By
     The Mountain” by Benjamin K. wasvery moving. Even though it was fiction, it made me think how desperatepeople can get, not necessarily financially, but mentally andemotionally.

As I was reading it, I thought about my cousin,Elisa, who died by her own hand. When I read how desperate the maincharacter was, I immediately assumed he would commit suicide. Suicidenot only ruins your life, but the lives of those who hold you dear intheir hearts.

When I read the sentences, “He could not livelike this anymore,” and “He pulled the gun out” Ithought, Please don’t kill yourself. My dread made the endingbittersweet since I was sad that he was shot, even though I was happy hedid not kill himself.

I praise Benjamin K. for this piece ofphenomenal fiction.
