Day 301

Mom – Day 301

Two more of our military were killed in Southern Afghanistan. As I was reading this story in the news, I was also drawn to another article where a mother and four children were killed with a roadside bomb. How can the Taliban justify this? It is so easy to kill when you don’t care who you kill, friend, foe or yourself! I thought with winter upon us the fighting would slow down. I guess a relatively mild winter in Afghanistan is a reason for the continued fighting. I keep on thinking about the soldiers that were killed recently (remember my gut feeling). I keep thinking about their thoughts, the vehicle they were in – or as Zach said, their tomb – and the survivors that witnessed all of this. Tonight, I will add two more families to my prayers.

Zach, I love you - Be Safe
