Who is Responsible?

The Death of Romeo & Juliet

Is it Friar Laurence or the Family?

Due to the deaths of Romeo & Juliet, the family should be responsible for the couple's death.

The reason why the family is responsible for the death's of Romeo & Juliet is because of the death of Mercutio and Tybalt. Mercutio, who was a Montague, who was Romeo's cousin, and was killed by Tybalt. Tybalt, who was a Capulet, who was Juliet's cousin, and was killed by Romeo. In the story, it was claimed that, "The unlucky manage to this fatal brawl: There lies the man, slain by young Romeo, That slew thy kinsman, brave Mercutio" (Act: 3 Scene: 1). The reason why this quote is the best explanation is because the feud is building up between the Montagues and the Capulets after Mercutio is killed by Tybalt, then Tybalt killed by Romeo,

The second reason why the family is responsible for the death's of Romeo & Juliet is because of the party that the Capulets were having even though Romeo, Benvolio, and Mercutio weren't invited because of they were Montagues, so they sneaked out, and when Romeo discovered Juliet at the party. In the story, Romeo stated, " Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night" (Act: 1 Scene:5) when he was talking about Juliet. The reason why this quote is the best explanation is because Romeo sneaked into the party and he discovers Juliet and is attracted to Juliet due to her looks and personality.

Aaliyah - I Refuse

Aaliyah - I Refuse

The quote, " No, I don't want to you to take all the blame

Cause I know I had those moments when I caused the pain

This back and forth just like a war with you and me

See we both disagree, have we ever agreed?

This is nothing like i thought it would be

Was it all just a dream?

Was it ever in my reach?" (Aaliyah ,4)

This quote is talking about the stressful relationship that is going on between a man and a woman that causes a lot of changes, involving hatred, between the two lovers.

The reason why I chose this song and this quote is because this song, " I Refuse By: Aaliyah (Aa-Lee-Yah) is related to Romeo and Juliet when the war between the Montagues and the Capulet was increasing causing multiple hatred between the families that ended to Romeo and Juliet's death.

The reason why this novel, Friends 'Til the End, is the best explanation for Romeo and Juliet is because there is a couple named Jasmine Jones and C.J. Taylor who are deeply in love, but tragedy happens when Jasmine's younger brother, Jaquan, is murdered from two bullets in the back from a gang member named Ryan, who is C.J.'s younger brother. Jasmine and C.J. break up but C.J.'s younger brother Ryan tells Jasmine that he did not kill Jaquan. Ryan told Jasmine that he was supposed to kill Jaquan but didn't want to because he didn't want to get incarcerated (arrested) again, instead, a gang member named Antonio, killed Jaquan due to a rejection from joining a gang and was focusing on graduating and become a professional basketball player. After Ryan tells Jasmine, she believes him. Antonio is incarcerated, and Jasmine and C.J. are back together.
