Touching Spirit Bear
The character in the story that I am writing about is Cole Mathews. I decided on Cole because in some ways we are alike. Cole grew up in a dysfunctional home. His father was a lot like mine. Cole was whipped when his dad got angry and so was I.
I can identify with how Cole feels because I remember how much it hurt to get whipped. I can recall the bruises I had from dad's belt and how hard I tried to hide it from my friends.
