Katniss never fully came into her own in Mockingjay. In Hunger Games, she was a floundering yet passionate girl desperate to protect her family and stay alive. While she made a lot of mistakes, we loved her even more for them, because we saw her struggle, we believed her desperation and her motives, and we wanted her to succeed. We saw her near-double-suicide not as the easy way out, but the final spit in the face of the Capitol that had pulled the strings for so long. In Catching Fire, the story was fast-paced and intense, Katniss still struggling but really maturing as a fighter and a person.
The Human Service field is a female dominated field according to Forbes.com and after observing my life experience with the movie When Harry met Sally, I see myself as a prime example of this daily in almost everything that I do. I realize that I am a very sympathetic person and just how much that has to do with my communication skills. For example; I am a mother and when my son gets hurt I generally run to comfort him and kiss it to make it all better, while his father on the other hand will tell him to get up and be tough.

A sibling will be the one you are ready to kill one minute and can't live without the next. We go through everything in life together and are still there for one another even when times are the worst imaginable or amazingly wonderful. It is like no other relationship a person will ever have. I thank God I have my sister, Jana, but there are those who are not fortunate enough to have siblings. I taught Jana how to drive a stick shift and laughed at her because she didn't know how to boil water.
I bought her a hot-water heater, and another one when it wore out…They were tiny things, inconsequential things. I did them because I was supposed to, because it was my turn to do things for her, and because I was trying to make up for any wrong I had ever done her.” (Bragg, pg. 151) His mother made many sacrifices for her boys when she was growing up, and Bragg was compassionate to his mother.
