One reason survivors of life and death situation should not feel the guilt is illogical. The survivors did not cause this tragedy. In the Article Moral Logic by Nancy Sherman, A man who had a dream to go on a ship and sail all the way to antarctica but ended up not making. In the text, Moral Logic on a page 156 it states that “In all this might say guilt subjective guilt has a redemptive side. This shows that survivor's guilt can be redeemed. This proves that even if it's not your fault you can still accomplish your fear.
One reason survivors of life and death situations should feel survivor's guilt is because it shows that the victim cares. The editorial text “The Moral Logic of Survivor Guilt”, by Nancy Sherman, explains how normal survivor guilt is and the good things it can do for a person. In this story it says “The anguish of guilt, its sheer pain, is a way of sharing some of the ill fate”. This shows that even though guilt can feel horrible, feeling the guilt means that the person cares enough about the situation to feel survivor's guilt. This proves survivors of life and death situations should feel survivor's guilt because having a guilty feeling shows that they cared. Often times, caring can help a person through their situation because being able to care about what happened shows that the person didn’t do it on purpose, and that they are still good people.
The State of Texas was the first to perform a lethal injection execution and it is ranked first in executions as far back as 1976. Approximately, there have been over two hundred and eighty death penalties and a hundred and sixteen executions from 1982. Lethal injection involves injecting one or a variety of drugs into the person for the main cause of immediate death to him or her ("Texas | Death Penalty Information Center"). Characteristically, three drugs have been used. Sodium thiopental is an anesthesia which causes sleep, injecting with pancuronium bromide for paralysis of the muscles and to cause respiratory failure and the potassium chloride stops the heart from pumping. An intravenous salty drip is started in the arm of the prisoner
Worded perfectly by The Scientific American, a magazine analyzing controversial issues in America said, “About two thirds of the states use a combination of barbituric, paralytic and toxic agents for executions, despite a lack of scientific evidence supporting their effectiveness.” The procedure is still subject to FDA approval, the agency has avoided questions ruling on the mixtures efficacy in “delivering a merciful death” (citation). This brings to light a harsh topic: is lethal injection truly cruel and unusual? Human Rights Watch is an international non government aided organization dedicated to protecting and establishing the appearance of human rights around the world. The report the HRW released, “So Long as They Die: Lethal Injection in the United States” (citation) The report highlighted a fact not a lot of people consider, “Prisoners in the United States are executed by means that the American Veterinary Medical Association regards as too cruel to use on cats and dogs.” A lot of the civilians who simply only read about death
GUILT is an emotion one gets when he/she believes or discovers that he/she did a wrong deed and valuated his/her standard social, moral or penal code ( Chaplin, 1975). The intensity of guilt varies from one person to another. When some individuals survive a horrific event, they get this overwhelming feeling of guilt and blame themselves for surviving the abominable situation that others did not survive. This state of mind is a mental condition and is sometimes termed as imagined guilt. It may be found in survivors of holocausts, natural disasters, mass murder and pandemics e.g. the 9/11 Oklahoma City bombings. While this guilt might not be experienced by everyone, it a research based
Sentencing in the judicial system forced a sentencing for a definite term indicating a fixed time sentencing, which gave the defendant a fixed number of years to serve (Siegel, L. 2014). For example, the sentencing could be up to 20 years for robbery or a repeat offender could serve a 15 year term or a robbery with less violations might receive as little as 5 years (Siegel, L. 2014). Determinate sentencing actually reduced imprisonment (Siegel, L. and Bartollas, C. 2014).

Many people that go through a traumatic event and feel guilty for surviving. People argue whether or not survivors of life and death situations should feel survivors guilt. Survivors guilt is when a survivor of life and death situations feel guilty when they survived and others did not. Survivors guilt should be felt by survivors of life and death situations.

There is no one around, and you are helpless with several broken bones. All you can feel is pain and agony. The only thing you can focus on is the blood from the gash in your leg. Your vision is getting blurry and it starts to become harder to concentrate. The smell of burning rubble right beside you. Everything start to become a blur and you're fading in and out of reality. Slowing losing consciousness and you start to drift away from your body. While most people hate the thought of dying, to the point of avoiding the idea of death in total. There's death all around us, and we don't realize it. Most people will pass away peacefully, yet we don’t think about some of the worst ways to die. All we think about is when will our time to die be?
The most important influence should that all measures to cure the illness or end the pain have been exhausted, followed closely by the person's asking to die or having asked to die. The final factor should be the will of family members or close friends. This should not be an important factor in order to prevent cost-conscious loved ones from ending the life of the patient just to end their financial burden. Ultimately, and in best-case scenarios, the decisions to die should be up to the patient to make. Otherwise, the line separating America, the free nation where a person can die with dignity, and Nazi Germany, a society in which hundreds of Jews are forced to commit suicide, become
