Nearer to the end of the poem it becomes apparent that he is frustrated that the media has put a glorified and glossy coating over war, unaware of the discordant reality that he and many other soldiers have been forced to live out in their
Health risks spanned from the horrendous environment. The origin of the apocalypse is unknown, but the father did hear concussions then identifies a “dull rose glow” (52) one morning that altered the country from then on. The land was uninhabited, the trees were all dead, and ash flew all over creating a grey murk (4). The ash that fluttered around was a major hindrance for the man and his son. They had to wear masks to cover their face so they would not inhale the murk, but the father still seemed to have a reoccurring respiratory problem.
Effects of War Tim O’Brien wrote the short story “Where Have You Gone, Charming Billy?” to help people apprehend what it was like to be in the war.

This inability symbolizes the pain that many Vietnam veterans experienced when they returned. Veterans yearned to tell their stories to others, which ate them up psychologically. The lake Bowker drives around represents the sewage field that Kiowa died in from Vietnam and how incapable he is to communicate these feelings of guilt and trauma with others. Similar to how Kiowa, American decency, drowned in the sewage field, Bowker feels that the war destroyed his personal decency. A major symptom of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is the inability to relay the emotions and experiences of such traumatic events.
Kat disagrees with the fact the officers, and the soldiers are paid differently, and claims the war would end if they were.

During a night, the men go on a tough mission to go lay Barbed wire on the front, and they are being surrounded by artillery blast so they go hide in a graveyard but, the shelling is killing soldiers, and bringing dead soldiers out of the ground. Due to incidents like this, Paul had finally realized that he has to trust his instincts, and to find his inner
In the third stanza the reader can infer that the brigade has little to no chance of surviving and in the last stanza the author leaves the reader with the defeat of the 600. The author uses an immense amount of repetition in this poem giving the effect of a march or song to give the reader a feeling of being in the battle. The rhyme scheme of this poem also contributes to the sound of a military
The masked character has a mysterious presence, and makes the prince coward and renders him powerless. When the masked figure chases after Prince Prospero; none of the party members get involved with this chase. Even though they were solely picked by Prince Prospero to stay at the castle; it shows that the prince is alone and nobody cares about him. “The masked stranger, dressed as the Red Death, represents the futility of trying to control the inevitable. The reaction of the guests to the mask of the stranger, which shows telltale spatters of blood from the plague, illustrates the universal fear of death and the unknown” (Gillespie and Naden).
As the American Revolution was in full swing, soldiers were being recruited and fighting for their freedom from the British. However, the fight for freedom took more than just fighting skills. The men fighting had to endure the harsh conditions and the little help and supplies they received. The American army went to Valley Forge in hopes of spying on the British army.

When Doodle died Brother Armstrong was not near him nor did he cause or plan for it to happen and he even went after Doodle when he called but it was to late.

It never shows his face or even that he has a face, because he's supposed to be faceless. He also has no shapeand is wearing a black robe, so he's not cute. As you can probably imagine this grim reaper looking figure represents death. It also symbolizes the future which is not written in stone, he's trying to show us that if Scrooge continues down this same path that he will die a lonely death with only one person at his funeral. On the other it's showing us that if Scrooge stops in his track and turns around that his future will be bright.
He was done with that little town, its sad people, and all the sorrow that had plagued his life. He relished the idea of being free. He could do nothing about the aching pain of how his dad died…in a self imposed sleep from too much of the sleeping salts, and a fallen candle that set off the fire. What was done was done, and he had learned early on to not hang on to things you had no control of, so he rode away from his childhood and toward the life of a
He remembered the explosions all around him and all of the death filling the smoke-filled air. All the death haunting his thoughts inadvertently was tearing him down to his very core. His thoughts were truly like a cloudy day, looming over him with their darkness. Although he was not still a part of the war, these thoughts never ceased. Lewis Harrison, formerly a soldier of the Union army, was reminiscing his time in the war on the train which was taking him home.

In Frank Romero's mural "Going to the Olympics,1984" what you see is various of colorful cars on the freeway or road and on top of the car there are hearts on each one.
