St. Mary and the Soldiers

We send a lot of packages to the military and I checked something out. Turns out, we can send care packages. Having Bajan in town for the weekend was teary-eyed and terrifying. I just keep praying and praying and praying that he comes back home in one piece/peace. He showed me pictures and him being convoy leader and part of a special unit strictly there to help people through puts him right on the front line. He's on the damn front line. I'm crying now. This is stupid. It's war. And people get shot at and blow up every day. And being back in the south has made me seem to feel the war more. I feel like I see more flags and bumper stickers here for families with soldiers. Statistically, I bet I'm right. But before I leave St. Mary Market to my mom to run, I'm going to send a care package to...Issaac in Pakistan and his crew.
