The author uses events that really happened in the Civil War to bring home the brutality of war--the building of a wall with dead bodies, young men shot in the stomach being left to die, horses being killed to feed starving men. These events must change the men involved. When Charley leaves for Fort Snelling, he is a smiling, fast-talking boy. Once Charley returns home, he is a different man-a broken man, in constant pain, unable to hold a job, and looking forward to his own death. Narrative
Also, while the platoon is searching through the muck to find the dead body, Lieutenant Cross thinks of a way to write a letter informing Kiowa’s father of the unfortunate news. He wants to make this letter more personal than just a notification telling the parent that his or her child has been killed in action. Lieutenant Cross shows that he is willing to go above and beyond the required duties of being a leader, because he strives to do more than that. He makes an effort to know his troops on an individual basis. Considering Lieutenant Cross is one of the draftees that initially did not want to fight in the war, he does not necessarily take on the typical militarized
By showing that she has destroyed her grandmother's garden, she has reflected her mother's parenting skills. Another incident was from Mrs. Tisdale asking a question to her students on what their biggest crime they have committed. A student responds with him “shooting a squirrel with a BB gun-wounding it and leaving it to die. He can outrun the sneaky attempt to cover up an accident, but he can’t outrun the fact that he was coward.” His act of cowardness fabricated into making himself acknowledge the fact that he is unable to run away from the guilt that will be haunt him as a result of trauma he received after committing the murder. In comparison to The Five People You Meet IN Heaven, Eddie has a strong memory about seeing a child inside the burning house which made him feel obligated on saving her in Philippines.

As the man's wife points out before her suicide, "the boy was all that stood between him and death" (25). In other words, the man's thirst for survival is fueled by the love for his son. While the man may expect his own death, he lives in order to seek life for the boy. Unlike his wife in her suicide, the man does not wish to "save" his son from civilization's destruction, rape, murder, and cannibalism by killing him preemptively. To the father, suicide is only an option for the son if he is to be imminently harmed.
Admittedly, as sympathetic and understanding as readers are for Lennie, Lennie is still a danger to other lives. In many instances in the book, Lennie accidentally kills many lives but does not realize the significance of his mistakes. Lennie is a man with the mind of a child with an unequal match of formidable strength, hence committing murder without meaning to do so. In the scene when Lennie kills Curley’s wife, he has the same slightly panicked reaction as when he killed the rat and puppy earlier in the book. Readers then realize that Lennie doesn’t understand the difference between killing an animal and murdering a human, therefore putting other lives at risk.

Kiowa is carrying the fact that he really does not trust white people at times because of the past mistakes they have made.
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.
