Now that Allie is dead and that D.B. moved away, Holden feels that he doesn’t have anyone. It is just he and his little sister Phoebe. Holden also misses his family, and rarely gets to see them because he goes to a boarding school. Holden feels depressed from the prior events in his family, and no longer has the desire to learn or strive to be successful.
One of the major reasons for Holden’s depression is failing at many different things. Holden does not have any close friends to talk to and has a very hard time establishing long term relationships. Another cause for his depression is the death of his younger brother Allie, he has always thought that the world would have been better off if he had died instead of his brother. There are many reasons for Holden’s depression including multiple failures, having very few friends, and the death of his younger brother Allie. A large portion of Holden’s depression comes from failing multiple times.
Summary of “The Sewing Circles of Herat” Chapter 5 Christina Lamb was on her way back into Afghanistan after twelve years, and the ride was very long and rough. The first sight she saw was brick stacks that looked like slender broken towers, sticking up from the desert floor. They were leaning like drunken chimneys in different directions. Then an oasis of pine trees appeared in the landscape, and there the Paropamisus Mountains appeared and she knew that she was getting close to the Persian city.

As shown, Holden is depressed in many ways: he fails in life, he is lonesome, and he still is affected by his brother's death. Holden is a failure because he cannot pass any classes in school, except English, and he cannot do anything right. He is lonely because he simply hates mostly everyone and, therefore, does not have any friends. Holden is depressed by his brother's death because that was his best friend. Holden's depression started with the loss of his best friend/brother and continued on with failure and loneliness throughout the rest of his
John Denver .Henry John Deutschendorf Jr (John Denver), singer, guitarist, songwriter: born Roswell, New Mexico 31 December 1943; married first 1967 Ann Martell (one adopted son, one adopted daughter; marriage dissolved 1983), second Cassandra Delaney (one daughter); died Monterey Bay, California 12 October 1997. It is surprising to discover that John Denver only had one UK Top 30 hit, "Annie's Song". Despite numerous tours and television appearances, the British public ignored all his other US No 1s - "Sunshine on My Shoulders", "Back Home Again", "Thank God I'm a Country Boy", "Calypso" and "I'm Sorry". In the same way that the British public never latched on to surf records, maybe his Johnny-One-Note theme of the Rocky Mountains was too

Even after the mistakes Sonny has made he remembered the story about how his father’s brother died and it reminded him of what his mother told him. She had told him “ Hold on to your brother and don’t let him fall, no matter what it looks like is happening to him and no matter how evil you gets of him” (56).

We sang, danced, and told scary story until midnight. In the end of the camping, the instructor asked us to rescue a doll which placed near the waterfall. It was a very pleasant trip. All of us were having fun, because our high school is in downtown Jakarta, so we rarely saw mountains. Three months after that, around March 2011, my friend, Evan, fell from his motorbike when he went to my home to returned my shoe.
Before his mom and sisters died, he was given plenty of love. After they were gone, the only person left for him to love was his father. Chlomo Wiesel wasn’t the kind of person that shows love and affection to people though. It’s more towards the end of the book that Elie realizes how much he cares about his dad. At one point, when Chlomo was being beaten by Idek, he was ashamed of his father and he didn’t feel any grief for him.
The relationship of a young man and his friends and family is more then important. In evidence, many men join the group and dies young since they are constantly facing dangers and dies they leave behind them a family who cared for them, all this happens because in the family most of the time a young male didn’t have the male figure in the house and because of that ‘’Poor self-esteem may lead boys and men to hyper-masculine activity.’’ (P.285) Plus the mother is absent because she become the ‘’breadwinner’’(p.13) when the male dies.
