A True War Story

From How to Tell a True War Story (Tim O'Brien)

"You can tell a true war story if you just keep on telling it.

"In the end, of course, a true war story is never about war. It's about the special way that dawn spreads out on a river when you know you must cross the river and march into the mountains and do things you are afraid to do. It's about love and memory. It's about sorrow. It's about sisters who never write back and people who never listen."
