Subject: I Never Felt by Patrick Camunes

In the short story I Never Felt written by Patrick Camunes, shows the hard things that people need to be able to withstand to be able to do get the job done. Patrick shows readers like myself the things that is felt forced upon the soldiers. In this short story, one soldier did everything that was told of him , before he entered the war he didn’t know how horrific the sights he was going to have to witness were going to be as gruesome as it was. I believe that this short story shows readers this one soldier that entered in to fight for our country did not know the tasks that were expected of him and how the things that he was taught to do as a soldier would cause “anguish to his soul”. This makes me feel sad that this is what the world is coming to. To be in the war now and days people have to be told what to do. The short story I Never Felt by Patrick Camunes makes me feel disappointed that the soldiers are being told who to shoot no matter the situation. The part in the short story where it says “ I never felt.. the taking of a life and the spill of blood would be what was expected of me… but it was my duty to accomplish the “task” “. That part in the short story makes me feel sad that it is the soldiers task to kill people when they are told to do so.
