By: Sofia Bernal, Isabella Ramirez and Sara Vieira.
What is sacrifice?
Forfeiture of something highly valued for the sake of one considered to have a greater value or claim.
Sacrifice in the book
The plot of The Hunger Games revolves around Katniss Everdeen, she demonstrates her courage and her willingness to take risks and at times and sacrificing her needs for the sake of others, without ever giving up on herself or seeing herself as less valuable than others. Katniss also sacrifices her freedom, her possible future with Gale, and her life to take Prims places at the reaping and the sacrifice each district makes loosing two of their own. For us The Hunger Games are just full of sacrifices.
It all starts with Katniss Everdeen volunteering to take her sister’s place in a dangerous fight for life. In this competition, twenty-four tributes were placed in arena where they had to kill each other and only one would survive.
Once in the Games, Katniss was willing to give up her security to put flowers on Rue’s dead body, at the same time Rue also sacrificed for Katniss because she was willing to stay while Katniss blew up the career's supplies.
When Katniss father died and her mom got depressed, she had to sacrifice her childhood, so that her family had enough food and supplies to survive.
When Peeta threw a piece of burnt bread to Katniss when her family was starving, and as a result of Peetas actions, his mom hit him.
When Peeta was about to die on the games because of Cato's attack, Katniss risked her life, the possiblity of winning the games for saving Peeta.
Katniss not also sacrificed her lifestyle in district 12, but also she sacrificed her identity and her way of being and her real thoughts about the Capitol, just for gaining sponsors and popularity because that was a very important part of the games.
When the hunger games were about to end and the announcement of the new rule, Peeta and Katniss were going to eat poisonous berries for killing themselves, so that the Capitol would understand that they didn't own the tributes.
The main sacrifice for us was when Katniss volunteered as a tribute, when her little sister Prim was chosen in the ballot in the reaping, this is what gives the book its link with sacrifice, becacuse Katniss risked her life showing her love for her sister.
"I volunteer!" I gasp. "I volunteer as tribute!"
“How Katniss sacrificed herself for her sister. How you've both successfully struggled to overcome the barbarism of your district."
“I want to do something, right here, right now, to shame them, to make them accountable, to show the Capitol that whatever they do or force us to do that there is a part of every tribute they can't own. That Rue was more than a piece in their Games. And so am I.”
“This bread came from District 11. I cautiously lift the still warm loaf. What must it have cost the people of District 11 who can't even feed themselves? How many would've had to do without to scrape up a coin to put in the collection for this one loaf?”
“I spread out my fingers, and the dark berries glisten in the sun. I give Peeta's hand one last squeeze as a signal, as a good-bye, and we begin counting. "One." Maybe I'm wrong. "Two." Maybe they don't care if we both die. "Three!" It's too late to change my mind. I lift my hand to m mouth, taking one last look at the world. The berries have just passed my lips when the trumpets begin to blare.”
