We Mourn With Those Who Mourn

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.

    I completely agree. My husband is in Afghanistan right now. My heart aches for all of those familes. We take for granted all the time we get to spend with loved ones. I am so proud of our soliders. I can’t imagine living in any other country.
