Terry´s dad stares ¨loses his eyes¨ for the first time in the story. This leads to Terry´s inquiry into Vietnam disease.
Terry researches Vietnam Disease to try to understand what his dad is going through.
Terry's dad has an attack at the store, and Terry is embarrassed for what he did.
Terry's dad tells him about what he experienced in the war.
Terry is going to try to understand his dad and never get embarrassed again.
The Confilct was that Terry wanted to understand and help his dad, but he wasn't be told about it. The theme for me is to always accept everybody and if someone is going through something show them you care.
