journal 8 -by Carli

In this short video there was one thing that really stood out to me. As I watched he kept talking about how he had to kill people. I can only imagine what it was like to have to do that and then be reminded of it everyday. I think It took a lot of strength on his part to not kill himself a couple times after experiencing what he did in war.
I think a way to help veterans when they return is to give them help and consoling and just make sure they know that we are there for them if they need anything.

Holding on
The hobo lifestyle was very different then what I thought. I didn't know that they went and looked for jobs so that they could get food and clothes. I also thought it was interesting that they would clean the dishes after using them so that the next hobos could use them. If I had no home or job or food I would try and go to the closest place hiring for work and then try and start from the bottom and work my way up so that I could get clothes and food for my self and then find shelter or a place to live. I wouldn't want to live on the streets my whole life and be a hobo. I would want to try and make something of myself.


  1. I can't imagine having to carry the load of killing people everyday. We need to be there for these veterans and rensure them that someone does care about them. I agree with providing consoling to the veterans this will help. I also wouldn't want to be a hobo.

  2. I also noticed that in the video he kept cycling back to killing people. I believe that is the root of his problems. I also agree with you on the hobo life style. I found it shocking that they take care of each other like a family.

  3. I agree with I beilieve that what the hobos did to help other hobos that they may not know what pretty amazing.
