Everywhere. That word hung in the air awhile" (Green 214). Written: "Almost everyone is obsessed with leaving a mark upon the world. Bequeathing a legacy. Outlasting death. We all want to be remembered. I do, too. That's what bothers me the most, is being another unremembered casualty in the ancient and inglorious war against disease.

I want to leave a mark

But Van Houten: The marks humans leave are too often scars. You build a hideous mini-mall or start a coup or try to become a rock star and you think 'They'll remember me now,' but (a) they don't remember you, and (b) all you leave behind are more scars. Your coup becomes a dictatorship. Your mini-mall becomes a lesion" (Green 311). Sad- "...here it was the great and terrible ten, slamming me again and again as I lay still and alone in my bed, staring at the ceiling, the waves tossing me against the rocks then pulling me back out to sea so they could launch me again into the jagged face of the cliff, leaving me floating face up on the water, undrowned" (Green 263).
