“The battery will give them one more day of static. Or one more day of light. But they will not need light to use the rifle.” (Doerr). I found this quotation a little bit more difficult to fully comprehend due to that fact I felt that it could be interpreted in several different ways. I analyzed these lines as stating the radio is obviously dying and the American eleven volt only has so much juice to run receiver. So, once the receiver stops working, they would lose all contact with the world and on any updates on the war. Thus, losing the light, however, the light doesn’t mean that the war has stopped. Tying all of these thoughts, interactions, and lessons together to my journey here at Baylor, I learned quite a lot from Doerr and how I should perceive and interact with the connections, friendships, opportunities, and mistakes… or light… I am shown here at Baylor. I believe it is important to see my own light, but also take into consideration the other ways available to me. I cannot wait to see all the different things that will be brought into my spotlight here at Baylor.
