Because love is universally perceived, everyone can relate to the author. The reader experiences a great deal of empathy and slight distress when Nicole, as well as Teague, goes through the experience and effects of her cancer. “Love wasn’t something I felt anymore,” Teague expresses, “It was something I did,” (281).

Little did she know, that the small action had changed the soldier’s life, as he said in the essay, “That girl undoubtedly has no memory of what happened years ago… It doesn't matter why she gave me the magazine. The important thing is she did” (Goodwin 83).
The narrator knew what love was, and felt it all the time. He learned to respect everything on earth, and care for as long as it lives. “The earth and everything it contained was a gift from See-see-am… and the way to thank the gifts was to respect it.”(George, Pg.445) The narrator wanted to tell how his culture was to respect everything he had, and to always have love because love strengthens everyone. “We must have love because without it we become weak and faint.
