Before I Fall and The Lovely Bones
Transcript of Before I Fall and The Lovely Bones
The Lovely Bones Stacie
Cain The Lovely Bones Before I Fall What if Sam Kingston What if? They say that before you die your whole
life will flash before your eyes. Will you be
reliving your greatest hits or those which are
better left buried? Or will you see a memory you never knew you remembered?
"The thing is, you don't get to know. It's not like you wake up with a bad feeling in your stomach...you don't remember to tell your parents that you love them or-in my case-remember to say good-bye to them at all."
(Oliver, 7) Samantha Kingston and Susie Salmon
learn from family, love and friends
that life will never be perfect so
live your life how you want
because anything can happen. " I guess that's what saying good-bye is always like-like
jumping off an edge. The worst part is making the choice
to do it. Once your in the air, there's nothing you can do
but let go...Maybe you can afford it. Maybe for you there's
a tomorrow...one thousand tomorrows...so much time you can bathe in it...roll around in it...so much time you
can waste it. But for some of us there's only today. And
the truth is you never really know...Things change after you die, though-I guess because dying is about the loneliest thing you can do." (Oliver 268,417) "...is what I did really so bad? So bad I deserved to die?
...is what I did really so much worse than what anyone
else does?" (Oliver, 81)
"My eight year-old sister is braver than I am. She's
probably braver than most of the people at Jefferson High. I wonder if that will ever change..." (Oliver, 274)
"I vowed after that day I would be your hero too, no matter how long it took." (Oliver, 340) It was a cold snowy afternoon. Susie took a shortcut home from school. Her neighbor was in the cornfield and brought her to his underground shelter covered with dirt. As she tried to escape he raped and killed her. As she lives in her personal heaven, she helps her father grieve and seek the answers surrounding her death. Samantha Kingston has it all: the
school's most crush-worthy boyfriend, three best friends, and first at everything. Friday, February 12, should be an ordinary day in her perfect life. Instead its her last. But she gets another chance. In fact, she gets seven chances to relive her last day. She finds the truth of her death and the true value of everything she lost. Susie Salmon "I wasn't lost, or frozen, or
gone, I was alive; I was alive
in my own perfect world." "There was one thing my murderer didn't understand; he didn't understand how much a father could love his child."
"Nobody notices when we leave. I mean the moment when we really choose to go. At best you might feel a whisper, or the wave of a whisper, undulating down."
"I was slipping away, that's what it felt like, life was leaving me but I wasn't afraid; then I remembered: 'There was something I was meant to do; somewhere I was meant to be.'" Questions 1. What would you do if you had seven chances to relive the same day?
2. What would you do if you were Susie? Would you try to escape?
3. What do you want to see when your life flashes before your eyes?
