During the son’s pivotal moment where he starts to enjoy his time he see’s his father in a different light than what he used to the son realizes how much fun he has had with his father during the trip and on all the past trips they have been on. The changing relationship between the father and son is demonstrated, when the son thinks back to what happened on the car ride back. “What I did not know was that my father would wheedle and and plead his way past them…”. This quote shows the respect the son is gaining for his father and his ability to get him back home earlier than predicted. The mother is
Beneath the surface, I think the father was tired of always being on the hunt to survive. I think that he was tired of having to worry about how they were going to survive, with both having enough to stay some what healthy and also being cautious of the “bad guys.” This was very unlike the man to forget about having to be safe from other people. Everything that the father does, he thinks about how it will affect his son. But during this passage, he didn’t really take into consideration the things that could have been down in that room and how it would have affected his son.

His indignation and this love forces him to begin blaming himself for the loss of his son as he calls it his 'sin for having too much hope of thee'. It could be argued that Jonson is communicate that despite the circumstances, a person's identity is never truly lost.

Anytime you needed something, he was your man. He never once asked for a mere thank you. He worked hard, from truck driver to marines he could do it all and with my mom by his side, they were a power duo. As I slowly grew, I really didn’t think much about not having a dad since the only life I knew was with my mom. I would usually keep quiet on Father's Day where if I tried to talk about my dad, the conversation would always end with, “Awe, I’m sorry” or “Well you were little and didn’t know him, so it’s fine.” (Side note, if someone is coming out to you and telling you their problems, don’t degrade and minimize their issue.
