I interviewed Harold Baumgarten, a soldier of the 116th infantry of the 29th division, who served during the battle of D-Day. I found Harold’s story to be very interesting in many ways. Hearing him recount his experiences on Omaha beach has caused me to want to learn more about the battle in which the Allies invaded France. Personally, I think Harold should be considered an American hero for his bravery and determination. Harold was drafted on June 26, 1943 at the age of 18.

(Hesse 27)” This is the pivotal moment for Siddhartha, from this moment forward, he knows to follow his own path in order to achieve Nirvana. Siddhartha discovers his inner peace when he goes through diverse experiences, and gains wisdom.
Ashen Alleys to the South A country in desolation, few humans remain, and nature in complete shambles. Under the cover of ash clouds, setting retains the tone of “The Road.” It not only sets the backdrop of the novel, but continually affects the father and son. Their surroundings cause physical, psychological, and even spiritual issues.
