Yesterday my son told me he had his shots against Antrax and a few other terrible chemical wapens... this means that if there is going to be a war in Irak he has to go there too... he has already been to Kosovo and Bosnia...as a member of the Dutch KFOR... sigh... I feel so terrible about this... and there are so many mothers like me...
This is NOT what I had in my mind when he was born 25 years ago...and I was looking in his eyes for the first time...
I understand. I too will keep him in my prayers. My daughter was in the Air Force and her patriotic spirit is in full bloom now! If she could, she would re-inlist to join the other armed services around the world.

My friend... I thank you and your son for your sacrifice. I cannot imagine how hard it must be for your family, but I thank you.. and your whole nation for being loyal to your allies and to the cause of freedom. May God bless you all!
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.--Jesus Christ

I can only tell you as a Mother of a son, I can imagine the pain you are feeling along with the pride, but wondering which one outweighs the other. May God be with you all at this time, and I shall truly say a prayer for you this evening.
