The theme for A Long Way Gone for Chapter 1 in my opinion is change. Everything was so normal and the boys and their friends thought that learning rap was going to be the next big thing for them to do/learn next. Then all of a sudden their lives changed forever, just like that, in the blink of an eye. Before the start of the war they had a future to look forward to and now that's changed-in fact I think that they are now wondering if they will have a future at all. I feel like this theme is important because it really goes to show you that absolutely anything can happen, anywhere, anytime. This theme means to me that change is basically always inevitable.

Journal Two from Caitlin
My name is Caitlin Williams, welcome to my first blog post in English 1109! A couple things to get know me better are that I love anything including or dealing with fashion or make-up! I'm very open-minded to all styles and looks. I also have a cat that I have had for 5 1/2 years and his name is, Cohen. He is a bengal cat and he is a 5th generation Asian leopard, I will attach a picture of him since he is just so cool looking! I also have a little nephew who just turned one and he is my absolute favorite thing in this entire world, his name is Cayson. A fun fact about me is that I am a Patient Care Associate at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. This position has made me realize my true career calling which is being a Nurse!
