NOOO! First Marial and now uncle. Who will protect and take care of me now? What if the tribe leaves me again? What will I do? What will happen?
YES! YAY! YA!
I will get us all to Kenya safely. No matter what it takes.
In pages 15-16, Salva awakens to find himself alone in the barn that his whole tribe stayed in for the night. He shows sadness by thinking, "Why did they leave me here all by myself. I am just a kid and I need protection." He also shows curiosity of why did anybody not wake him up for what this has lead to. Was it because he was a just a kid and he would slow them down?
In the pages 63-65, Salva goes through an eye-witness of two with a gun, aiming at uncle, and pulling the trigger. The two men run, while uncle falls to the ground quick and Salve starts to cry. He shows sadness by first loosing his friend Marial, and now uncle, the one person that protected him. He shows thoughtfulness by thinking of them both 2 weeks after it happened. But thinking of them, powered Salva to do whatever he needed to be safe and not give up.
In pages 80-82, Salve shows leadership by leading the lost boys to the refugee camp in Kenya. They walked for a year and a half. He was caring by never leaving anyone behind and assist them if and when they need help. He gave them jobs like get food, firewood, and older boys to stand guard while others are sleeping. He became a leader by saving those boys lives.
