Back in the sand

We have another friend heading back over to Iraq today. His name his John Heald, a Marine. Please put him on your prayer lists.

His mom and I worked together 20 years ago at a local TV station. We had drifted over the years after I realized that I was stumble tongued and not able to do live TV. Two years ago, we reconnected. Don't think we could have ever imagined that our two young sons who were bouncing around the newsroom would have gone to war . . . voluntarily, 20 years later.

How did that happen?

From one Blue Star Mother to another, my prayers are with her... Above all, I thank John for his sacrifice, for his courage and for his service.
My prayers are lifted for his strength and safe return home.
