"Uncle Richie, I used to be mad with you when you wouldn't talk about Vietnam. I thought you were being selfish, in a way. Now I understand how light the words seem. If I ever have kids, I think I won't tell the much about what I did here, or what I've seen. I'll tell them something because I'll want them to know about war. But are there really enough words to make them understand." This passage is from a book called Sunrise Over Fallujah. I chose this because I think it demondtrated the emotion that goes on in the battlefield. I never knew that war could mess with your mind som much until I read this book. This book is a book I would recommend to anyone.
