Caring is when someone who appreciates something. When someone is caring, they defend someone or give people food. People who are caring are people at food drives or soldiers who care about their country. Soda in the book The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton is caring about Ponyboy.

Soda cares about Ponyboy when he said “leave my kid brother alone, you hear,” (pg. 50). Soda is caring when he’s defending Ponyboy from Darry. Ponyboy is being beat up by the Soc’s and the gang is chasing the Soc’s away and Darry is yelling at Ponyboy then Soda says, “Leave my kid brother alone, you hear.” Then Darry stops yelling at Ponyboy.

Another time Soda cares about Ponyboy is when he goes to the hospital Ponyboy, The dialog says “I leaped up and ran to the door… Soda had me in a bear hug…” (pg. 97). Ponyboy is in the hospital and Soda was opening the door and he’s hugging Ponyboy. Ponyboy is saving some kids in a fire and he goes to the hospital when he hears the nurse tell him his brothers are coming. The dialog said “I leaped up and ran to the door… Soda had me in a bear hug…” Soda had missed Ponyboy incredibly after not seeing him for a week.

Finally, an example of Soda caring about Ponyboy is when Soda says, “Darry…”“Sodapop began, but Darry turned on him,” (pg.50). Ponyboy is home late and Darry is mad at Ponyboy and Soda is defending him. Ponyboy is at the movies and he goes to sleep there, but he wakes up in the night. He goes back home and Darry is furious at him for coming home late, but Soda is trying to  defend Ponyboy  by saying “Darry…”’Sodapop began, but Darry turned on him,’ (pg.50). Then Darry hit Ponyboy and Ponyboy runs away.

In conclusion, Soda throughout The Outsiders is caring about Ponyboy. Soda shows this trait many times because Ponyboy is his little brother, and his older brother Darry, is always yelling at Ponyboy, so he defends his little brother from Darry. If he never cared about Ponyboy he would never defend him, and Ponyboy would end up like Johnny: unloved. That would have a huge impression on the story line, and Ponyboy wouldn’t be in the gang because Soda would never bring Ponyboy along with him. I show this trait many times because I care about my family. I care about my family when I am playing music with them. This trait really has a big impact in my life. I care about incredible amount of things like my friends and family.
