9: The Diary Entry of a Crusader | Feb. 14- This is now the 234th day of the first crusade. There is frost on the ground today. It must have been a cold night. A muslim wounded my arm in battle yesterday and took my horse. I may not be able to afford a new one. I'm scared I might have to go home and miss out on the oppurtunitiy of having a good afterlife. We are winning but i dont know how much more of this I can take. All I wish is for this war to end.
