Duncan could never imagine that this will be true for Macbeth, whom he trusts the most. Duncan had no idea that Macbeth was going to kill him .On Louis first day of work, a collage student named Victor Pascow died. Yet before he passed, he told Louis that he should not go beyond the pet semetary or else bad things will happen to him. Like Macbeth, Louis was very puzzled about this “fate” and did not bother to acknowledge it. This fate/prophecy is ironic for Louis because he ends up going past the semetary, and burying his daughter’s cat, as well as his son.

None of my children will do it, and we can forget the grandchildren. They don't even understand what we are doing when we pray to the dead. I guess when we’re gone, the ritual ends.” Such, alas, is the price for living in America. I myself can't remember the last time I lit incense sticks and talked to my dead ancestors. Having fled so far from Vietnam, I can no longer imagine what to say, or how I should address my prayers, or for that matter what promises I could possibly make to the long departed.
I was afraid that people would think I’m crazy. I was sure that nobody would understand what I mean, and still, I think that I’d be able to explain it. (I’m not sure what you mean in this sentence maybe try splitting it up into two so your point comes across more clearly) So, you think I was a weird child? – Maybe, but as David Foster Wallace wrote in his essay, “Plain Old Untrendy Troubles and Emotions”, I believe that nowadays we, humans, do not pay too much attention to the things that seem to be so obvious, so simple, seem to be just crud (This isn’t to clear either what seems to be just crud?). We never think about them (What is them, use what your are talking about instead of them just for this one the other two you can leave), we don’t question them; we never raise these “ubiquitous” issues.
She condescendingly takes many pictures of the house with them in front of it. She acts as if she is taking pictures of a third world country for a project, instead of being happy to see her loved ones. Instead of embracing where she comes from, Dee looks down on her mom and sister and their home. She wrote her mother once and told her that no matter where they "choose" to live, she will manage to come see them. But she will never bring her friends.
I simply knew I couldn’t miss it; not this time. I was to make sure that I attended this party, as it was the last piece of fun I would’ve had before my summer vacation was over. I asked my parents if they would let me go, but the answer was “no”. They explained to me what happens at those types of parties, but I had no interest in their sayings, I just wanted to go. I continued to ask, until finally it happened.
For example, my grandparents believe that after they attend a funeral, they have to walk across a fire pit before they get back to their house. They believe souls in the funeral homes will follow them after they left. To drive them away, they have to walk across a fire pit, as souls are afraid of fire. This prevents souls causing trouble at their home. However, there is no evidence to support the action or the theory behind the action.
She new if she refused not to do anything, or talk back to her uncle and aunty, that not only her would be punished but also her cousins. In a chapter in the novel, Kirby refuses to go with the family to town because of the thought of being humiliated. The children try to beg her to came because if she was disobedient they would have to stay and pray for Kirby for hours on their knees, despite Kirby not wanting to go she replies “…bloody hell! All right! I’ll come, it’ll kill me but I’ll come!” This indicated that Kirby starts to take her cousins
It seemed the sun had disappeared, and with it, all the warmth and security that I had ever felt in my life. There was no moon. The darkness seemed to have strangled light from the world, and from my heart, leaving behind an empty blackness that I couldn’t seem to fill. I knew I shouldn’t have been out so late at night, I knew it was a mistake to go, I knew I would be endangering the lives of both me, and my daughter, but, the disappointed look on my daughter’s face when I arrived home late on her birthday was just too much to bear. So we went, anyways.
