a fellow who was very close to some of my friends and to my younger cousin was just shot through the head in iraq. the fellow soldier he was with was shot through his mouth.
we just found out tonite.
my heart fell to my knees when i found out; it was literally sickening. i just immediately Blessed myself and said a Prayer.
i knew him, but not as well as these guys.
some jerk called my little cousin a name at the bar for crying over it tonite, and when my cousin said he just lost his buddy in iraq, the guy said, 'who cares?'. my big brother proceeded to put him through a wall and then broke his nose. now, normally i'd be so mad at big bro for fighting, but after that remark, i couldn't have been prouder of him.
please send your prayers to these young soldiers and thier families.
