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.
