    One of the Major Similarities is how the authors addressed the mental state of the people that was affected by the death of someone. For Example, In Yellow Birds, the Author showed how much the death of Murph impacted Bartle greatly. That was also the case in the first article because it showed plenty examples of how their families were example. Example of that would be and I quote “Patricia Roberts 's son, Specialist Jamaal R. Addison, was part of the invasion of 2003 when his convoy was ambushed by Iraqi forces near Nasiriya. The attack became famous because six soldiers, including Pfc. Jessica D. Lynch, were captured. But nine others from the unit died during and after the ambush, including Specialist Addison, who was 22. After his death, Ms. Roberts, 45, said she lost her job as a customer service representative because she frequently broke down in tears. “As you can see, the death of her son impacted her life so much to point that she lost her job because she couldn’t keep her composure.
