And everyone takes a part of war with them physically and mentally and I think SC captured that perfectly with Katniss' and Peetas' PTSD.
Totally agreed - what is PTSD? Wouldn't you love to sit down and talk to her now? Find out what went through her mind as she was writing it. I bet she is a very intersting person to have a converstation with. I did for get about an older guy I know who is reading the books - we have talked about them but he was in one of my history classes - don't see him that much any more. So there are a few guys like us out there that branch out beyond sterotypes.
