DS told me about a soldier he knew

Monday, December 19, 2016

Good evening; I hate when I hear stories of such loss. A soldier he knew got hurt in Afghanistan and lost his arm and leg. He called home to see how he would be treated going home. He said that a friend of his is coming home and needs a place to go. He lost his arm and leg. His parents told him not to come there. They do not need to care for someone like that. He got off the phone and climbed to a high building and jumped off. My DS was upset. Words can hurt. I think I will be thinking about this for awhile.

    Oh Dear Lord, my heart feels like it fell in a million pieces. Not just for that poor Soul but for your son.

    I hope you assured your son that you would welcome him home regardless of the condition his body might be in if he had been in the same situation.

    Peace and Care
