In addition, when Mr. Antolini who was his English teacher teaches Holden the importance of getting academic experience by going to the school, Holden did not pay so much attention to what Mr. Antolini says. But, after he goes back to home, he decides to go a school again. It means that his thought is changed through his process of constructing identity, and probably his idea towards identity is changed, too. There is one more evidence that shows his way of thinking becomes different from before. In the last chapter, he says, "I sort of miss everybody I told about" (214).

The name of the school changed a few times throughout the history of Gallaudet University.

I prayed, as I always do when I remember, to present the Word in a way that allows people to truly heart it a God speaking to their spirits. I only had time to glance at the readings, but they were so good and clear and my heart was so swollen with love and honor and gratitude, that the reading flowed. Paul’s letter struck me in a particularly personal way, as it was his statement of wanting to be with Christ and , therefore, looking forward to death as bringing that.
