There was no room in war for resolutions. Not when the world changed from second to second in a furious dash into oblivion. What mattered was the here and now, not flimsy promises made in the hopes of starting over.
Every day he started over. Every hour, every minute, every second he found himself doing things he’d never thought he could. Reshaped, reborn each time he made a choice of yes or no, live or die, and that was his resolution, when they asked him, needled him into saying something, anything to make them go away.
“I resolve to live.”
