Response to: Woman at the Wall

I think that the basic story is that this woman lost her son in the war. To me it seems like she is a mother and not a spouse because it says, "she kisses the name on its forehead, that way mothers do." I feel like the woman is sad and misses the one she lost because she wishes that she could wake up in the morning and find him in the bed. She is praying to god to basically bring this person back, she must have very deep feelings for who ever she might be talking about.

I think the writer did a very good job of personifying the engraving in the wall to make the reader think that the person was actually there. The name on the wall symbolized a human being.
