Summary

Never Fall Down-


Direct quote- “Back at the hut, all my sister, they start to cry. "No crying," my aunt says, very strict. "You cry only in your mind." But later, when everyone else asleep, I hear my aunt, her tears, they fall like rain.” (McCormick 35)

Summary- When I get back to the hut from my walk, my sisters start to cry. I can tell that they are really scared and they don't want to go on any longer. My aunt strictly tells them to not cry. She says that they can't cry out loud but they can cry in their head. Even though my aunt said that, weirdly when everyone was sleeping, I heard my aunt crying. Her tears wouldn't stop coming and you could hear them they were falling so fast, it sounded like rain. (McCormick 35)


Direct quote-

“Long time I been on my own, but now really I'm alone. I survive the killing, the starving, all the hate of the Khmer Rouge, but I think maybe now I will die of this, of broken heart.” (McCormick 187)


Summary- For the longest time I have been on my own. I've been living by myself, no friends and no family. I've been on my own but now I really am alone. I have no one with me anymore, no strangers, just me. I have survived everything, the killing, the starving, Khmer Rounge and his hate, but now I don't think I'll die from that. Now I believe I will die from being sad, a broken heart. After everything I've been through I'm sad and I think that's what's going to kill me, my broken heart. (McCormick 187)
