Actually I think you Marine's is intent on making me cry tonight....my very own special one said this to me "If this is my time than I can think of no nobler cause. At least it is not over some barrels of oil".
He's ready...I'm not....but I never would be I guess (speaking from a mom's heart) but gotta say...I am proud of him and you and the rest of the military, but most especially my Marine's!! I think I do need the sign that says "Dear Lord....Please put your arm around my shoulders and your hand over my mouth". Almost got into it with a mom that said she didn't want her son to go to war....but if he was called he would go (meaning the draft) because he was too soft-hearted. Well, what does she think my son is? A hard-hearted street fighter or some other lowly type thug with no heart? Probably wouldn't be too good for the boy to find out his mom's in jail!! But seriously, I think that for some of us we need to steel ourselves for this type of talk. Anyone have any good answers?
Keepin' you all in my prayers. Ione
