Father James: It's hard to explain what it's like coming home from war. Fear. Elation. Guilt. Imagine being trapped in a dark room and there is no way out. And every fear, every nightmare you ever had, is in that room with you. And there's no escape. From any of it. And then one day a door opens and you're free to go. Just like that. The thing is, you made your peace with your terror and your fear of death. And now part of you is afraid to leave it behind. But what choice do you have? Every soldier has to walk through that door, one way or another.
