books: the many worlds of albie bright & We are all made of molecules
Death is a very sad thing that happens in a persons life and it can cause many problems like depression and sadness for the people that its effecting.
death poem (jolie)
This poem relates to how death effects a person because it talks about how the author of this poem lost someone close and is now depressed/sad. The poem says "I miss you more than i thought i would, and cried much more than i thought i could.'' This relates to my book because after the mom died of cancer her son was very sad and didn't know what had just happen
Quote from book- We are all made of Molecules
My quote relates to the controversy because it shows how hurt Stewart was when he thought his mother was pregnant and had a baby ,but instead she had cancer growing day by day in her which eventualy killed her.
song: 1-800-237-8255 by Logic (ava)
This song shows how people are affected by a loved one/someone they know die. In the song it says" I feel like i'm out of my mind I feel like my life ain't mind." and it also says "I don't want to be alive I just wanna die today." This shows you how this artist is feeling about one of his friends committing suicide and dying. He was very sad after this happened and even thought of taking his own life. This song relates to my book "The Many Worlds of Albie Bright" because in both the song and my book death affects a person so much. After the main character in "The Many Worlds of Albie Bright" watches his mom die the text says "Then she was gone, leaving a super massive black hole behind." (Edge 6) This shows how after Albies mom dies there was nothing but complete darkness/sadness for him and in the song it says " i'm hurting deep down but i cant show it." These quotes show how sad both people were.
In my article the authors son dies from a misdiagnosis of the flu. The text says ''My beautiful 16-year old son came home from school complaining of a headache and a fever. The doctor diagnosed him with the flu. But it wasn’t. Sometime during the night, my boy was taken from me forever. I found him the next morning in his bed, lifeless. The misdiagnosis was actually a swift and deadly form of bacterial meningitis.'' (Peckinpah)
After this mother lost her son she lost a part of herself too. The text says "I remember thinking… how can I ever be happy again? I felt as though my pain was visible to others, and I would forever be wearing grief as a mask and a tagline." (Peckinpah)
It took her years to heal from this tragic event and stop mourning over her son and actually get her life together. She writes "Healing doesn’t mean you’ll never feel the sadness. It means you’ll be able to have memories without attaching intense despair." (Peckinpah)
This article relates back to my book because in the article and book the mom and the albie just feel absolutely nothing when one of their family members/loved one dies. The text in "The Many Worlds of Albie Bright" says she left " a super massive black hole behind." (edge 6) I chose this quote because in black holes there is absolutely nothing in them and that exactly what the mom and albie felt. nothing.
Jolie's poem-I miss you more than i thought
I would, and I cried much more than I thought I could. Time heals all. That's what they say! But loves the price and so I pay. Sometimes I smile I know your near. Its not enough your not here. The years roll by I'm not the same yet in my heart you still remain. You left love behind when you flew away but a piece of me
You too that day
Jolie's quote-"But, it wasn't a baby growing inside her it was cancer it had started in her ovaries, and by the time they caught it, it had spread. she dies a year and three months later."
Did you know that over 3,000 people commit suicide a day?That's one person per every 40 seconds
Suicide Method 2012-2016
About 155,00 people die everyday and over 2.4 million die each year in the US
It takes a village to survive the loss of a child. Unfortunately, I know. Dylan, my son, my only child, the light of my life, was killed in a car accident at the gate of his apartment complex on May 22, 2006. Dylan is forever 19 years old. My life became two parts – before May 22, 2006, and after May 22, 2006. I can’t even think about the actual day. This is the first year of my life after Dylan’s death. I hope to continue to update my story every year. It’s good that I waited 10 months after Dylan’s death to start documenting, because it’s clear to me that I didn’t even know what I was doing. Yes, I was working and doing everything required for surviving, but like many have heard me say, I felt like I was on the outside looking in. I’ve been like an addict. Trying anything I could get my hands on that I thought would help. But I was looking for something that didn’t exist. Nothing was going to bring my Dylan back. I’ve read grief books, talked to Dylan through mediums, psychics, and numerology specialists, learned meditation, taken medication, been acupunctured, been in support groups, had private counseling, been drinking with other mothers whose kids have been killed, and spent money like it grows on trees.
This part of my article relates to our controversy because our controversy is about death and how it shapes people's lives and how they feel. In the article it explains how the women is feeling when she lost her son.
Over 1 million people die every year from suicide
