Journal two from Carrie

My name is Carrie Crilow, I would describe my self as a very outgoing person and I'm the oldest of three sisters. Im very passionate about animals my friends and family. Ive been working at a Dog kennel/rescue for almost three years now and I also work and ride for Buckeye performance horses. I show Reining/cow horses and love meeting new people along the way, nobody is a stranger too me. While attending OSU I plan on taking my love for animals to the next level.

In the first few chapters of A Long Way Gone I noticed that terror and devastation was a major theme. The way the author writes allows me to picture everything I'm reading in my mind very clear and vivid. While the rebels are attacking Ishmaels village and requiring him and his brother along with others to run away from there home. Knowing that someone younger then I having to live through starvation, poverty, and witnessing the loss of loved ones making them fight for everything just to protect their own lives. It makes me wonder if they will ever get a fresh start or ever escape from the rebels? 


  1. I was thinking the same thing about Ishmael going through everything he did at such a young age. I cant imagine what it would be like, let alone being a child going through this.

  2. I also was wondering the same question and felt that knowing someone our age has to go through such a sad experience.

  3. It's so cool that you work at a dog rescue shelter. I also love animals.
