Friar Laurence is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet

Although Romeo and Juliet killed themselves, Friar Laurence is to blame for their deaths. Friar Lawrence could have prevented this if he would never gotten involved in their relationship. When asked by Rome if he would marry them, he could have simply followed the city's rules and not gone through with it. When Romeo asks Friar to marry them, the Friar knows better, but he finally agrees to it thinking that “For this alliance may so happy prove, To turn your households’ rancour to pure love.” Friar believed that this would end the feud but it only made things worse. Friar laurence gave juliet a potion that would make her fall asleep so she wouldn't have to marry Paris and have Romeo be there when she wakes but Romeo got there too early and thought Juliet was dead so he got a poison and killed himself, Friar laurence came to check on Juliet but found Romeo dead and then Juliet woke up and he didn't want Juliet to see Romeo and tried to get her to leave with him but she wouldn't so Friar Laurence just left her there, then she took a knife to her heart and died right by her love. “Stay not to question, for the watch is coming; Come, go, good Juliet”, Friar Laurence is trying to get Juliet to leave with him because the watch was coming to the vault and he was afraid they would blame him so he left Juliet (5.3). Friar Laurence is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet due to the lack of his common sense.

Clarity by Zedd

I chose the song 'clarity' by Zedd because in the song it talks about their love is a tragedy, "If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?" suggests that being together is trouble but it would also be the cause of their happiness. "A clock ticks till it breaks your glass and I drown in you again," suggests to the part where Juliet sees Romeo for the last time.

Dirty Dancing

I chose Dirty Dancing because, in the movie Johnny (Patrick Swayze) has a "thing" with another girl but then Baby (Jennifer Grey) comes into the picture making Johnny and her closer through dancing and eventually falling in love and also going behind her families back to be with Johnny, "I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw. I'm scared of what I did, of who I am...and most of all I'm scared of walking out if this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life, the way I feel when I'm with you."

What this quote is trying to say is that Baby and Johnny fell in love and she didn't want to leave him or she would lose her whole world.
