From a Narrative of Mary Rowlandson
When I first read the narrative of Mary Rowlandson, it just hooked my eyes and i kept reading without stopping till the last page. I was quite surprised how brave and how strong she was. She could not even mourn from the deaths of her child and relatives. Seeing her children was not allowed to her either. She eventually became a servant of Quinnapin, who was a Sagamore, and married King Philip’s wife’s sister. Wuinnapin was a subordinate chief among the Algonquin Indians and Rowlandson moved around as her master was leading. In this kind of hard situation, Rowlandson, however kept her hope for the future believing in her God. This narrative was great to show the strength of Mary Rowlandson under the strong belief in God. I was so moved when I read the Christians in Boston were trying to help her and her children to be freed from the Indians. They were sharing their properties to get them back. From the previous reading, I was kinda disappointed with Christians who claimed the land to be their colonies and tried to get the Indians as their servants, but in this reading, I was very moved that they were trying to help each other from the difficulties. It was a great writing.
