I finally finished they Things They Carry by Tim O'Brien.
Heavy stuff but very light hearted just the same.
I like how he explains death.
Writing brings those dead, back to life.
You give them life everytime you retell their story.
You allow them to wake from where they have rested.
He explains it like a book on a shelf that hasn't been checked out in a while.
Hoping one day to be opened again.
