Exploration 5 Dillon Quigley

Sweetheart of the Song Tra Bong was the most meaningful so far. It seems like such an impossible thing to happen, shipping his girlfriend out to him, her then getting caught up in the war. It seems so easy and possible but at the same time it seems like that could never happen. When Mary Anne firsts leaves the compound with the greenies the emotion Rat goes threw i just connect with. I think most people do, who hasn't had someone leave you. The feeling of emptiness he felt the amount of disappointment that he must have felt.Rat deals with emotions the way you think someone would.
A grenade sails out. One guy jumps on to it and takes the blast, but its a killer grenade and everybody dies anyway. Before they die, thought, one of the dead guys says, " The fuck you do that for?" and the jumper says, "Story of my life, man," and the other guy starts to smile but he's dead. That's a true story that never happened.
This little paragraph is true, even if this happened it would never be told as a story. No one would ever tell this story no matter what. It dies with the men there is no happy ending, it is war. some stories will never be heard because like this they will die with the men.

  1. I completely agree with you, everyone would go through those emotions. Abandonment is such a terrible thing and it throws you into some dark places.
