Exploration Four: love
I chose this chapter because it was very interesting how strong love is many years after the war and Jimmy Cross still was in love with Martha. After he knew she did not fee the same way I couldn't understand why it at least didn't start to fade away. I started to believe he would never get over the woman I thought after they met back up in the Reunion that she would Finally feel the same way about him but I was sadly mistaken. Also in this chapter Jimmy still feels extremely responsible about Teds death. I feel responsible for a lot of things myself, my siblings, my job, my school work. In comparison to Lieutenant Cross I have it easy I couldn't handle the pressure of being responsible for the lives of a whole platoon. Responsibilities affect us in different ways for me it affects me in a good way such as keeping my priorities in order so I won't let anyone down. For Jimmy it wasn't so positive it left him with regret because he felt he let Jimmy down because he should have been more focused.
