About half way through I looked at MAG and busted into tears. I just spent the day feeling sorry for myself about my stupid phone and here is a soldier who gave his life to serve our country, was hit by a bomb and is now blind, learning how to speak again and has to go to physical therapy 3 times per week. After watching this 2 minute segment my perspective towards life changed. I need to be more conscience about how lucky/thankful/blessed I am to live the life that I have.
In a few weeks my sister, Kristie, bf is going to Afghanistan. He is a Marine and will be going to one of the most dangerous areas of the country. This is his first tour. He joined the Marines because he didn't have a clear path in college and didn't want to go just to go. He wanted to grow up and figured the military would be the best place for him to do that. Please keep my sister in your thoughts and prayers. As of now he will be back in September, but as we all know tours can/are always extended.
MAG and I are looking for a way to help military families or soldiers. If you have any suggestions please let me know.
