One of the things that really stood out to me was near the end of the book, where Dr. Wilson spoke about struggles and distress. He mentioned that God will comfort us amidst our distress. What makes this so great is
In the novel Milkweed by Jerry Spinelli, the reader learns about the light that mankind can find in the darkness of life, this notion is further shown through the characters in this story, as they learn to express their light with gratitude in times of distress which showed the reader that in times of great conflict mankind must create happiness to maintain optimism. This is pointed out when Misha overcame conflict with acceptance into a new community, or acceptance into a family. Janina also conveys happiness when being allowed human relationships, allowing her to overcome problematic issues in her life. Overcoming conflict and opening up to happiness in this story was similar to the freeness and joy of a souring milkweed.
This simply isn't the case though, if we take a look at the moods alone, we can find quite a lot of depth in this masterfully crafted tale. Throughout the story , we often end up with this uncomfortable and uneasy feeling, it can almost seem pessimistic at times. This is done in large part through the way things are described, and not just near the beginning or ending,

Joy Hopewell is the thirty-three-year-old maimed child of Ms. Hopewell in Flannery O'Connor's short story, Good Country People." Joy is characterized throughout the story as an ungrateful, childish adult with a bad temperament. Joy's leg has been shot off in a hunting accident over twenty years ago, and it can be presumed that at least some of her behavioral issues can be attributed to the accident.
They had to get up early and start moving quickly. When possible, they hunted and gathered supplies for the trip when they were running low. They traveled through thick and thin and depending on the difficulty of the day, it changed their moods. On days in which it rained, they were not as cheerful or confident. However, on days with good weather and good things happening, they were bright and cheery. Like when it was an unpleasant day for Mary, she was crying and unhappy. Yet, on a day in which weather was good, she claimed she felt better and wrote like she was no longer
Imitation of some sort is all too common now, even as we try to rebel in acts of noncomformity from the rest of society. Transcendentalism takes noncomformity further, tearing down ideas of living life to the fullest by saying one has truly lived only if life has been lived

In Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury an important theme is happiness. The main character, Guy Montag, is a fireman whose job is to burn books. Montag realizes the importance of the books he has burned and how happy they can make people. Happiness is a theme because everyone in Montag’s community is looking for happiness, because the people who read books are happy, even though books have been outlawed, and because Montag changes his whole life when he began to question his happiness.
In the middle of the story, you can see that people having power and people that are happy can have an ending result of suffering. “That was awesome, Nudge said happily.” After this Iggy then said, “Well, I hate it.” The suffering part of this is what Iggy said and this is after Nudge says that she is happy. This shows that happiness from others can result in suffering. I also noticed that power can result in suffering as well. I was thinking this when, “At least they gave you a big crate” was said by Angel. The details in this scene show that the characters in the middle of the story were indeed suffering because of the power people have over the flock and being able to force the flock to do things that they don’t want to
This years I have chosen washington's troops in the pursuit of happyness. Not just happiness, but the pursuit. As I start to talk to some of these other men, they look a little tired but not a ton as of a few days without sleep. Then i found out why.
The use of character, style, and point of view that Atwood uses to write this story gives you a real feeling of pity for these characters, only having horrible lows or average highs in their relationships. It appears that there is no great place to be in her story. Reading this story for the first time, the reader could assume Atwood has an obsession with bad relationships, boring average marriages, and death. The key to understanding what the author is trying to convey is realizing how the stories all link together and how they all lack the essence of excitement and desire. The author brings the idea that without focusing on the “how and why” of life and only focusing on the “what, what, what” will leave you with an average
I really enjoyed this, and want to know more. It's definitely a story with a good premise. I like the opening paragraph, descriptive, makes me curious, and with the technical business had me feeling like I was in a professional's hands. This is interesting, I didn't understand all about the junk
