Good morning my name is Clay Gerfen. I'm a 7th generation farmer majoring in agriculture business. My favorite hobbies are diesel mechanics and farming. I go to classes Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The days I'm not in class I can be found working at the family farm. We raise cattle, pigs, sheep, and chickens. Other than livestock we also raise crops, mostly corn, but we do raise soybeans, wheat, and hay.
With reading A Long Way Gone the idea that I feel stood out is civil war. The author talks about his memories of the civil war coming to his town and of being a boy soldier. I feel the writing is best when he is giving us a flash back or backstory on the war or before the war.
