Rue had a talent for singing; her greatest joy was music. Katniss demonstrated her love for Rue by crying and mourning her death and covering her body in flowers at the time of her death to show that she was 'more than just a piece in their games'. District 11 then sends Katniss a loaf of bread as a gift of appreciation. Her greatest joy in life was music, and she loved singing with the mockingjays at home. This is how Prim, Katniss' sister, also stood, which brings back memories of Rue whenever Katniss sees her own sister. Danz Emergency Service Squad No. Rue says that what she enjoys most in life is music, something which greatly confuses Katniss when she considers the hardship Rue has endured on the fields in District 11.
We were in the museum for 7 hours and needed to rush through the end of it, so plan to spend a lot of time. We spent 2 hours inside and I feel like we barely scratched the surface. Memorabilia of watches, handkerchiefs, papers with writing and even a small Statue of Liberty with all the badges of those brave firefighters and police who risked their own lives for the sake of others knowing it would be their last. She also made herself a slingshot, which seemed to be of good quality, and a knife that she made from a sharp shard of rock. Once you get there the actual exhibits start, and you hear audio from the radio stations in New York from that day. Unknown ~ District 5 ~.
The Games In the arena, Rue managed to stay alive by staying off the ground, much like Katniss did. If any worker stole crops, they were publicly whipped, a common occurrence that the Mayor was described as strict on. The Capitol is rumored to have possession of nuclear weapons and are known to have a huge Peacekeeper force as well as hovercraft and advanced war technology. Rue placed 7th out of the 24 tributes. I mean it is just crazy how much effort they put into this and how well it comes out. It's located a little further away on Greenwich Street.
She then saluted District 11, where a riot ensued. Noah is the boy tribute in the 74th Hunger Games. We were going to purchase ours at the ticket window but saw there was an hour long line. She is described as 4' 8. The names of those who passed are on panels all around the structure. Katniss devises a plan with Rue; Rue must act as a decoy and light up three fires to distract the careers away from the camp site, while she destroys the food somehow.
Katniss held Rue's hand as a lifeline as if it were she who were dying and Rue holding her. Family Rue was the eldest of six children. Rue told Katniss about the night vision glasses that Katniss had gotten, which Katniss mistook for sunglasses at first, and how important the glasses were in Rue's district. District 11 has very strict laws and Rue could be punished for helping her family in this way. In , when Katniss and Peeta are on their victory tour, she thanks Rue for everything she has done for her. She left a mark on Katniss's forehead from her knife. In my opinion, it was rather small and I really was hoping to see more artifacts displayed very few items.
I'm glad I went, I won't probably go back because it was really hard. And it's definitely more than the typical tourist stop in New York. Like Katniss, Rue was able to find edible and medicinal plants in the arena. There are many tracker jacker nests in District 11, causing workers to keep medical leaves on hand. Small, quick, intelligent, and young, the two had many similarities, which led Katniss to make Rue her ally.
Katniss then thanks District 11 for their tributes, Rue and Thresh. Katniss and Rue talk about their life in their district. The museum has lots of exhibits that walk you through the tragic story of September 11, the lives lost and the days that followed. He was known for being an older voluenteer and threatening to kill the District 6 male tribute, Jason. It was an honor to walk through this museum and to walk near the pools. The attention to detail, the presentations, the design, it is just powerful. Katniss also felt pity and empathy for Rue, being forced into the arena at such a young age.
Rue asked if she blew up the food and Katniss confirmed that she destroyed everything. During the finale of the Games,Cato is pushed off the Cornucopia to the wolf muttations-fearsome creatures created in the Capitol-who prolong his death to the point that, when Katniss finally shoots him, he is nothing more than a gnawed and bloody hunk of meat. The man was shot shortly after. Rue pleaded for Katniss to win and Katniss promised she'd win for the both of them. She was also able to whistle a four note song which had meaning in her district that the day of work was over.
