Hello my name is Dominique Sandusky. I'm a freshman in college, and i'm working on getting my bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. I graduated from north Union High School in Richwood Ohio.I love spending time with my boyfriend of three years, Isaac. A fun fact about my self is that i absolutely love dogs!! I have a Great Dane, Anna Bella who's one and a half.
"One man carries his dead son. He thought the boy was still alive. The father was covered with his son's blood, and as he ran he kept saying, "i will get you to the hospital, my boy, and everything will be fine." (Beah 13) The theme of this is delusion. The father is in denial about the death of his son, but the author explains how this was a good thing since it kept him running away from harm. I thought the writing was at it's best on page 14 when he realizes his old town wasn't safe anymore, and things wouldn't be able to go back to normal. I felt sympathy for Ishmael and his friends having to go through war at such a young age. Especially not knowing if their families were safe.
