During the interview, Mr. R.A.M stated, “I have learned from my failures. We all made mistakes, but to learn from these mistakes and take it in a positive experience is life changing”. According to McKee (2012), Erikson states that the person who approaches death without fear has the forte called wisdom. He also states that healthy children will not have any fear in life if they see their elders show acceptances about the death and show no fear about dying.

Our family had a special bond that you only saw in the movies. We were always around each other not because we had to be, but because we wanted to be. Some of my best memories are from growing up in that small trailer and my amazing memories that I developed there. In fact, never having a private moment gave me the feeling of completeness and love.

You are safe. Your loved one is safe. That is the message of all the words here.” As a teenager, I’m constantly told to, “Live life to the fullest,” and “life is too short, so make the most out of it,” and that creates a frightening response to any thought of death.

Harriet Beecher Stowe once said, “When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you... never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” This quote by Stowe can be used in every challenging situation from the simplest to the most complex. Although our generation is known for giving up because of loss of interest, never quitting will allow the feeling of accomplishment when reaching a succeeded goal, and achieving an all-around goal will allow room to take that goal forward and to a new and diverse level. Giving up is easy. Giving up is part of human nature that we all know and have given into once or twice in our lifetime. That is okay.
The reality of the characters of the film changes throughout the entire storyline. Both Marc and Agnès have questionable realities. Just like the Nighthawks painting, there is not a clear story.

The book “Forged by Fire” by Sharon M. Draper is a book with many themes and lessons we all can learn. One of the themes that this essay will talk about will be about loyalty. For one thing, loyalty is a strong feeling because it’s something that comes from inside of a person to have faith in someone . We are all loyal to someone, someone who’s special in our lives and plays a major role in our lives that drags us to support them no matter what. In this book, Gerald gets abused by his drunk father.
"The nicest veterans in Schenectady, I thought, the kindest and funniest ones, the ones who hated war the most, were the ones who'd really fought."(Vonnegut). Soldiers risk their lives day and night to not only protect their country but protect their own lives, even if they don’t agree on what they are fighting for in the war.

In life, there are many people who influence others. Some are good influences and some are bad influences. The one person who influenced Christopher's life the most would have to be his father, Ed Boone a character from the novel the curious incident of the dog in the night-time written by Mark Haddon. In the book Ed Boone makes lots of mistakes that are completely understandable given his situation. He is still a fine father whose has unconditional love and commitment for Christopher which allows him to grow in spite of the numerous challenges he faces.
At the fault of his father, he reacted rashly. “When Walt’s double life came to light, the revelations inflicted deep wounds. All parties suffered terrible.” This would be a negative turning point in anyone's life, but Chris was wrong to just pack up and take himself to his death. Though Chris indeed had his flaws, more evidence points to him being sane. He was moral, made decent decisions for the most part and was intelligent and likable.
