200 Words1 Page
In the essay “The Things with Feathers That Perches in the Soul “, Anthony Doerr asks “What lasts? Is there anything you’ve made in your life that will still be here 150 years from now? Is there anything on your shelves that will be tagged and numbered and kept in a warehouse like this?” (Doerr 97). The idea the author is trying to imply there are things in this world that will fade. Creations you make will get lost but what stops your creations from fading you. You need money and effort to keep your valuable items functioning. Like how Jerry keep fixing the house every year to keep it standing. Then Daughter Of the American Revolution collected $173 to move the house and reroof it. Soon a fundraiser came to raise money to restore the house.
