Saying that he does not deserve this is as if almost to say he did not exist. Hitler deserves his reputation without a doubt, even though Hitler’s reputation is a horrible one, why can’t Alexander receive his, much more it is not a negative one, one that killed a mass of people. Now maybe Alexander did kill many people in his time of reign, but most of those kills were because of war. Hitler’s reason was for an evil hatred of the Jewish community.

Initially, having been convinced that war is a glorious act of patriotism, the writers felt downright betrayed by the previous generation, once coming to the haunting realization that war is the opposite of what had been conveyed to them. For example in All Quiet on the Western Front, Paul’s teacher, Kantorek, represents this despised upon generation as he goes to great extent to intensely convince the whole class to go to war until finally they succumbed to “under his shepherding” (11).

This misconception proved to be lethal as it created the all-popular vibe that war is a glorious event that always leads to better futures. In addition, in the poem “Arms and the Boy”, Owen describes an omniscient group who “let the boy try along this bayonet-blade” (line 1).
Although I had conditions when he gave it to me, I was told not to let my boyfriend at the time to drive it and if I did he would take the truck back. Of course my dad never liked anyone I dated, I was a magnet for losers, and it was like I had a sign on my forehead that read “If you have no job, no car and need a place to stay, I’m your girl”!

KR-J1: In “The Kite Runner”, by Khaled Hosseini, family was very important. It was a recurring topic that made its way in just about every chapter of this book.

Baba was a typical father that expected his son to be into athletic things such as soccer and such, and when Amir tried things of that nature, he felt bad because he was not as good as Baba had hoped.

Everyone has their own reasons, mine was because of the hatred I had for myself, I didn’t like one part of my body, and I thought I was stupid. I thought I was worthless, less than nothing, I didn’t think I deserved to live but I didn’t think I deserved to die either. I thought that I deserved to be stuck living my life, everyday dealing with the pressure to be perfect, and the pressure to be the best. I grew up with the impression that I had to be perfect to bring honor to my family. If I wasn’t perfect, I was a failure and a disgrace to my family.
