We will be leaving on ship to America before the war escalates here in Curacao.
After the war that Philip's mom thinks is approaching Curaçao she decides that she is going to move back to the U.S with Philip by ship. Unfortunately Philip's dad can't go because of his job.
When getting on the ship Philips dad is worrying that maybe a torpedo may hit the ship. Then it hit them, a torpedo hit the ship. Then all of a sudden a piece of wood hit Philip's head and he went unconscious.
When he went he woke up he saw an old man and a cat. Philip immediately thought he was a bad man because he was dark skinned. He also thought that he was a stubborn old man. One day Philip woke up not being able to see anything. Timothy helped him do things because of his disadvantage and Philip started "Seeing through his eyes."
Timothy and Philip found an island to stay on. Philip no longer saw Timothy as a stubborn old man. But now they were stuck on the island for months.
A hurricane came to the island they were on. They tried to be safe but unfortunately Timothy died and Philip was alone with a cat.
Philip was later found and was back with his mom. He was no longer racist and saw everybody as equal just like Timothy did.
