He couldn’t save everyone, but the ones he did save are very grateful that they got to live to see the sun another day. Babies were burned in fires like they were nothing, families were separated and never got to see each other, the weak were killed while the strong were used for labor.

After a long journey, they finally arrived at another camp, and Elie’s father becomes ill with dysentery.
He wants his son to know that all people involved in the war deserved to be honored and remembered, the ones who died more so than the ones who lived. This quote describes the empathy and the love that the fellow soldiers have for another and shows the traits which John Bradley is trying to show his son and people around him. Another detail that helps shows positivity is looking into the characters personal lives, like what Harlon, one of the veterans, said about his wife, “Picking a girl is like picking a flower from the garden, you only pick the best,”(Bradley 224).
