendships is that he lost his brother, Gerard. He admitted in the novel that Dean reminded him of Gerard: “Yes, and it wasn‘t only because I was a writer and needed new experiences that I wanted to know Dean more, (...) but because, somehow, in spite of our difference in character, he reminded me of some long-lost brotherˮ (ibid. : 9-10).
Darrel’s call to adventure is when both his parents die in a car accident in which he know becomes the primary caretaker of his younger brothers. Knowing he must leave his current life, he experiences a refusal of the call in which he refuses to be the now role model for his older brothers alongside their fatherly figure. When he accepts this call, he crosses the first threshold after most likely realizing that this is when his younger brothers, Ponyboy and Soda need him most for guidance and to help them get through their lives while coping with their parents’ passing away in then Darrel must become a more mature person and shape himself up and leaving his days of crime and mischief to help raise them. With this new acceptance, he gains supernatural aides, or Helpers and Guides. The Helpers he gets are most likely his fellow greasers who guide him and help him learn the traits needed to take on the parental rights.
Mostly car accidents happen by people who are under 21 which is a reason to raise driving to the age of 21. At that early age teens are still young and less experienced to have the licensee. Car accidents especially by teens get nervous and scared at their first days of driving. Over panicking can make them concentrate less while driving which leads to accidents. The number of Cars are also increasing by teens who are driving at early age which is against the environment which causes air pollution.
All around the world every second there are car accidents, where people end up being injured and losing their lives. Road traffic crashes rank ninth leading cause of death and account for 2.2% of all deaths globally (N/A, 2014). Cars have been modified and made safe over a period, where now they are safer than before. Science has been playing a very crucial role in this, where different safety measures have been invented to keep the people inside the car safe. For example: there is airbag, sit belt, different types of tires that have different amount of friction, these tires are used depending on the surface on which the car is driving.
Many characters feel at fault for Danny’s death, including Howie who left the fence unlocked and Jason, who drove the car that killed Danny. Jason thinks that he is ultimately culpable for Danny’s death, but I believe that the central message of the play is how no one is truly at fault for this accident. Thus, I aimed to portray Jason as an awkward boy who gains some closure about the incident at the end of the scene. I decided to enunciate my lines more quickly especially when Jason is blaming himself to emphasise how uneasy and nervous he felt. Glenda and I decided to stand up from the couch during the lines “Do you want to see pictures?
