so i just finished a book i thought i would never read, "the road" by cormac mccarthy, it isn't my type of book, but once i started reading it i couldn't put it down. it was good, maybe i didn't get it. its about a father and son traveling across the country post-apocalypse. i guess i just didn't have closure on the book: it never said how the apocalypse happened, or maybe it did i just didn't get it. and the end was strange, but maybe i just didn't get that either. the one thing i did get, which isn't like a new revelation, was the love this father had for his son. you truly don't understand love for a child until you have one! this father did everything in his power to protect his son and i guess it is so hard to put it into words the unfathomable love a parent has for a child. like i said this isn't a new revelation, it is just something that opened my eyes a little more, now i understand how much my parents love me and want to protect me. i'm their madeline. my dad is my nana's madeline. thanks mom and dad!
