Two Funerals In Two Weeks
Adam Van Alstine & John Thorton. Both out of 3/7 29 Palms. Ben is going to both. I have never been so incensed or fucking out of my mind. I am so fucking pissed. PISSED REALLY PISSED. How dare these bastards these fucking cowards and thieves kill our kids? FUCK THEM TO HELL.

My son is so distraught. So fucking hurt. How dare they? FUCK. FUCK. FUCK.

ended soon enough. I just got an email update from my friend who was injured in Iraq on her LATEST reconstructive surgery.

Tell Ben he is not alone. That's all I can think to say right now.

2. Please know we share your angry and your pain.
I'm in tears reading your post. Poor Ben has been through so much and losing two friends must be almost unbearable for him.
RIP Adam and John The world will never know what might have been.

4. I Am So Torn Up Over What This Has Done To Ben
I mean I am 22 years older than him and I know how horrific this is. He just has had too much too soon.

5. I am sorry, honey. We've lost a few up here over the last three or
so weeks. One after another. Hug your boy for us.

6. I'm so sorry.
It realy is too dreadful for words. This week the second Vermont Guardsman in the last 3 months, from my very little town, was killed. It's like being socked hard in the stomach when it comes close to home, hits families we know. And it not just our kids, it the fathers of so many children. It truly sucks.

9. Oh Cali This Just Takes My Breath Away
After Ben got hit I was just wishing upon wish that V would make it back whole. Ben's dad moved him when he was in high school so he did not have any friends in school. V was his first friend since ninth grade.

This and Thor tons death just fucking kill me. I am so far away from Ben and he needs a hug. He feels so GUILTY for being alive.

11. Body Good Head Fucked Up
My family is the most gifted of athletes. We are the tallest strongest on the tree. Only who knows what our hearts feel. Broken ones are always hidden.

8. And that POS Chimp . . .
. . . plays cricket (badly) and trades jobs that our young people desperately need . . . for mangoes.

I'm really sorry, Binka.

Ben's had much too much, for one so young.

10. God almighty. I can't believe I still have to argue on other message
boards that we need to get the hell out of Iraq NOW! Some people don't get it that every day we stay, two other families lose a son or daughter, mother or father. Bush is a terrorist to his own country.

Please tell Ben we are all sending our hugs. This is too much ugliness for one so young.

13. Take care, Binka!
Sending healing energy Ben's way.

The world needs Ben; he can teach so much. I'm hoping he understands that. The Higher Power has him here for good reason.

19. To My Baby As A Tribute To His Friends
My head is hanging with shame
Hollow people bargain your death
How much a pound

I so value you
Your birth weight gold
Integrity precious and hefty

Salvation is not lost
Just missing in action
Crying for mine

28. Pottymouth, LOL
This bullshit has to end NOW!. I think with you there for him Ben will turn out OK. It's really rough right now for all of us, but especially so for those like you who have to deal with this on a personal basis daily. Peace, love and strength to you my friend.

29. Raw
I am just raw. And I hate it. I am a mother and I want to put some icing on the fucking cake but I can not. Even the worlds best mommy can not gild shit.

30. Keep doing what you're doing Binka, support Ben and when you can
do what you are able to, to help end the war.

You're an awesome Mom who raised awesome kids. These bastards will be "fucked to hell" it's just gonna take another couple of years... I and so many others will stand by yours and Bens' side until (and past) that day. We will see this through.

Energy and empathy...

Peace soon...
