With a single arrow, Katniss kills the boy from District 1, who speared Rue, and takes Rue's hand.  Rue makes Katniss promise that she'll win for both of them, and then asks Katniss to sing her a  song. Katniss sings a lullaby from her district, and when she's finished, the mockingjays pick up her  song. Rue dies and Katniss realizes just how much she hates the Capitol for doing this to Rue, for  doing this to all of the tributes. She wants revenge on the Capitol and wonders if there's a way for her  to do it. She recalls Peeta's words about showing the Capitol that he's not simply a piece in their  Games. Katniss wreaths Rue's face with flowers and presses the three middle fingers of her left hand against  her lips, saying goodbye to Rue. She decides that she will make the Careers pay for Rue's death and  gathers her supplies to move on through the woods.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
