  1. 1. My Brother Sam Is Dead - Journals <ul><li>Daniel Jang </li></ul><ul><li>English 8E </li></ul>
  2. 2. Journal 1 <ul><li>The story introduces these characters at the start, Tim and, Sam. Obviously, this would mean that they are the two most important characters. Tim is the main character, and the narrator as well of the book. But nevertheless, Sam is well described in all chapters as well. Most importantly, the chapter one is about Sam. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Journal 2 <ul><li>As the story goes on, Tim comes to a place of thinking. It was up to him to decide whether he should go up against Sam or not. Not understanding much of the both sides, Tim sees Sam and his girlfriend Betsy Read. It was then, when betsy asked Tim which side he is on. Sam goes on with his reasonings, “You should die for your principles.” Betsy, who is obviously on Sam’s side, tries to bring Tim to their side. In the end, Betsy asks Tim if he wants Sam to get killed. Sam tells Tim not to answer that question. The chapter 2 soon ends. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Journal 3 <ul><li>Chapter 3 is basically about Tim, thinking about what effects the war would bring to their little village. With Sam gone to the war, all Betsy and Sam could do was wait. One November day, Betsy comes to Tim, with a letter and nods. Betsy had come, and soon it was the beginning of the chapter 4. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Journal 4 <ul><li>With the small brain Sam has, he thinks of a way to meet his brother once again to get the gun. A while after Sam left, Soldiers accuse Tim’s father for rebellion. Father tells the soldiers that Sam took it but they threaten the father by saying that they would kill him if he does not give the gun. Tim slowly goes into the forest to seek for Sam and the gun he took. For Sam was sleeping, Tim was able to slowly take the gun out of his clutched arms. As soon as Sam wakes up, he dashes to Tim to get the gun back. Tim also threatens Sam by saying that he’d shoot if Sam tries to stop him. But soon, Tim starts to cry. Sam hears the reason why Tim tried to take the gun. Sam hesitates but decides to go back home for a while. </li></ul>
