Hunger Games Friday: The Curiously Short Life & Death of Primrose Everdeen

Primrose Everdeen (Prim) is the younger sister to Katniss Everdeen and the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Everdeen. She is twelve years old when the series begins and she is only fourteen when she dies in the infamous two-timed bombing of the Capitol.

Because of her youth and her feminine appearance of a young, naive, helpful, little girl, many scholars skirt over her importance to The Hunger Games trilogy. However, most fans of the trilogy would instantly state that Prim is crucial to the entire series.

In a poll, 62% of participants voted that Primrose Everdeen was crucial to the story line.

After all, if Prim had never been reaped, Katniss would never have volunteered. If Katniss had not gone into the Games with Peeta and defied the Capitol, the revolution would never have ignited. If the revolution had never begun, the Games would continue on with President Snow in charge of Panem. In one of my last chapters, I discuss how every action that Katniss takes is in protection of her sister Prim, primarily because Prim represents hope. It is this hope, intimately connected with agency, that draws readers into the world of Panem.

Easter – Behold the Empty Grave!

On the third day after the death of Jesus Christ, a group of followers made up of women went to the tomb to honor his body with spices and oils. However, they were met with an opened tomb and an empty grave. Then, suddenly, an angel appeared to them, and said,

“Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ”

We celebrate Easter to remember and celebrate that death could not beat Jesus! Jesus rose again from the grave and just as he did, we will also. For those who believe in Jesus Christ, we will not be defeated by Death. Christ will raise us up also after our deaths and we will spend eternity in Heaven with Him.

Happy Easter Everyone!

I hope your enjoy your day with loved ones!
