Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Jonas was very devastated, upset, confused, and angry. Jonas doesn't understand how people can be so cruel to a newborn baby and then toss it into a box, into the garbage like it never had a purpose to live. When Jonas witnessed the release it caused him to look at life differently from that point forward. Watching that baby be killed changed the way he viewed everything in life, even his own life.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
