The Turnaround


"Don't go putting me up on a pedestal. I'm not proud of everything I did."
"Neither am I." Monroe stopped working on Anderson's arm. "Look, Sergeant. You're gonna realize something as you get older. Hopefully it'll come to you quicker than it did to me. Life is long. Who you are now, the things you did, how you're feeling, like your world is never gonna be as good as it was? None of that is going to matter as you move along. It only will if you let it. I'm not the person I was when I was young. Shoot, I had an incident today...Let's just say I had to walk a whole lotta miles to learn how much I've changed. Whatever you did before doesn't matter. What matters now is how you make the turnaround. You'lre gonna be all right."

p.262

This sums up this book perfectly. It's all how you make the turnaround!!
