Amelia went to visit her sister only to find that World War 1 soldiers were badly wounded, therefore making this point stronger. Overall, Amelia should have never even thought about becoming a nurse as she wouldn’t have had the opportunities she did as a
She got to become a certified scuba diver, is a pilot and has a black belt in Taekwondo, which is amazing. She makes me grateful for having my arms as she does not have them.
