This paper was about the yearn for comfort, and safety in our world. I think many people can relate to this paper after what happened on September 11, 2001.
The U.S. was like the pack of wolves; minding their own business and doing what they did everyday. When the first plane struck it was like the first bullet. We had not known exactly what happened. The second plane was when our “fierce green fire” was extinguished from our eyes and we knew we had been invaded. Even though we’ve moved on enough to go on with our lives we will always have our memories of what happened to the Twin Towers just as the mountain and the wolf pack will always remember their relative.
As the mountian changed so does the U.S. The united states entered war, has risen up prices on gas and taxes, and have made airport security a bigger process. The mountian lost families of wolves, deer, and wildlife all together. If only the men who had shot the wolf would have realized what the consequences would be, the mountain would have been able to live on with natural changes. We can only imagine what life would be like now if September 11th 2001 was just a ordinary day. The nation would have not lost as many lives in the buildings that were attacked. Families and communities would not be loosing loved ones everyday in a foreign country.
The moral of all of this is that people should mind there own business and let nature run its course.
