“God always offers forgiveness,” I said, softening my tone, “to those who are truly sorry. But sorry isn’t a feeling, you understand. It’s an action. A determination to make things right.”
Phil Klay, Redeployment

“[Prayer] will not protect you. It will help your soul. It's for while you're alive.”
Phil Klay, Redeployment

“She spent all his combat pay before he got back, and she was five months pregnant, which, for a Marine coming back from a seven-month deployment, is not pregnant enough.”
Phil Klay, Redeployment
