The dates are real, but the events are not... well, except when fictional characters participate in real historical events. Then the events ARE real, you know, kinda sorta, but not really, not anymore, because now they're different.

Buried in the rain. Murdered. Is that what happens to us? No time for friends? Only our enemies leave roses. Violent lives ending violently. Blake understood. Humans are savage in nature. No matter how much you try to dress it up, to disguise it. Blake saw society's true face. Chose to be a parody of it. A joke. I heard joke once..."

Date of entry in Albert's journal, from when he was 9 years old: "I came home from school. Mom was in the kitchen with a strange lady. Mom told me to go back to my room. I thought I was in trouble. She closed my door and said, 'Purree got hit by a car and killed.' And then she took me back to the lady in the kitchen and told me to spell words to show how I'm a good speller. I said I had to go to the bathroom. I climbed out the window. I went down the block. I saw Barney playing punch ball. He said I looked sad. I told him what happened to my cat. He said, 'That's sad.' Then I cried, but I tried not to show. One of the kids laughed. Barney said he cried when his dog died. And the kids stopped laughing." Catarina makes his mother read it out loud.
