Week 6 Ligocki
"Finding similarities in veterans"
Grace had us read two New York Times news articles to reflect on as we wrote our journals this week. After getting over the fact that this was yet another task she is having us do on top of all of the other stuff, I read the articles, and I sincerely enjoyed them.
Brandon Friedman reminded me the most of Myles. Particularly because he’s a talker. I could just tell by his writing style. He said in his article that he couldn’t shut up about her experiences overseas. Myles is the same way. At least with the stories that didn’t have as much emotional impact.
Reading these stories about these two veterans helped me understand the bigger picture of this project. Myles hasn’t been as fortunate to publish his stories like Jason and Brandon. I feel very honored to be able to do that for him.
