It was a Friday evening, the day before Prims birthday in late May. As soon as school ended, Katniss and Gale hit the woods, because Katniss wanted to get enough to trade a present for Prim. They were disappointed when they headed back because they didnt catch anything. Katniss and gale were resting for a moment by a stream when they saw him. A deer.(pg.269) they caught the deer and walked back to District 12 that Katniss lives in, and traded the deer with Goat man. These few state easily state that katniss made a sacrifice just to get prim a present. The second example is how Katniss went to the feast that had a bag that held something they needed desperately. In there case Peeta needed medicine to heal his leg. No he says. Youre not risking your life for me. Who said I was? I said.(pg.274).
Later they get in an argument and the she says, All right, I am going and you can stop me! this shows a sacrifice for loved ones in the novel. The last example it when katniss volunteers for Prim as tribute. Prim! Strangled cry come out of my throat and my muscles begin to move again. Prim! I dont need to shove through the crowd. The other kids make way immediately me allowing me a strait path to the stage. I reach her just as she is about to mount the steps. With one big sweep of my arms, I push her behind me, I volunteer gasp. I volunteer as tribute.(p.22) This evidence clearly that Katniss made a sacrifice because she loves her sister so much. She had to make the sacrifice because if she didnt she thought Prim was going to die. And second Prim had no skill, but Katniss did because her dad taught her archery.
The idea that noble sacrifices must be made in order for survival of families and friends is a major thing in the Hunger Games. Three examples show this idea with runs throughout the novel. The first example it how Katniss got money for Pims goat. The second example is how Katniss sacrificed herself to save Peetas life. The last example is how Katniss volunteered for Prim as tribute. Collins obviously meant to impress her readers the idea that sacrifices are very life changing which is important in a persons life. If no one makes any type of sacrifice or sacrifices mankind will end!! So, make sacrifices to save family, friends, and others.
