Some kids on the same truck as me told me that the purpose of this camp was to weaken and kill jews so we couldn 't start a rebellion. This gave me the chills and i knew i wouldn 't make it out. If it weren’t for the other six people in my bed alone i would cry myself to sleep but that would get everyone in trouble. There haven’t been many new arrivals since we’ve gotten here.
The seven logical fallacies; Ad Hominem (Argument to the Person): this is when you attack someone rather than the issue. For example, when you are at home and you have cleaned the whole house, then your husband comes and gets mud all over the floor the floor, instead of asking him to clean it up you get mad and start a fight. Hasty Generalization: this means that you reach a conclusion based on little or no evidence to support your claim, someone could argue it was just a coincidence.

Surviving the Fire It’s Sunday October 26th, 2003, 1:30am in the morning and a neighbor calls complaining of smoke.

I ran outside and yelled at my parents that I called 911. In the meantime my dad was running to get the garden hose to extinguish the fire while my mom ran to the neighbors’ to tell them of the fire.

Mother was perplexed and did not know what to do. The next day had begun and we told my brother of his nightmares. He was surprised but he then said, “The war causes many people to have nightmares.” We went on about our day and greeted people home from the war and that day we had heard horrible war stories. I tried cheering my mother up by telling her that at least America was a leading power now but that didn’t work.
