Suicide occurs within our world on a daily basis, and letting our children watch successful, vengeful suicide is wrong. Parents need to monitor what the children of our nation understand about suicide. The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention states that around 121 people commit suicide a day. It is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, and suicide causes about 51 billion dollars each year. On average the white males die through suicide by 3.5xs more than white women. Even though males often die by suicide four times more likely than females, females attempt suicide 3 times more. While 13 Reasons Why focuses on Hannah Baker, the main character who commits suicide in the end, is a white teenage female; her portrayal of death is unrealistic and offensive to the suicide world of today.
Most people never thought of what it would be like to have your wish come true, and at the same time having to face the scariest thing as a kid all in just two days. One thing is true for a fact that we do love our family greatly, yet we all have taken our anger out on our family also by saying some things that we probably shouldn't have, causing our emotions to take over and have no control over what happens next. Therefore, in a film as a kid Kevin McCallister (a 9-year-old) decides to take all his anger out on his family after being name called and teased. His mom then sends him to the attic where he then tells her that he hates his family, but that he also wishes to never see them again. His wish did, in fact, come true, he was left home alone on Christmas Eve while his family was on vacation. The thing is he has to face two robbers in an event of the battle of good vs. evil just to save his house, nor does he have anyone to look up too. But does he? Having no family there makes it even harder, and Kevin soon realizes that maybe his family is what matters most. This film is called Home Alone, In the film Home Alone, the storyteller uses the archetype the “hero's” regrets and the “mentor's” advice to illustrate that we as humans tend to say rude and hurtful things towards the people we love the most when we are angry because we don’t appreciate what we have until we lose it, and we don’t realize how thankful we are for our family until something happens where we need

Having nowhere to go, nothing to eat, no money to spend and having no one around you to help. Your one solution is to spend the night on the filthy sidewalks we walk on a daily basis. Carefully listening to the clamor and racket of cars driving as they honk and blinker their headlights.
