If a recorded history of her brother’s activities were available to Clink, she would be able to not only be able to reconnect with her family and friends, but she would be able to talk with them and ask them for support in her time of need. With this in mind, as Clink speaks about her slow transition into analyzing her brother’s past, she refers to this experience in a repetitive symbolic statement, Clink says “I needed something else. I couldn’t face that void empty handed” (143).
