Alexus | 4 comments in the book Sam want to fight in the war Sams father opinion is that he does not want to hear that in the war his son has died but Sam is trying to tell his father that he is fight freedom but Sam does not want to hear him at the same time Sam father does not think that his son should be fighting because he does not know what can happen and he is scared.Sam brother Tim can tell that his father does not want him to go because he was crying when Sam left the room and that is my paragraph.
