This story is one of my favorites that we’ve read this semester. I enjoyed Rash weaving two different places into a story so well. It felt very natural and real when Rash would switch back and forth from the past to present. The story evoked a lot of emotion in just a few short pages.

My favorite part of this story is the second paragraph on page 131. He is home, looking into the graveyard, but then he thinks of the Philippines thinking it could be him dead. The details Rash uses helps me envision the graveyard. From the snow and trees to the barbed-wire fence post it seems very real to me. It felt very natural that he would think back to the war. I felt a lot of emotion when reading this passage.
