It broke my heart because I couldn’t believe the city I was born in and had memories was just washed away. At this point, I knew there was no returning home for my family and me.

An example of when Lennie and George had to leave a job because of Lennie’s actions was when they were in Weed and Lennie touched the girl’s dress and would not let go. The only reason why Lennie did that was because he saw something he liked and he did not want to let go and he became scared when she started to scream. People during this time period were unaware of mental disabilities which made it hard for them to get jobs.

On Tuesday, Hurricane Matthew hit the southwestern coast of Haiti. The hurricane brought lots of damage and no one on the island is sure if it is over yet.

He said that the pacific theater was “just God damned hot stinking corners of small islands in a group of in a group of islands in a part of the ocean we all hope never to see again” (100). One night, Jack became a hero. Since the PT boats that didn’t fire torpedoes also didn’t have radar, it was difficult for them to find each other.

These men were unsure if their SOS had gotten through but they were sure that someone would notice the lack of the USS Indianapolis in port. The men knew that at least someone would get suspicious of the large ships tardiness, but there was a lack of urgency and investigation early enough to save more than 317 people.
