HE GOES INTO THE TUNNEL BECAUSE HE FEELS LIKE THE STREETS ARENT SAFE FOR HIM ANYMORE. HE HAD GOTTEN JUMPED AND ALMOST SET ON FIRE FIRE BY SOME TEENAGERS. HE ALMOST GOT RAPED AT THE HOMELESS SHELTER. FOR HIM TO SURVIVE ITS DOING EVERYTHING TOO STAY ALIVE.
cause he thinks it is safer then staying in the streets of new york. cause he has been stabed and beat.survive means to b alive for one more day without getting killed.
cause he lost his job and got jumped. no i would try to go get a new job. laugh and enjoy being down there.
1. he goes into the tunnel because he thinks he'll feel safer there. i would make a similar decision. id rather not get jumped and set on fire all the time.2. its means that he hasn't died yet. he's had many close encounters but yet survived...
1.He accepted to go to the underground systems cause he was homeless and needed a home. I wouldnt agree to go into the tunnel because I couldnt stand the living conditions down there.2.To him "survive" meant to live another day and see how the underground sceneries were.
He went into the tunnel to get away from everyone that is mean..Ithink if i had nothing left and my life was a wreck i would do it beacause i would probably have no other choice...He means to not have to die in the streets of above to live one more day even if it is in darkness.
1.he gose into the tunnel beacause the top side is to dangerouse for him beacuse he almost died up there. i would make a similar choice because i wouldn't want to die. 2.to survive for his man is to do what ever it takes to stay alive.
1:because his homeless and needs somewhere to live and thought it would be a better place to live . i dont think i could be able to live down in a tunnel because i wouldnt like the living conditions.2: surviving for him is pretty simple because life to him isnt that hard he has to live life by the secound and just think about how cold or how hot he is
1:i think he goes under the tunnel becasues he has no where to go.2:that he is cold he has no where to go but his tunnel.
he goes into the tunnel because he was beat up cause he is homeless and so he dosent feel like the streets are safe anymore
He accepted living there because he didnt have anywhere else to go. I might live in the tunnels if it was a last resort, but I doubt i'd ever put myself in the situation. survival to him was making it another day in th streets.
He goes to the tunnels seeking security. He believes that the streets of New York is more dangerous so he turns to the tunnels to stay safe. He considers survival as staying alive (food, violence, shelter)
He goes into the tunnels because he feels like it's safer down there than being on the streets because he feels like homeless people are the targets of people who are looking for trouble. I think that being a girl it would be just as dangerous living in the streets as in the tunnels because its not as if the tunnels are the safest place either. According to him it means beyond living.
"he" goes into the tunnels because he kind of has no choice he's homeless and kind of needs a home type setting. I f i were in this type of situation i think i would go crazy. If i only had two choices between living in the tunnels and surviving, or go into the streets and possibly get shot and murdered i believe i would choose the tunnels.
He goes into the tunnel because he feels that it would be way more safe then sleeping in the streets of New York City where he was brutally beat and almost set on fire. I would if that was my last option or i would go get a job some how.... but if there was absolutely no hope for me then i would consider living in a dark scary tunnel with rats and trash and loneliness... To survive for this man means finding shelter and food and a place to be safe....
he goes into the tunnel because he convinced himself that going into the tunnel was at least just as safe as the street. i don't know if i could go into the tunnel as i have never been faced with such a problem. however i think i would probaly go into
the tunnel. if for no other reason then that from the outside the tunnels seem much safer compared to the streets. surviving according to this man is food and a safe place to stay.
1. Describe why "he" goes into the tunnel. Do you think you could make a similar choice? Why or why not? Yes because it's shelter and might be safer than the streets
2. What does it mean to "survive" according to this man? (p. 9) To survive to not be near any danger.
1. no i would go make a home from a worn down basement lot .Better have one way in ,one way out and there's no way for a stranger to find it
2. surviving is the endless sound of the water echoing throw the dark shadow of the wall
1 - Losing a job is hard enough. Then "being stabbed while being robbed by a man he had considered his best friend"; on top of almost being raped by a man, jumped by a bunch of street thugs, and almost set on fire is something one cannot wrap their head around.
He goes into the tunnel due to the things that had happened to him on the street, thinking that things couldn't be any worse. Personally, I wouldn't make the decision on going into the tunnel, because I know i'm capable of living above ground and working a steady job.
2 - "Beyond living, he thinks. Surviving."
