He became bitten by remorse.” (“The Sniper”, pg. 3). This is an excerpt from the story that occurs almost immediately after he shoots and kills his enemy.

The devastation caused by Nevado Del Ruiz was unimaginable and horrific. However, even the rescue relief made available and the government’s lack of support made the aftermath much worse for Armero. A few things that made everything much worse were: Accessing the number of survivors- because of the mudflow many people were spread throughout the town, and many were still under the mud not yet discovered (National Academy of Sciences, 2015).
