DS surfaced- disabled vet
Thursday, March 03, 2016
Good evening; With my program, I have gotten stronger mentally and spiritually.
Mothers are special breed. When I am in program the words just flow. My DS has a hard time accepting his disability. He remembers what he looked like. As he said things were so easy for him. Everything is a struggle now. Just the simplest SH.. as he says. I just keep telling him to stay safe and that he was loved. He just sent me a txt that he is all right and he loves me. He is over 75 miles away. I invited him to come home to talk but he said no. What I know about my son; his mom was sitting on his shoulder when he went into the battle in Iraq. He would call me at the strangest hours and when he was most afraid. Afraid he would die or be captured. It took a toll on his soul. He feels at times that no one cares about him and they wish he would just go away and shoot himself. I love this man my son who was so damaged by war. I will not give up on him. I will always be on his shoulder telling him to stay safe and that he is loved. For all the families who are going through this side effects of war on these young people, I have send my prayers. Our government should do everything possible b/4 they send our treasures to war. They would not do so freely if it was their sons or daughters. My son will have many years to pay for his year of service in a war. There are so many like him. I love my country very much. But we have had too many continuous wars.
