21. i have a family i know, not good friends, but i care about them, that are like you
i really respect the father, he is a good guy. though he doesnt talk a lot so i know him a lot less than his wife. i really like her. he was in the marines forever. they have four boys. all but one enlisted, that is what they do in that family. again, i respect and value who they are, admire them. but man..... it is hard for me. i was so thrilled with the one that was different, the pot smoker. i found out the other day he too has enlisted. two are computer geeks and will be safe in iraq. the oldest was wounded seriously over a year ago and the parents flew to germany. i felt so bad. i found out not long ago that he is back in baghdad and the mother is scared to death. they think the troops needed to come home over a year ago. but they still do the job.

i hear what you are saying. but this mom.... not a chance in hell. i told my boys... i didnt give my all raising you to die in this war. i couldnt do it.

anyway,... i respect what you say. thanks for sharing the other perspective.
