how would reading stories like this one might change the reader

I think this story can make the reader more aware of their actions and their anger. Like Cole, all of us have justified our actions by blaming others. It takes courage to own up to our own responsibilities and realize that we have control over how we react to negative situations we find ourselves in. The story also reminds us how important it is to spend time in nature and unplug from the things that, like cell phones, clutter our minds.
