The Man I Killed
"The Man I Killed" was a really important chapter and emotional one as well in my opinion. The feeling of killing someone is something that i can't even imagine no matter how well O'Brien explains it. It's a burden that one has to carry for the rest of his life. Killing someone for something that they had nothing to do with is pretty hard to deal with. O'Brien imagines what kind of life the young boy had-he wonders if he was maybe a scholar, or maybe hated politics and was teased through out his life for being soft. I like the insight of what war was like and how a person killed by a grenade looked like.
