    Like many movies I have seen before “The Hurt Locker” begins with a quote. The quote states simply “War is a Drug.” Although not true for everyone, some find it almost impossible to return home and begin their normal lives once again. For Staff Sergeant William James played by Jeremy Renner, war was a drug, and it was as if he found pleasure while under enemy fire and defusing bombs.

Its most noticeable theme is established immediately with the film’s opening quotation, “The rush of battle is a potent and often…

    until I faced life more for myself, that I noticed how so many things in my life that used to feel so bright were coated in black. Each year that I lived cognizant of the unrelenting illness that was cast onto my mom, I felt as if someone colored on a portion of my mind with a black marker and took my rose-tinted glasses, cracked them, and drove them into my eyes. I will never be sure if that was just me growing up or having a mother that suffered from depression or both. When I was 14 years…
