Before they arrived, they stopped at the mountain to rest. Ishmael, though selfish, was very determined to see his family. He said, “I became angry that we had to rest, and I sat on a big rock away from the group” (Beah, 93). Unfortunately, he was unable to see his family due to rebels attacking. His mental state was heavily damaged at that point.
Jake seemed to also push the buttons of the guards, one instance when he said that he had been waiting to splash water in the guards face for a while. Then after being given another thirty days on the starvation diet, when they gave him the paper to sign about it he wadded it into a ball and threw it at the officers’ chest, giving him yet another thirty days (In the belly of the beast). It seems that he is very reckless in the way that he goes about serving his time. He also mentioned that being yelled at or being spat at in the face once or twice is fine, but doing that everyday for thousands of days, no one can say that it is nothing and forget about it. He said the same about his stuff, that they can take something and he will learn to live without it, but take something everyday until they are reaching for his eyes, heart, soul, etc., is something that he can not deal with (In the belly of the beast).
Like snowflakes, no two creation myths are identical, “The Story of the Creation”, which highlights on the creation of the Akimel O’odham, more commonly known as the Pima, and Megan Wren’s “Mayan Creation Myth” are no exception; however, there are many similarities. The “Mayan Creation Myth” and “The Story of Creation” both follow the basic path that most creation myths do starting with the emptiness in the beginning, a void to be filled by a God-like figure, who would soon create vegetation, animals, and humans who he would then destroy and start anew. With every creation myth, there is a void, or an emptiness before a greater power takes it into his hands to change that, and this is true for both the Mayan, and the Pima creation myth.

Once, quite a long time ago, before the moon glistened in the night sky and the birds sang in the Palo Verde tree, there lived the first tribe of humans.

He would breathe life into them, giving them a soul and instilling a true sense of purpose. In this tribe, a father and his 14 year old daughter lived, her mother having passed during childbirth. They lived in a small hut, with nothing but the skins of animals for clothing.
