Editha reminds me of people who do not get the big picture until they are actually faced with the damage that it caused. Editha wanted people to prove their love to her, whether it was through danger, hurt, or high standards. When Editha was with George, he came to tell her that he would probably have to go back to war, although George was scared and didn’t want to do it, Editha replied to him that she wanted to him go that it was the best thing for him to do for his country. George came back the next day, all happy about going back into the war to fight for his country, when he was turning to leave Editha handed him a box with a letter she had written him the night before. George read the letter while he was out on duty. Few weeks later Editha came across George’s name, telling how he had been killed while serving for the country. George made Editha promise she would go to his mother if something ever should happen to him, and that’s exactly what she did. When she came to his mother, George’s mother was angry with Editha for even saying that it was the best thing for him to go into war. After listening to what she had to say, Editha had a different feeling and realized what she had just done. It completely changed Editha for the better and made her realize what lesson she needed to learn from this. I hope Editha learned her lesson, I thought it was a horrible thing that she would make a boy prove his love to her by putting his life on the line. I don’t feel like that showing true love at all that’s just plain craziness.
