Debt, not of the financial sort necessarily but in the form of owing someone for their help, comes up multiple times in the novel. The most significant instance concerns Katniss ’s first encounter with Peeta. Katniss was starving at the time, and Peeta essentially saved her life by giving her bread from his family’s bakery. Moreover, he apparently burned bread deliberately to help Katniss, despite knowing he would be punished as a result. Katniss describes how she has felt indebted to Peeta ever since. Thresh also brings up debt when he spares Katniss after learning about her alliance with Rue. He says they are “even” and no more is “owed.”

These feelings of indebtedness, Katniss suggests, stem from the experience of growing up poor. When Peeta expresses his surprise that Thresh let Katniss live, Katniss tells him he wouldn’t understand because he’s “always had enough.” What she implies is that Peeta has never been dependent on another person for either his or his loved ones’ wellbeing, so he can’t understand the feelings of debt associated with that experience. The tessera system plays into this mentality of indebtedness. The poor take extra food rations essentially on credit, which is paid back in the form of extra entries into the reaping. They often need the tessera in order to survive, so they take them knowing they will have to pay back what is essentially a debt later.

    Katniss lives with her mother and younger sister Prim in District 12, the poorest of the districts. Ever since her father''s death, she has been the family provider, hunting illegally in the woods outside the district with her friend Gale. The novel begins on the day of the "reaping," when each District must select two tributes, one male and one female, to represent them in the Hunger Games. When Prim is selected as the female tribute, Katniss offers herself as volunteer and is allowed to serve as tribute alongside Peeta, a middle class boy from the district.

    The remainder of Part One of the novel follows the children as they are both trained for the brutal games and groomed to portray a certain image for the audience. She forces herself into a stoic determination to win, a philosophy made difficult by the kindly Peeta. The relationship is made even more fraught when Peeta confesses during a live interview that he has a crush on Katniss. Though she fears making emotional connections that could compromise her desire to win, she agrees to portray the image of a unified front, an idea proposed by their sponsor Haymitch.

    I think that thesis might be hard to support - what evidence can you provide that "almost every kid in public schools today has seen some type of violence"? I personally believe that the reason they should not be banned is because the only purpose of the violence is to show the power and cruelty of an oppressive, totalitarian government, and the violence is in no way condoned in the novel. This is arguable. If you want to present the counterargument (why it should be banned), make that your second paragraph, and then the third paragraph could show why that is a weak argument (the violence is always portrayed as wrong), and the fourth paragraph could expand on how the government uses it to control people. Here is a great site for quotes you can use to provide evidence: http://www.shmoop.com/hunger-games/

    Katniss lives with her mother and younger sister Prim in District 12, the poorest of the districts.

Though she fears making emotional connections that could compromise her desire to win, she agrees to portray the image of a unified front, an idea proposed by their sponsor Haymitch.

    Then something unexpected happens. At least, I don’t expect it because I don’t think of District 12 as a place that cares about me. But a shift has occurred since I stepped up to take Prim’s place, and now it seems I have become someone precious. At first one, then another, then almost every member of the crowd touches the three middle fingers of their left hand to their lips and holds it out to me. It is an old and rarely used gesture of our district, occasionally seen at funerals. I means thanks, it means admiration, it means good-bye to someone you love. (2.17)

    By making a huge personal sacrifice, and taking her sister’s place, Katniss has changed the way her community sees her. They give her respect, admiration, and love for the choice she has made.

    Essay is a personal point of view of an author on some particular topic. In most cases essay topics are not only tough to be revealed, but also hard to be understood by most of the people. Thus, in order to reveal the topic of an essay one needs to grasp the key points and the basics of the theme chosen.

    Topics for an essay
    Many essays can be written on a single theme. They can differ in their essence, form, style of writing, meaning, trend and having different aims. These differences depend on the essay type.
