However, the greatest pillar on which Waknuk is built is fear itself, and as a result, Waknuk will remain forever too ignorant to truly attain the True Image. Not only do the people of Waknuk possess little more than a guess as to what the Norm is, but the district’s inspection process fails to adequately screen some deviations. Not as though it would matter, because even after achieving perfection, the people of Waknuk would be one generation away from losing it as a result of the biological contaminants brought forth by Tribulation. This is the ignorance David sees, an ignorance distorted by the lens of fear: fear of God, fear of the Devil, and fear of the imitations with which it taunts
To brick up our hearts, we shield away everything that is going on in the outside world because we feel pain. The heart feels all our emotions, and often times, when we get hurt, we want to curl up and ignore everything. However, our lives do not last forever.

We can’t just shut down forever, or else how are you going to enjoy the good moments in life?

While my vision was gradually improving, I recognized the ICU room and my father laying beside me. At that moment, my father noticed I was conscious. He gently covered me, swallowed his tears, took a deep breath, and told me about what had happened. According to my classmates, I had accepted a challenge and fallen down the stairs. Deliberately, I started to recall a few flashes from the incident, and it all began to make sense.

Armando’s case could have been changed in many different ways. The first would be on page 53, when he arrived at Madison County Hospital he was instantly given CPR and put on a ventilator. If they had not done that he would have died and not become the big financial burden he did. Another way Armando’s situation could have gone differently is if his Doctor didn’t make him go through occupational therapy.

I have seen the best and of course the not so stellar examples of how to do things. All of these experiences have impacted me and my abilities. I recall shortly after starting my first job as a paramedic asking a physician at the local emergency room about a medical condition that one of my patients had and that I was not familiar with. He politely smiled, said follow me, and walked over to the physician charting area. He reached up to a shelf of books that was above the desk and pulled down this large, intimidating book with a red and white cover, Tintinalli’s Emergency Medicine.
In “Muller Bros. Moving & Storage” by Stephen J. Gould, he explains some of the memories that he is able to recall about his grandfather. However, he later realizes that he clearly did not recall every exact detail correctly as he once thought it had been. He states, “And the human mind is both the greatest marvel of nature and the most perverse of all tricksters,” (Gould 1). This relates to Hart’s point on chapter 14, in which he explains how it is important to know actual facts and to not to change information that may tamper with the story. Yet, sometimes it is really hard for the mind to analyze what actually occurred as to what one thinks happened.
On September 16, 1862, Daniel M. Holt M.D. wrote to his wife, “Shortly [we encountered] a rebel with his brains blown out, arms extended, and eyes protruding from their sockets, some not yet dead but grasping the few remaining breaths away in utter unconsciousness, others mortally wounded calling for water knowing that eternity was separated only by a hair’s breadth…I have seen what I never once expected I should see.” Dr. Holt of the 121st New York Army further describes the carnage and horror that he and countless other Civil War surgeons encountered in letters and journals written during his experience in the war. While working during a time described by Surgeon General William Hammond as “the end of the Medical Middle Ages,” it was inevitable
