Sometimes I get wrapped up in myself

which is normal. But I was reading an article about Iraq War veterens coming home and all the post traumatic stress issues that they have and I was reminded of Jimmy, who was my boyfriend long long ago, the one who married a woman with my smile, who joined the Air Force soon after I went into Americorps.

And I realized that it is highly possible that Jimmy could have gone to war. and I suddenly hoped that he and his are okay. Because if he wasn't? I would have no way of knowing. So I guess this is my way of putting it out into the universe that if he did go to war, I hope he's home safe with his family. and if he didn't, I hope he doesn't.

Gina, that is one thing I really appreciate about you. Your support for our troops. I don't know whether you support the decision to go to Iraq, but I know you support the soldiers.sailors, airmen, and marines who are serving.

I do my best. goodness knows, they're out there suffering for my safety and freedom. They're out there fighting so that I have a right to choose not to be out there fighting. and so that I can sit in my leather chair and blog about it. they are extremely high on my list of things I am thankful for.
