Period 8, Post 8: Letting Go

Hello, everybody. I hope you all had a nice week. Certainly, it was a much calmer one, after the craziness of the past two!!

This week, in class, we've discussed how the candlelit vigil in the cornfield on the one-year anniversary of Susie's murder serves as a way to "say goodbye" for both Susie and those she left behind through death. What does it mean, for the mourners to "let go" of Susie? How is Susie "moving on," as well? How does her father's reaction show that he has entered the final stage of grief, acceptance, as well?

Your response will count as a homework assignment for the second marking period.


  1. "let go": for me it means 'acceptance' because let go is that move on , is a form to say come back to reality come back to life again
    now mr salmon is realize that get in troube in order to find mr harvey is unnecessary it will not make susie coma back to life
    now he is realizing that he still have 2 children that need love ...fathers love

    In my opinion "Let Go" it means "acceptance" because letting go is to accept that,that person is not here with us no longer and that we accept that we can think about them but not holding them back
