They have wives, children, occupation, interests, they have a background that is so strong that the war cannot obliterate it. We young men of twenty, however, have only our parents, and some, perhaps, a girl-that is not much, for at our age the influence of our parents were the weakest and girls have not yet got a hold over us… And of this nothing remains.” They will later in the book try to forget their past lives and this is one of the few critical looks at their life before it becomes distorted. And they understand that their lives will be ‘swept away’. They also see the terror in others and help “Beside us lies a fair-headed recruit in utter terror… his helmet has fallen off. I fish hold of it and try to put it back on his head.
In this short story, “In the Gloaming” by Alice Elliott Dark, the main characters learn that you should spend as much time as possible with family, make and never forget memories together, and how to accept death. Although the characters learn these lessons the hard way, in the end they come to understand the value of them. People will always tell you how valuable time is, but I didn't realize how true this statement is until reading this short story. In the story, it is mentioned how Laird’s dad and mom didn’t spend a lot of time with him. In the story, it states, “She had as much of him now as she had when he was an infant.” This is talking about how Janet spent most of her time with Laird when he was a baby, and she was spending that same amount of time with him now.

So, over the course of my paper I will be discussing the different people who might have killed her and what their motives may have been.

Lizzie Borden took an ax, And gave her mother forty whacks; When she saw what she had done, She gave her father forty-one. The famous rhyme of Lizzie Borden giving her mother 40 whacks and then her father 41. Most people assume she committed the crime, of killing her parents, and that she planned the whole thing though there are some holes in the case. Everybody thinks she committed the crime though no one is sure, one thing is certain there are holes in the case and these holes make me believe that Lizzie did not do the crime. There are so many holes that no one is certain who did the crime.
While getting interviewed Jay says that he helped Adnan get to track practice and dig a hole for Hae’s body (7-8). This proves that Jay assisted Adnan in murdering Hae and that they were both involved in the crime. In episode two of Serial the state claims that Adnan is the one that did it. Sarah states on behalf of the state “And the motive the State supplied, the basis for the whole thing, was that after Hae broke up with Adnan, he couldn’t accept it. He was so wounded by her, and so furious, that he decided to kill her” (21).
“The Contrast of My Family from Harrison Bergeron Family” The best family of Jerry Ferguson Jr versus the so called average family of Harrison Bergeron. The story I chose is “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut and I chose this short story to use because I can use it to tell a difference or contrast between the family. So I can contrast this because in the short story it describes the Mother as being an “average” Mother and my Mother to me is beyond the average. A second one is that the father in the story always will forget the events that happen in twenty-seconds so that's different than my Mother because she will never forget about anything it don’t matter if it happened many years ago she will never forget. And the last detail is that
