My name is Dylan and i'm writing to you because I know for a fact that you have been through a lot of fighting a war which was only suppose to take an hour, but ended up taking a whole night. Well, I am going through a war in my English class trying to stay caught up with assignments. This is one way we can relate our situation even though your situation was a lot more brutal and life risking. Another thing we have in common is that we struggle to finish but we both get right back up to achieve our goals.

Battle of Mogadishu

Here is Matt Eversman, a soldier so far away from home.

He has the feeling fear.

Tears and sweat falling from his face.

He must feel some sorrow,

Has taken my sight

Taken my speech

Taken my hearing
Taken my arms
Taken my legs
Taken my soul
Left me with life in hell.

Line from the book

" awful slap of bullets into flesh and heard the screams and saw the insides of men's bodies spill out and watched the gray blank parlor rise in the faces of their friends, and the best of the men fought back despair. They were America's elite fighters and the were going to die here, outnumbered by this determined rabble. Their future was setting with this sun on this day and in this place.”
