Walt is so hurt by Chrism’s actions he does not see the goodness in his actions. As Walt says in a quote on page 203, ‘ Many people have told me that they admire Chris for what he was trying to do. If he lived, I would agree with them. But he didn’t and there’s no way to bring him back. You can’t fix it. Most things you can fix, but not that. I don’t know that you ever get over this type of loss. The fact that Chris is gone is a sharp hurt I feel every single day. It’s really hard. Some days are better than others but it’s going to be hard everyday for the rest of my life. He is saying that it is going to be hard for Walt to live life however he will try to.

How is it,’ he wonders aloud as he gazes blankly across Chesapeake Bay, that a kid with so much compassion could cause his parents so much pain? ” Walt is really showing that he and Billie are truly hurt by Chrism’s actions. They are saying that he cause too much pain how can he be not guilty.
