Transcript of city of ember 10 connections
in America getting a job is a hge part of becoming an adult normally a kid in the U.S gets a job mid way through high school to pay for gas and other amenity's In the book graduation and jobs also play a big role but in different ways in the book graduation happens much earlier when your around 12 and you don't get a party and your family doesn't come, although it is a huge part of you life in ember. getting a job is a whole other story to get a job in the city you draw from a bag and whatever you draw thats your job no choice, in the book lina the main character draws pipework worker one of the worst jobs in ember but she trades with doon harrow for messenger her dream job this starts a long and lasting freindship between doon and lina the story is about Ember, an underground city that is slowly running out of power and supplies due to its aging infrastructure. The young protagonist, Lina Mayfleet, and her friend, Doon Harrow, manage to decode a message and follow clues left behind by the original builders of the City of Ember that would lead them to safety in the outside world. Loss of life In my book the loss of life is very relevant lina the main characters parents are deceased and doon harrow another main protagonist mother is also deceased and this plays a huge role in the book mostly with lina who has a small sister, they live with linas grandmother which is slowly becoming to old to take care of linas sister which wouldn't be a problem if both her parents where alive. half way through the book linas grandmother passes away leaving lina who has job responsibility's to take care of her sister until a close family friend moves in and takes care of her. Death is and inevitably in life but once you die the people you leave behind will have to keep living and handle the loss. The death of a loved one is one of the most challenging events an individual can experience, according to Mental Health America. The grieving period following a significant loss is typically marked by intense emotions and increased stress. While there is no fixed time line or process for grieving, many individuals experience grief in stages that gradually progress from shock to acceptance. Being a "kid" In the book lina and doon are often brushed aside by older people in ember simply because they are young when in fact thay where right about mostly everything they said. several times in the book lina tries to tell the mayor he grandmother and even the city guard that she thought there was a way out but not one person listend to her because they said she was to young or her imagination was running wild but in the end she was right. In the real world you find mostly the same thing adults seem to look past kids even if there ideas are valid and smart. adults just think that since there older they are smarter than kids but in some cases that's not true kids often have great ideas that work Venturing into the unknown in the city of ember a central idea is discovery and venturing into the unknown in several different ways. in the book the out side regions of ember are in a shroud of darkness only one person has ventured out and he returned crazy with stories of giant monsters, the more obvious one is linas and doons adventure to get to the city's exit to the surface which was a brave and harrowing journey of discovery. Taking care of the elderly Personal needs over the needs of others In the book lina must take care of her grandma when she becomes ill. Her grandma must be fed and bathed but she doesn't care because her grandma took care of her and her little sister poppy when linas parents past away when she was little. in the book linas grandma still lives in linas house even when she becomes ill the doctor comes to there house to visit and give lina medicine for her grandma. Taking care of older people in the real world is much different. often when a person gets to old they go live in a nursing home where people take care of them by giving them food medicine and baths, almost never do familys let them live in there house or take care of them when they are very sick or dieing. If they are to sick the elderly would have to go to a hospital where nurses would take care of them not the family. In the city of ember lina must make many decisions
and the theme of personal needs and wants is very relative one good example is that lina loves to draw and when she hears that a vendor might have some colored pencils but they are expensive and the money she has is for food for her grandma and poppy and she is torn but in the end she buys them and cant get as much food as she needs and while shes buying them poopy runs away. another example is the mayor he could use extra supplies to feed and cloth his people but insted he keeps them for himself. The same rules apply in the real world in small and large scales some small scale examples would be even though dad wants a 50 in tv he couldn't buy food for his family or if you buy and expensive meal for yourself instead of buying food for you and your friend who dosent have money. Some large examples would be going to war for another country, it would help the country but your citizens would die in the process. Over coming fear Fear and over coming it plays a big role in the city of ember. many times in the book lina or doon must overcome a fear some good examples are linas fear of darkness and whether when the city enters a blackout if the light will come back on this is a fear that most people in the city of ember have but its not till the end that lina overcomes this fear while in the mayors office being held prisoner the lights go out and instead of being scared she escapes and leaves the city. One of the more obvious examples is the fear of going beyond what you know lina and doon are both scared of leaving the city and finding what is out there but they overcome this fear and leave the city. In real life overcoming fear is the same and different in many ways and very between people and times kids today may define overcoming fear as presenting in front of class or riding a scary roller coaster as kids in the pas would define it as traveling across the west or going to the new world or just walking home from school and not getting eaten by a wolf. But one thing we can all agree on is that if humas had never overcome fear we would have never survived the caveman would not have left his cave or killed a wooly mammoth so overcoming fear is very important In the real world going into the unknown is the thing that shoots the human race forward from the primitive man venturing across mountains to crossing the ocean then the moon venturing into the unknown built America by venturing west and discovering gold and founding city's like Denver and Los angeles venturing into the unknown founded America if Christopher Columbus didn't venture into the unknown we would not be here.
