Eight months after rehabilitation Ishmael had the opportunity to fly to New York to talk about his experience saying, “I am not a soldier anymore; I am a child. We are all brothers and sisters. What I have learned from my experience is that revenge is not good. I joined the army to avenge the deaths of my family and to survive, but I’ve come to learn that if I am going to take revenge, in that process I will kill another person whose family will want revenge; then revenge and revenge and revenge will never come to an end…” (Beah 2007 pg 199).

The author is Probably delusional at this time. “There was no sound at all-none that I can remember.
Have you ever wondered what our children, and grandchildren’s lives will be like? We Screwed Up; A Letter of Apology to my Granddaughter (Ward, 2012) is a letter written by Chip Ward to his four year old granddaughter and her possible unborn siblings. He speaks clearly about the devastation that past generations have caused to the planet we all call home, although he fails to provide any evidence concerning what he claims, as well as majorly lacks appreciation for the organizations already working towards a better tomorrow. Chip Ward begins his letter with an apology to his granddaughter and her siblings for using up all of the oil. He claims that, “We are all gas-hogs, plain and simple” (Ward, 2012), in regards to his generation and those
Although there was the time needed for the parents to mourn the death of their child, they were not promised any. Within the same day of their sons death, they had events and tasks that needed their attention. Life waits for no one and has a pace of its own.

Molly, suffered serious trauma after Tilly was removed from her care and taken away, when Tilly returned, Molly could not remember her daughter, or didn’t want to. That part of her life affected her personality in a way to make her cold and distant until she starts remembering what happened, another great part that the audiences can use to connect with the characters. In “Jasper Jones” the traumatic experience was Jasper finding out that Mad Jack Lionel was his grandfather and that left him wondering and full of questions. Overall the producers of these texts have design all the characters in a way that everyone had a problem or a flaw.

As in the story “The Toughest Man” by Victor Ciurte, and my story had some similarities because both of our parent hid something from us because they decided it was the best to not hurt us but at the end it did hurt us. There are some differences too and one of them is that Victor had no clues about his grandfather health and I had a lot of clues that my parents were having money

Following Dimmesdale’s death, “all [of Chillingworth 's] strength and energy… and intellectual force seemed at once to desert him… and almost vanished from mortal sight” (Hawthorne 212), as his own death quickly proceeds within a year. When the source of evil that he leeches off of disappears, Chillingworth’s life begins to disintegrate, as he lacks further purpose to survive due to his loss of humanity. His obsession with obtaining revenge eventually forces him to lose control of his own fate, as it becomes dependent on Dimmesdale’s actions. Since Chillingworth devoted his life to seeking revenge on Dimmesdale, without a mortal target, his existence becomes meaningless. In an effort to assert control and prolong his own life, Chillingworth tries to terminate Dimmesdale’s public confession.

John Updike begins “Perfection Wasted” with the line, “And another regrettable thing about death is the ceasing of your own brand of magic, which took a whole life to develop and market” (Updike, line 1-3), he says that one of the downsides to dying is losing everything you’ve worked your whole life to get. We work hard most of our lives to become something other than ordinary and when we’re finally extraordinary we start to wither away and die. He goes on to say that the phrases we’ve been known to say, our sarcastic statements, and our bias towards certain people all die with us. When we die we take all the delight and sorrow we’ve caused from the world. No one can make someone feel the way we have.
