Several nerves. I can see kids counting backward on their fingers, trying to figure when their grandparents or great-
grandparents were born, when they came to America, if they would have made the Neck Cut. When they figure out
they would have been stuck in a country that hated them, or a place with no schools, or a place with no future, their
hands shoot up.
