Ishmael is hiding what he wants instead of war and only knowing violence. He wants to be the way he was before the war and have his friends and family back. He is at this camp where the nurses want to help him get back to normal. He needs to sit down and let out all of the memories of the war and to let out the hate that he has built inside of him. Its going to take time for him to get him back to normal. Ishmael needs someone that has allot of patience.
