    1)Their lives were becoming more restricted and many limitations were implemented. People were no longer allowed to practice their religious customs. Instead of lessons, they had war drills. With such a repetitive life, they would begin to forget the significance of the art and beauty of the world.
    2)The author was scared that if the war continued on for a long time people would not remember what it was like when there was no the war, and that no one would stop and appreciate beauty because they would be too busy trying to stay alive.

    1)Pale pumice still lingered in the air after it raining down for the past 2 years. The rock flour in the air created a fantastic halo around the moon.
    2)Sarah made the decision to stay in their house because, she thinks that if everyone was going to die anyway, it would be dumb to try to move somewhere else and try to survive. Miles, on the other hand, persists in the idea that if they move out of the city, their chances of staying alive would be higher than if they just gave up and stayed exactly where they were.
