MY RESPONSE (connection, appreciation, question, interpretation)

p. 213 "If you want to know the truth, I don't know what to think about it. I'm sorry I told so many people about it. About all I know is, I sot of miss everybody I told about. Even old Stradlater and Ackleey,, for instance. I even miss that..old Maurice. It's funny. Don't ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you'll start missing everybody,. "

Holden spent so much energy hatting everybody and

everything,, but now it seems like he 's figured out that all

the people he hated so much are the people who actually

helped mold him. Every person who crossed his path

touched him in some way and, even though he didn 't

want to admit it, now it seems he is beginning to

appreciate them. I realize for myself that even the people

who have hurt my feelings or challenged my way of

thinking have helped me grow. In some twisted way

they each play their own parts in my life.
