Today, I watched my father’s funeral. I realized I left my childhood behind, but Levi still has his. After the funeral, I went home. Ruth and many other people came over to prepare food. She was worried about the British, but I told her it was going to be okay. Then, she asked me if I loved her. I had to think for a while, but I said yes and so did she. I really have become a man… fighting in battles and falling in love. In just two days.
