Though these items will take up the room of more useful packages, Jeremiah allows Swede’s treasures on board. This can be for no reason except that Jeremiah’s love for his daughter and her happiness surpasses his need for spare room in the trailer. This is a minor sacrifice, but it paves the way for larger sacrifices to be made further on. The final sacrifice Jeremiah makes for his children comes at the end of the story and, coincidently, the end of his life.

Growing up, many people begin to let go of things, just like what Doodle does, “Within a few months Doodle learned to walk well and his go-cart [finds way into] the barn loft beside his little mahogany coffin” (lines 5-6). The author portrays how Doodle begins to overcome his limitations, which his family doubted, thinking of the obstacles as insuperable. By putting the wagon and coffin out of sight, the author symbolizes how Brother’s dedication towards fixing Doodle and accomplishing the impossible feat of him walking limits him from truly seeing all that Doodle achieves. Later on in his reflection, Brother recalls his encounter with the scarlet ibis, just moments before Doodle’s death, “The bird [...] lay on the earth like a broken vase of red flowers, and [Brother’s family] stood around it, awed by [the bird’s] exotic beauty” (lines 303-305). The author gives a warning of Doodle’s death, signifying that if Brother saw Doodle’s beauty beforehand, then his guilt had a chance at prevention.
