In a recent study statistics show that over 36000 people in the United States die by suicide every year While this may be a frightening discovery there are people that dont turn to suicide for many reasons Just as Cormac McCarthy implies in his novel The Road people can survive through anything as long as they have something worth fighting for Three examples in McCarthys novel prove this the womans advice about protecting the boy the mans lecture about being the boys assigned protector and the boys talk with the man about carrying the fire The man one of McCarthys characters had something worth fighting for the boy To start off the womans advice about protecting the boy shows that people can survive through anything as long as they have something worth fighting for The text reads The one thing I can tell you is that you wont survive for yourself I know because I would never have come this far A person who had no one would be well advised to cobble together some passable ghost Breathe it into being and coax it along with words of love Offer it each phantom crumb and shield it from harm with your body The woman is telling the man the only reason why she came this far and the only reason the man is going to continue on the boy The man does just as she asked he protects the boy from everything that he can and offers him phantom crumbs whether it is telling him of the past world or finding him an old soda but he does it only out of love Just in the same way the mans lecture confirms what the womans advice said he has to protect the boy and thats whats going to keep him alive Right after the man shoots a guy for grabbing the boy he says You wanted to know what the bad guys looked like Now
