  7. 7. In Closing…<br />I was inspired to make this short presentation as my response to this week’s blog post because I was inspired by this author. This post is just so my classmates can learn more about O’Brien and his early life before and after Vietnam. I hope you enjoyed the included photos and video clips. I know that “The Things They Carried” was inspiring to me and such a great work of art. <br />
