Please say a prayer today for those in Ft Hood, Texas who are injured or have loved ones who are affected by the diabolical act that one man did yesterday.
We are not far from Ft Hood which is near Abilene, about 2 hours away. Luckily we dont know anyone posted there who was involved but I find the whole thing sickening. As a Military Wife (Notice the Capital letters... It is a JOB!) I have supported my husband in his chosen career and ALL the enlisted boys & girls know that deploying is part of the job. Whether they like it or not. When its your turn, its your turn. You suck it up and deal with it.
NEVER in a milllion years would anyone have thought that this act could happen. On-base has always been thought of as a safe place, with no threat of violence from outside influences. NEVER in a million years would anyone have thought that murder and mayhem would be inflicted on innocents by one of our own.
Thats all for today. Shocked, horrified, apalled, puzzled.
TOmorrow is Veterans Day in the USA. Think on.
