Journal 2 from Lucas

My name is Lucas Haycook and I went to Elgin High School. I enjoy playing sports, especially golf. I work on a golf course and play a lot of golf so that is an easy way to remember who I am. A fun fact about myself is that when I was about 5 years old, I got in my grandmas car when she was inside and left it running, and I somehow managed to get it stuck on the railroad tracks where there is no road for it.

In the book, one theme that has stuck out to me is violence. I feel that this is important because it is only the beginning and there is already a large amount of deaths and injuries. I think that it is only going to continue to get worse as the book goes on. To me this theme is somewhat relate-able because when I was in 6th grade my brother was stabbed so I understand what some of the people are feeling when things happened to their families, so that is what the theme means to me.


  1. About that railroad track thing... did you or they manage to free the vehicle before it was freed? Also, you enjoy golf, so what's your best golf score? Miniature or course golf?

  3. what all sports have you played

  4. yes, my grandmas friend stopped by and saw what had happened and he used his truck to pull the car off the tracks. My best score is a 74 which was at Districts my senior year. I have also played baseball and basketball.
