In a way Amir is born with guilt, his mother dies during childbirth and Amir is stricken with the guilt of his birth. “I always felt like Baba hated me a little. And why not? After all, I had killed his beloved wife, his beautiful princess, hadn’t I?” This example shows that even as a young child Amir felt guilt and allowed the past to significantly affect his life. Amir felt the reason Baba was always distant and seemed cut off, was because he was torn inside after the death of his beloved wife, which Amir had killed at delivery.

Diblasio believes that people are more aware of bullying and are finally taking action and reporting it. For example she claims “people are more likely to know about bullying and feel that they have to repot it” (Diblasio). This may be true; however are they targeting the right people? Most of the parents whose child is being bullying instantly assumes it is the schools fault, yet they don’t target the actual bully first. Like I have mentioned in the previous paragraph, schools only have limited power when it comes to bullying.
In March 2012 four-year-old Daniel Pelka was brutally murdered by his mother and her partner. As the shocking news hit the headlines it quickly became apparent that his death resulted from months of abuse and neglect. And the saddest part is, that his death could have been prevented. Failure in social care led to Daniel becoming “invisible” in a system that was in place to protect him. A serious case review found Daniel Pelka, was simply "not heard" at times and "no professional tried sufficiently hard enough" to talk to him.
My mother had a best friend whose husband was killed in the attacks; apparently he was trapped in the first tower when it collapsed. So, we were visiting that family a lot, and comforting them whenever we could. But what really hit me hard was that this was just one family. After the attacks that day, hundreds and hundreds of people lost loved ones to one of the most brutal and barbaric attacks in human history. I was only in the 2nd grade at the time when the attacks happened, but I still knew how awful it would be to come home from school and find out that one of your parents were killed in a mass murder.
P2 Jane is 24 and has recently lost both her parents in a car accident and has turned to drugs as a coping mechanism. Because of her drug habit Jane is facing losing her job and her boyfriend of 4 years has also suggested they break up. People we love can die at any stage in our life and it is always hard to deal with the pain of losing a loved one, however the pain is even greater when we lose them at a young age or if we lose them unexpectedly. Death affects every person differently and people have different ways of coping with the death of people they love. When Jane lost her parents she will have gone through the transition of life with them to life without them and it will have been very sudden for her as they died accidentally.
What do the families do to bury their hate of each other? Whose unfortunate, pitiful defeat Doth with their death bury their parents’ strife. Fight and kill Fight and kill The fearful passage of their death-marked love The fearful course of their doomed and fatal love And the continuance of their parent’s rage, And the continuance of their familys’ violent hatred Which, but their children’s end, naught could remove, Which nothing except their children’s death could stop Is now the two hours traffic of our stage, Is now what will be performed for 2 hours on the stage The which if you with patient ears attend, Which if you listen with patient ears What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend. The details that we haven’t given you we will attempt to supply.
