One of own, Granny Sue wrote this poem about a son she just sent to this mindless mess in the Middle East. Her next post, after this poem, tells of her observations of our proud military families as well, as they bade these soldiers farewell.
I commented to her the other day on a site we both visit about never having been a mother in that situation, but I have been the son. I can only imagine this is just short of burying a youngun', to watch them go intentionally into harms way.
Try to find a few minutes and drop by and give her your support. Thanks.
