Response to I hear ya.....remember WE are here for you.....always.....
I have had to grit my teeth several times this week! A lady I work with yesterday told me that she thought of me immediately on Tues. knowing my dear one was a Marine.(I bit my tongue to keep from saying or asking, "you didn't think about it before?") yada,yada, yada, all the same things many of us are hearing. She has an 18 year old and said she was fearful about the draft. Then she looked away from me and at least had the decency to not add anything about not wanting him to go. I have to give her credit for that one. But I still had to nearly bite my tongue in half to keep from saying, "Oh, not your son, but some one else's is fine, is that it?"
I don't know Ione, when I think of a good reply or a good way to keep from biting my tongue off, I will let you know. I think it is going to take a whole lot of prayer!
