There is no one left to help me. They think I am weak and useless. They are wrong, and I will prove it.
They are shooting at us. I had no choice but to jump in.
This shows when Salva woke up one morning and everyone in his group had left him. As he cried, he realised they left him because he was a child that might slow them down. Salva was very hurt and he was very dependent on them.
This shows when after Uncle died the rest of the group treated Salva very poorly, because Uncle wasn't there to protect him. They didn't share food nor company. He had to beg for scraps which were given grudgingly. The way they treated him made him feel stronger and more independant.
This shows when the soldiers made the people from the Itang Refugee Camp cross the Gilo River.While Salva was crossing the river they started shooting at them so he jumped in and started swimming. When Salva and the rest of the Lost Boys got across there were 1500 boys. Salve decided to lead them to Kenya and he kept everything organized and gave everyone a job.
