Chapter Three: Compassion: This chapter is very heart warming and tragic at the same time. The theme for this chapter is compassion. Father Greg shows so much compassion to all the children who had to grow up tough, he did everything he could for them to succeed. Looney goes to Father Greg and is so excited to tell that he has straight A's, but when Father Greg sees his report card it isn't straight A's. Because of Father Greg's compassion he is proud of Looney for trying his hardest. My favorite thing about this chapter is Betito. It's refreshing to hear about a sweet, silly child after reading about so many deaths and tragedies. You can tell that Father Greg has a special place in his heart for Betito. Reading about Betito's death is very upsetting, it's one of the many deaths in this story, but it stands out the most because he was so young and seemed so invincible.
