If you have not read The Hunger Games or watched the Movie, I will attempt to make this post relevant even to you.
Imagine if you will every year 2 random children aged 12-18 from 12 districts were picked to fight to the death? The numbers are lower as it is the end of the world…So each year for 7 years your child could die. 24 enter: 1 man leave. (That is the nature of the Hunger Games.)
My question: If a parent has 2 children, one was picked the year before and dies; and the next year, or even a few years down the road, the other child’s name has been chosen. Should that child be excluded from the “Reaping” ?
Second question: Imagine you have 2 children. Your eldest is called to the “games” and on the train ride there, they die. Now it really isn’t the games fault…it was the train that killed the child. Should your second child be excluded in this case?
So what are your answers? Any solutions? What would you do?
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day! E
