“Fahrenheit 451” Eulogy for Clarisse McClellan
I resided in a boring, ignorant world. My life was always the exact same. I never ever really saw the world until I fulfilled Clarisse McClellan. She was not like the others. She didn’t follow their mindless routine. She didn’t simply exist like everybody else; she lived. She didn’t simply look; she observed. She believed. She felt. Clarisse gave me something to live for. She revealed me how to live and not simply exist. Ever since Clarisse vanished, life has actually felt empty. She was my life due to the fact that I had no life before her.
However despite the fact that she is gone, the concept still lives. The idea that you can live a life; a delighted life. That you don’t need to follow the absent-minded regimen of all the others. Clarisse McClellan believed individuals need to accept life and live it to the fullest extent. The society she resided in didn’t believe this’ they informed her she was weird and anti-social just because she was different. Clarisse ended up being eliminated because of this. She was eliminated due to the fact that she believed in living, believing, observing, sensation, considering, questioning.
Inn my mind, Clarisse McClellan is a martyr; she refused to adapt to the norm despite the fact that she would be killed if she didn’t. Clarisse offered me hope. She gave me hope that perhaps there is something more out there. Possibly there is actually some depth to our world. Possibly I can live. Now I can live. Clarisse McClellan provided me life and her own was drawn from her. I will always remember her. I will always remember how my life started. My life began with a lady called Clarisse.
