This concept is clearly described in the book The things They Carried which is written by Tim O’Brien. There are short stories, which are connected with each other with one common topic. It explains the readers how valuable are the things around us, which we prefer not to pay attention to, or consider them as the necessity ones. For example, during the wars, soldiers began to consider the term “necessity” as rather slipper term. Soldiers should have power and find the efforts to fight in spite of time, location and their physical form. Of course, such words and thought can hurt the soldiers of any country. But still their weakness and inattention can lead them to death. Author in his book remains Ted Lavender, whose death is like a memory, which is remembered in the stories. And ted was among those soldiers, who were ready to fight until the end. When he was killed, it had no matter what was the weight of the bullet, the face of the killer or location. Such necessity things like belief in his heart, love to the family members and protection the native country. These elements become on the first place, only they become the most important. But in most of situations we don’t pay enough attention to them.
In the book of legendary author, necessity is described by its advantageous and disadvantageous aspects. Each individual has its own burden, and in this book are mentioned the situations when the humans can check it. Ted O’Brien allows readers to consider about the real sense of necessity and its value in our lives. He gives a lot of examples to the readers. Firstly they read them, and then go fur, beginning to understand the difference between really necessities and feelings which caused by emotions. In the book The Things They Carried, author tries to give the certain imaginations, which he wants readers to have. And this is rather good because often we pay a lot of attention to the things, activities and problems, which are not valuable in our lives. But it often happens that humans are focused on the career, money, well-paid job and etc that they forget about the main things. Especially this problem concerns child, whose parents are always at work, but children require more attention. Children don’t want to play with the most expensive toys; they want to play with the parents. But often they must spend time with nurses.
The book really gives a lot of examples, and while reading people have different emotions and feelings. Someone starts to pay more attention to the certain aspects of life, and someone starts to rebuild the whole lifestyle.
