Ha and her family decide to leave Saigon once the President is no longer in power. Their journey has now just begun. Their mother informs them in 'Choice' that "Into each pack: one pair of pants, one pair of shorts, three pairs of underwear, two shirts, sandals, toothbrush and paste, soap, ten palms of rice grains, three clumps of cooked rice, one choice." This means that they must leave everything else, essentially the only life they have ever known behind. For her 'choice' item Ha chooses her doll, what item would you choose? If you had to leave your life behind what would be the hardest things to leave behind? Make sure to explain your choices and give specific details. This thinking will help you better relate to what Ha is going through!
