After every death that Billy Pilgrim encounters, he states, “So it goes.” The truth behind death in war is hidden when Billy states this. Billy no longer believes in the idea of death so he instead hides it by saying that it wasn’t the ending of a life, but rather an unfortunate part of their life.
Friar Laurence is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet for three reasons. First, he never should have agreed to marry them in the first place. He did so because of his idea that their marriage might mark the end of the bitter feud between the Montagues and Capulets. The part of his plan which was missing, however, was how the couple would ultimately announce that marriage. Although his heart was certainly in the right place, his decision ignored the possibility that several things could go wrong.
To fix this problem I manged to piece together some evidence to finalize unfinished conclusions. Deep into the decision Katrina made a statement in which overall suggested that intentions do not predict outcomes. To support her evidence she referred to the scene in Romeo and Juliet in which Romeo got in between the fight of Mercutio and Tibolt and intending to stop the fight, Romeo gave Tibolt a free opening in stabbing Mercutio resulting in his death. Not only did I agree to the evidence Katrina states but I also related it to George’s intentions with Lennie in the Farm.

He cites a historian named John Lawson, who talks about Native American folk lore surrounding the arrival of the British Colonists. In my opinion the use of folk lore shouldn’t be used in any evidence-based analysis; It’s unscholarly, and it doesn’t add anything to the conversation. In Allard’s final statement: “Although the fate of the Roanoke colonists may never be known for sure, it is clear that many factors—the difficult sea voyage, lack of supplies, poor relations with the Indians whose support they needed to survive, and the worst drought in 800 years—could have greatly reduced the odds of their survival. But people have overcome even worse odds before.

Huck for instance learns that “Moses had been dead”
Accomplished rock climber and veteran journalist, Jon Krakauer in his book, Into Thin Air, describes the 1996 Mount Everest disaster. Krakauer 's purpose is to record the events of the expedition in complete detail. He adopts an informative tone in order to demonstrate the deadly effects of pride, poor judgement, and bad luck. Krakauer begins his book by establishing the credibility of his account of the expedition. Introducing himself as a member of the 1996 Adventure Consultants expedition on Mount Everest, one of several expeditions attempting to summit Everest in May of 1996, is Krakauer 's primary means of building his credibility as a speaker, since being on the mountain at that time would have given him a first hand account of the disaster.
