I'm going to take a quick moment to take a break from all of my posts about Georgia and have a "Debbie Downer" moment. We got news tonight that there was an attack on a Marine base in Afghanistan and 2 Marines have been reported dead, while others were injured. I'm counting my blessings that Lane didn't have to stay longer tha he did and that he's already home safe because the attacks were on the base that he was visiting. This is also the base where we have friends stationed right now.
Please take a few moments to say a prayer for the men and women who are over there. Pray for their safety as they're over there defending our freedoms and sacrificing time with their own families. Please remember the friends and families who are at home without their loved ones and especially the ones who have lost a loved one in the most recent attacks. This has hit much closer to home this time and I pray that these attacks will come to an end one day.
