THEY ARE COMING HOME!
Everyday I see newspaper headlines of pure crud. This week there have been at least two online headlines of a local person getting arrested for their second and third DUIs. They get more coverage than our soldiers (remember them? Our sons, daughters, husbands, wives, mothers, and fathers????) coming home from Iraq?
I wrote yesterday about nightmares of waking up in Wally-world. This is far worse. I've shared facebook posts about my favorite music artists, about fracking in Sharonville, about this and about that. But does no one think it is Facebook worthy that our troops are COMING HOME FROM IRAQ?
Someone please inform me if I have missed something. If this is not a reason to be celebrating. For the past seven years I've lived in fear that my daughter - my baby girl- would be sent back to Iraq.
What am I missing? Our soldiers are returning home to America, the land that I love, God bless it all!
How about a smile? A pat on the back? A thank-God-they-are-coming-home?
Really? Is this MY America??????
