We stayed in hotels for a while, money running low, constantly hearing threats from our deranged manic-depressive father, we had to remain hidden at times, I was wondering if any other father wanted to, or ever threatened to kill the mother of his children. There wasn’t much to do but think about why, “Why my family? When have we ever done any wrong?” I thought, but that was no way to think, we had to quit being depressed, move on, push through it, and be resilient.

Imagine believing so strongly in something and then being let down, or thinking that you were wrong even to believe. In Night by Elie Wiesel, Elie felt as though he had lost his religion and belief in God. We learned how strong his beliefs were when he says,“I believed profoundly. During the day I studied the Talmud, and at night I ran to the synagogue to weep of the destruction of the Temple,” (Wiesel, 14). But then he experiences the hardships of the Holocaust and it abruptly changed him.
How could we let Father go to such a fate? ‘Of course he's not going,’ declared Margot as we waited for Mother in the living room. ‘Mother's gone to Mr. van Daan to ask whether we can move to our hiding place tomorrow” (Frank).

After spending a vast amount of time following Narciso in the blistering cold I became very ill, I had a burning fever and a critical pneumonia. During the time I rested in my bed I learned what had happen after I informed my parents about Narciso’s death, my father discovered the frozen body and demanded the Sherriff to arrest Tenorio but there was no evidence only my witness account.
