"When a man died, there had to be blame. Jimmy Cross understood this. You could blame the war… A moment of carelessness or bad judgment or plain stupidity carried consequences that lasted forever" (115). In both the novel and the video, it was shown that the soldiers would quickly take blame for the actions in battle. For example, in the Battle of Ong Thanh, a veteran shared that he had the opportunity to save someone, but didn’t take it due to fear.
Dr. Mudd’s Punishment Dr. Mudd’s punishment was too harsh for his involvement with John wilkes Booth. Mudd had not known about Booth planning to assassinate the president. In the article it states, “The doctor rose from his bed, assisted Booth, set the fractured bone. But he did not know, he had no reason to suspect, his patient was a fugitive.” Dr. Mudd had no idea of Booth’s plan and if he did he would have been weary of Booth knowing that he could be on the run. But he didn’t.
Some people fall for the unrealistic expectations of love that the media portrays, and some people see the problems that two people 'in love ' have and see that love doesn 't really exist. 6) Summer: "There 's no such thing as love, it 's a fantasy." a) Again, this shows Tom and Summer 's different opinions on love and marriage. Tom fell hard in love with Summer very quickly, while she never believed in the idea of love in the first place. From the very beginning, she expressed her opinions of love, but despite this, Tom felt that he could magically change Summer 's opinion of love and get her to believe that love exists, even though sometimes, love is fabricated and isn 't
This part is become interesting for me because Charlie was a kind of shy person and this is his first date ever and a girl who date him is something different for the other girls so I think it is more challenged to Charlie. I can’t figure it out how Charlie deal with this so I become interested what happens next and read more. The way it is written was amazing because it is in form of letter then every event in the story didn’t write direct or on point, you need to think deeper meaning of it. I enjoy reading this book and other can enjoy it because it is mix emotion felt
“Only two. And they’ve gone.” When Ralph gives him the answer he is not telling the full truth, there were more than two boys that were killed. It is possible that Ralph did not mention the others because he was embarrassed of what they have become on the island. “Ralph nodded” Ralph is not answering the officer in words; he is just doing actions to show that he heard and understood the question. It is like Ralph is embarrassed to tell the officer how far they have drifted from the morals of a civilized community.
In Peace Like a River by Leif Enger, Davy, Reuben Land’s older brother, runs away after killing two people. Based on Davy’s decision and personality, I believe that his family has never truly known him and he has a darker side that no one noticed. Reuben and his family always believed that they knew exactly who Davy was, however, it becomes apparent in the novel that he is not who anyone thought he was. For instance, Reuben has always known Davy to be in charge of himself, and to play by his own rules. It comes as a surprise to Reuben when he sees that Jape Waltzer is in charge of Davy now because he had “never before heard Davy speak about someone else as though that person and not he himself were in charge” (226).
He never got his bestfriends Hackett’s body to his father because the narrator also ended up dying. The way this story relates to the society is because in this story he made a big mistake that he could not help. In life people make mistakes and sometimes you can fix it and sometimes you just have to deal with the mistake that happen and just hope for the best and sometimes the mistake that has been made is not so bad after all but it was bad for him because it killed him. You never know what is going to happen in the mean
Rather than being killed by the men he despised he took his own life. Actions have consequences and in killing three people he realized he was not exempt from that rule. Upon his newfound cognizance he took a cowards way out which is also an abomination to their clan. While Okonkwo was an impressive figure to the people of Umuofia because of the warrior he had become for his own self-gratification he died just like his father; titleless. If Okonkwo hadn’t been so petrified of being seen as weak he could’ve lived to be more, but the persona he built wasn’t prepared to enter his new world of an
Levi stated “To destroy a man is difficult, almost as difficult as to create one: it has not been easy, nor quick” (If this is a Man, 156). It is still hard to define exactly what humanity is and what it means to lose humanity, because humanity is defined by the person and only the person can understand when they lost oneself. In many cases it is too late when they discover this, such of that of the dying SS soldier. But for others they may once again gain it back, such as that of the prisoners or even the SS soldier realizing over a year later the crime he committed was unmoral and inhumane. However, no matter if a person loses their humanity forever, or they gain it back eventually, that person will never be the same.
Kabuo Miyamoto's trial was not about murder, it was about prejudice. Kabuo was unlucky to be with Carl Heien on the night of his death. Kabuo knew he would be blamed for Carl's death. He lied a little because he knew the other people in town would not believe. Which became more true than ever.
In this case there was several factors that led to the deaths of the 13 smokejumpers. Lack of communication was one of the main failures in this incident, however, I feel there was a trust issue as well. It does not make sense to me that these young men would knowingly ignore the orders of their leader had they had confidence in him.
Many hid behind a facade, and denied their wrongdoing. Some, however, felt guilt. One man in particular, a farmer from Morioka, Japan, knew what he did, and was guilty(Kristof).This man was once part of Unit 731, and had conducted such horrible experiments such as conducting a vivisection on a still awake man. He described the screams of the man being cut open, and was very disturbed by it, saying that “it was [my] first time”. The farmer didn’t want to be associated with Unit 731, so he decided to remain anonymous.
