Bringing the war home

with one comment

I guess nothing has brought the war home to me like talking to my friend today.  It seems that somebody in his Yahoo Fantasy Baseball League warned him that he was going to have a difficult time managing his team this summer because he was being shipped out to San Antonio for pre-deployment training.  Then he’d be home for a bit before going to Fort Polk in Louisiana.  It is amazing how the war intersects with our daily lives in these ways.  When you see the soldiers on television you don’t think of them as people the same way you do when someone who knows a friend of yours is shipped off.  We need to continue to support our troops.  I’ve mentioned how much I love my Jeep Cherokee, but I’m going to start displaying a yellow ribbon on the back as a sign of solidarity.  It is the least we can do.

  1. Thanks. Every little bit helps. Just remember the families back home in your prayers, we need them too. I would encourage your readers to not only display their solidarity with a ribbon, but to display it with their actions. If they know a family affected by this, write a note, offer a lawn mow, a game of catch with their son’s, a laundry folding party, a homecooked meal that they don’t have to make… simple actions say more than 10,000 words sometimes. Thanks! Amie
