This incredible war story shows us that, even though they display great bravery and valour in battle, the only thing young men who fight in wars accomplish is an early death. The novel talks about many soldiers dying. So many of these soldiers are dead, that in the trenches they can smell the stench of rotting flesh, as the dead men often do not get buried. Those young men lying out in No Man’s Land, unburied, all went to war for the same reason, to prove that they were brave, not cowardly, and to fight for their country. All they end up doing though is becoming another casualty, another statistic, dying in a war that had no real reason.
He becomes one of the negative byproducts of the war because it causes him to become “insane” and inconsiderate towards the sentimental values associated with death. In conclusion, both these texts share the common idea that war has the potential to make a person’ death seem to be not too big a deal and erase all the sentimental, emotional and humane feelings affiliated with
(pg.18) His father who died in war was his hero to him and when Hooper asked him about his father, he felt like Hooper was insulting his father so he was unhappy about it. The death of Kingshaw’s father made Kingshaw extremely sensitive about dead things. ‘He knew at once that the crow was not real, that it was stuffed and dead.’ (pg. 37) this showed that Kingshaw is very aware of death.

Even though he was alive, his friend, the “Chief”, did not want to see him in the state that he was in and decided to euthanize him. That was the end of Randle McMurphy.

As an elderly man nears death, his daughter is persuaded to abandon her people’s tradition of looking after their “own”, because she cannot bear to watch her father die. The setting encourages the reader to think about the writer’s ideas, because the heat and drought reflect the deterioration of the old man’s life. He is a good man whose recollections show a full and significant existence. She takes him to a nursing home, but is sent away because of the colour of her father’s skin. His poor treatment there is more shocking because he has been drawn as a character who had, “worked hard” and ”owed nothing to any man.” Mrs Edwards, the daughter, is confused at first by the nun’s reaction to seeing her.
I am a strong believer in “treat people how you like to be treated” it’s better to be honest, fair, and to have integrity. Live a pure life and purity is what you shall see. I take my father as an example, always telling my siblings and I to “make the right decision, treat people how you like to be treated”, “what you do is who you are, believe what you know in your heart is true”, “the truth shall set you free” and so on. He lived his life a day at a time happily accepting god’s plain contempt or joy neither affecting him, he took it as it came and just kept going. He inspires me to do better and to be better, always striding for success, never giving up, because that’s not an option.
Ewart was an American who had gotten a disease that causes his organs to shrink for a long time. He chose to die by euthanasia, to end his pain of his own accord finally. He said that Motoneuron disease made him tired and he had no will to live. If he was in so much pain by the disease, he would still want to live, but there were too much pain. From Steven Ertelt’s article, we knew that Ewart said, if he chose to live, he would suffer illness, but it did not mean he could cure the disease and have a new life (2008).
