People always say its the little things that we take for granted Whether it be being able to talk with someone or hold someone or even just being able to tell what time of day it is In Dalton Trumbos novel Johnny Got His Gun one really begins to understands what it would be like to have very simple things taken away from them Joe Bonhame finds himself tragically injured from the war Over time he slowly begins to realize all of the things that he has lost The first thing that he loses is his hearing He was awake even though he couldnt hear a thing except a telephone that wasnt ringing He was mighty scaredp9 At first Joe doesnt realize that he has lost his hearing and he is under the impression that there is actually a phone ringing somewhere but its really only in his mind But once he realizes that he actually cant hear anything at all he goes into a state of shock almost The shock caused his heart to smash against his ribs He grew prickly all over His heart was pounding away in his chest but he couldnt hear the pulsing in his earp10 He then begins to think about all the things that he will never again get to experience At first he thinks about all the bad things that he wont have to ever have to deal with hearing again He never wanted to hear the biting little castanent sound of a machine gun or the high whistle of a 75 coming down fast or the slow thunder as it hit or the whine of an airplane overheadp10-11 But as he stops and really starts to think about what this all means he then realizes all the little things that he has taken for granted the things that he wants to hear again His mother was singing the kitchen He could hear her singing there
