When Katniss made the alliance with Rue, I don’t think she knew that i twas going to be really hard if Rue died, because she reminded Katniss so much of her little sister Prim. When they plan to set the distraction towards the career tributes, and the morning after Katniss cannot find Rue, she gets worried, and that’s when i know that i twas not a good thing because you knew that Rue was going to be killed and it would hurt Katniss. When Katniss hears a scream, she kind of knows that Rue is in danger, she follows the scream and sees Rue trapped in a net and then all of a sudden she has a spear go through her heart.
With Katniss gathering wildflowers and decorating Rue’s body and giving her a proper barial it’s a good thing because it can give some closure between her and how Rue reminds Katniss of her little sister. Katniss also thinks that it shows the Capitol that she is a real person and not just an entertainement piece for the people watching the hunger games.
Katniss knows that the game is on now and that she has to fight for Rue because in her last words Rue told Katniss she has to win the games for her and to sing to her as she dies.
Journal # 3 Alliances
When katniss decides to make an alliance with Rue, she knows that Haymitch might be upset but Katniss knows what she’s doing. In her alliance with Rue, I think it is a good thing because Rue isn’t that much of competetion towards Katniss. There’s bad things about it too, Rue reminds Katniss of Prim, her little sister. That’s a bad thing because she probably will be killed throughout the games and Katniss will see. Or if Katniss has to do it herself so that she could win the hunger games.
I twas a good idea like i said to make an alliance because otherwise Katniss wouldn’t have known stuff like; Peeta isn’t with that group anymore, or that that group has a bunch of food, and how to turn her sunglasses into night vision glasses. Rue is very helpful for Katniss, with the information and the help with her burns. It’s a very good thing that Katniss gave her some food and helped her out to because, otherwise it’s just Rue giving all her help towards Katniss and her not repaying the favor.
When Rue tells her how the career tributes have a big food supply, and that’s when Katniss knows its time to start planning. She has a very good mind for the games, because she knows how to strategize and plan for ahead. I think she has more confidence because it is two of them planning to go hunt for the food supply and not just her because I don’t think Katniss could be able to do it herself, because of all the things shehas been through, throughout the hunger games.

Secondly, dandelions symbolize hope. This is because after she had seen the dandelion she knew that she would have enough food to feed her family. Most people see these as nothing but weeds, but for Katniss it means keeping her family alive.
Lastly, food is a great symbol for wealth. The author puts huge emphasize on how the amount and variety of food in the Seam compared to the Capitol. In the Capitol they can have anything they wish to eat at a push of a button and they eat far more than they need. In the Seam there are many families that die from starvation and are lucky to be full after a meal. Also they have to work very hard for there food.
