Message: Think of the positive aspects of the problems you can't solve.
Motifs: Traveling
Irony: situational irony takes place when the man stands up and states how proud they should be of their siblings but then begins to cry loudly. personal response: In our opinion this story was interesting and presented a different way of thinking about the war. Also from looking at the title you would assumption that there would be more action in the story but more emotions took place. Wow! By: Alaya and Precious
