You can write less than 300 words for this question, and another 200 words to reply another my classmate’s work which is below.
In “Burying the Living with the Dead: Security, Survival, the Sanction of Violence,” Steven Pokornowski discusses the reflection of post-9/11 America in AMC’s The Walking Dead. He covers the effects of Carl growing up in the post-apocalyptic world and seeing death and violence as normal. Are there larger social and cultural impacts to raising a child today in the post-9/11 world, considering perhaps threats to schools and active shooter drills?
