The theme of chapter four is about Baptism and how it was a big deal in the community. Father Greg has been baptizing people for years, and in the chapter it shows life by Baptism, but it also shows how people are scared by death. My favorite story was about Jose Lopez, a homie going to be baptized, and when he was asked to say what he wants, he says "I want to be a Baptist" (Boyle 84). I find it funny that he said that, because he had the right idea just the wrong words. The story I found heart breaking to me was the story about the workers cleaning especially David. They talked about how David's father walked out of his life on his birthday, another saying that he saw his dad using needles and drugs, and another saying how he was beaten. Those stories would horrify anyone if they were put in their position.
