Before their family tragedy occurs, none of them could ever think about changing mentality or lifestyle, therefore all characters are psychologically unready to survive their loss. Moreover, this event makes some of the characters starting to think differently. Nandana is one of the main characters who can also be considered a hero. She initially lives an illusion when she refuses to accept that her parents died. As she refuses to talk to anybody, the child created her own imaginary world being unwilling to look at the reality: “Why couldn't he understand that if he kept quiet, if all of them kept quiet, her parents would hear her and come to take her home?” (47).
Number one being that he married his first cousin and after some time he had a baby with her, to me, thats weird. Would anyone he knew look down on him? most likely, so maybe that made him gain too much stress, thinking about what others were saying about him and his wife and cousin and their family. Another strange part of Poe's life would be the fact that most of his close family , including his wife, all got the same disease and they all died from it. Poe knew that his wife was going to die the second he heard that she got the disease , so he was not surprised when she did end up dying.
On the opposite, Hazel lives in a severe depression and it is clearly shown that her disease has consumed the majority of her happiness. In fact, her story does not have a happy ending; on the contrary, it leaves you filled with sadness. This allowed me to see what it's like to live with an incurable disease and from a point of view of someone who is dying. Personally, I found so much of myself in Hazel to the point where I knew exactly what she was feeling, allowing me to understand her thoughts of desperation almost perfectly. The moment I closed the book, I realized something I had never thought of before.
Although she tried every kind of treatment available to her, everything was ineffective and she ended up in a hospice center where was was able to avoid a drawn out painful demise. Duffy’s final example is from another writer’s story, where he uses excellent quotes and citations. He brings up a situation in which a nurse, who shares the same point of view as Duffy, hesitates to act when the patient is dying. For granting his dying wish, she is charged with murder. In conclusion, he states his opinion: American society should follow the lead of other countries and reevaluate the right of the terminally ill to die (76).
I read the non-fiction narrative essay “Girl” by Jane Maher which is about a story about a problem between her and her father and how this issue continued between them until his death. (Maher 1-3). The author story is very doleful since it is a realistic circumstance that Maher been through in her life, and it really impinged on me since I live far away from my family and any topic about parents affects me easily. I wished that the death wasn’t the end of the story, but that is not Maher’s choice, nor the reader’s! Death is the predestined destination for all creations in this entire world, whether they are satisfied or not.
Within the Clutter family the bass line was Mr. Herbert Clutter. He held that family together through his wife’s illness and Nancy’s scandalous inter-religious relationship. He provided both financial and emotional support and stability for his family, and existed to protect them. Without a bass line a musical piece falls apart. The chords don’t make sense, the rhythm ceases to exist, and by killing Mr. Clutter, Smith and Hickock made it impossible for that family to ever recover, even if they hadn’t killed the rest of the members.
Both families have only one child Romeo and Juliet, the pair fall in love and throughout the play we see them longing to be together despite knowing that their families will never agree to this relationship. Which soon leads to the tragic death of both Romeo and Juliet. Along the way multiple characters are to blame as they contribute to the tragic end particularly Romeo and Juliet themselves, Friar Laurence and The Capulet and Montague family who also play their part. Paragraph 1: Romeo and Juliet are almost entirely responsible for their own deaths. As the play is set over a sequence of five days it was obvious that no thought was put into their terrible decisions which led to their tragic deaths.
This man was left quadriplegic after a diving accident and had been bedridden for almost 30 years. He fought a losing battle with government: he never received permission for euthanasia, and in January 1998, with the help of one of his friends he took poison. Another possible reason for the justifying of euthanasia is the lack of space in hospitals for those who can be cured and saved. It is bitter to own up, but this problem exists in many countries. Those who want to live have no chance to get the proper treatment while those who want to die cannot give their place to them.
A few routine visits from the townspeople, companionship from Homer Barron, who is found as a skeleton in her house upon her death, and assistance from her house keeper Tobe is the only interaction Miss Emily has with the outside world. In a community infiltrated with evolving social standards brought on by an ever changing political and technological country, Miss Emily is left as “the victim of southern tradition and culture” (Fang, 18). Her victimization, and ultimate ostracism, is a result of the community’s inability to perceive Miss Emily as anything but a “high and mighty” (Faulkner, 392) Grierson who became a “disgrace to the town” (Faulkner, 395) when the working class Northerner, Homer Barron, began courting her. The beginning and end of the story illustrates the townspeople’s almost indifferent opinion of Miss Emily’s death through the narrator’s recollection of events. From the beginning, the community depicts Miss Emily more as an unwanted object they wish to explore than a recently deceased person.
