    Mother & Son going to War together

    I love how the 18-year old son says he's going to war to keep an eye on his mother. SO sweet. What a wonderful family.

    Sorry, but I can't force a smile about ANYONE going to war. Wish no one had to...

    This story made me cry

    But it also made me think if they sent more mama's over there the war would be over sooner and less bullets used

    Whenever I meet a man or woman in uniform or even over hear someone not in uniform but is talking about being "over there" they always get a hug and a big Thank You from me .

    I met one soldier whose eyes welt up with tears when I did that and said "We wish more folks would do what you just did."

    What could I say ? I just hugged him again and told him " They are out there darlin' even if they don't say it, it's in their hearts.

    Me too! It's just twice as sad - especially since they sound so lovely.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!
