Regardless of how you feel about the current activities of the US Military I know that Americans support our troops and recognize the sacrifices they and their families make.
Today one of the middle schoolers I work with at my church got the news no young girl wants- her dad isn’t coming home from Afghanistan. Her mother has lost a husband and she has lost her father. She is a sweet, energetic soon to be seventh grader and my heart has been breaking for her all night.
So I wanted to take a second and ask my readers to do whatever it is you do (say a prayer, have a positive thought, light a candle) and lift up the families who sit waiting. And for those who found out today that someone they love is not coming home we grieve with you.
