Journal Two from Alex

My name is Alex Hustak, I was born in Cleveland Ohio, but now I live in Marysville Ohio and I commute from there for class. I am studying Computer Science and Engineering. I enjoy watching baseball and football, my favorite baseball team is the Cleveland Indians and my favorite football team is the Pittsburgh Steelers.
I have three siblings, two older brothers and one older sister.

While reading A Long Way Gone the idea that stood out to me the most was when the author was describing the gore that Ishmael had seen when they were heading to Mattru Jong, He explained the horrifying sight of someone described as "their arms and legs are missing; their intestines spill out through the bullet holes in their stomach; brain matter coming out of their noses and ears" (Beah 18) I feel like this was when the writing was at its strongest point in the chapter. With such a war ahead of them, a question that I would ask is if Ishmael still looks for his family despite the war.


  1. At what age did you move from Cleveland?
