Today is a sad day.
“How do soldiers killing each other solve the world's problems?”
- Calvin & Hobbes
Today is one of those days that makes you want to hold those you love a little bit closer, a little bit tighter, & a little bit longer.
Right now, I am sitting in my chair, with misty eyes, watching CNN. There has been a horrible tragedy at Ft Hood, TX today. This news causes my heart to skip a beat because that is where my brother is currently stationed. My heart goes out to those who have lost a loved one day. Thankfully, we did not lose a family member. D remained safe and sound during the shootings.
If you have an extra prayer, please say one for my brother as his base recovers from the horrible events that have just occurred.
Since the news story is still breaking, there are not a lot of details that have been released. So far we know that there were 3 shooters, 31 people have been injured and 12 have been killed.
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone in the Military, past and present, for your dedication and all that you do. You sacrifice daily for our country without giving it a second thought. You do so much that "Thank you" doesn't seem sufficient. It really is appreciated even if the appreciation is not vocalized often enough.
