This Weeks Question:
In light of 11.11.11 and Veteran's Day tell us about your favorite solider and how he or she is saving the world. Fictional or real life.
I would normally just pick out one of my favorite book characters that fit the question and let that be it. but, I can’t do that with this one. A little over a year ago I was shopping with a friend when she got a call about her husband who was serving over sees at the time. The call she received was to tell her that her husband had been injured. That was all the info she was given. She had to go about her life without any more word until later that night, many hours after the original call. My friend found out that her husband was going to be Ok.
This experience opened my eyes to what the family's of the solders are going through while they are gone fighting for us all. So I guess that’s my answer: The people that are at home praying day and night for the safe return of their solider. The wife's, husbands, mothers, fathers, family, and friends that are left not knowing if their loved one is coming home or not. They are in the service to and to often forgotten.
Happy Friday Everyone,
