Takin a Step Back

Sometimes, in life, we get too wrapped up in our own crap. We need to take a step back occasionally to look at the big picture. I know our stresses are big, even if just to us, but sometimes there are things that are bigger than us. A good friend of mine has a son in the Army. He's in Germany right now. Well, he has a best friend who is in the marines. His best friend is smack in the middle of hell in Afghanistan. 7 in his troop has died already. My good friend is asking for prayers and well wishes on her Facebook page. She is also giving out the marine's contact info for those who want to send a care package.

It doesn't matter how you feel about the war and the reasons we are over there, what matter is we have men and women over there giving their lives for the U.S.A. It's high time to put our disdain for the government aside and focus on the important thing....the human lives over there. It's that simple. There are no politics, no opinions, no rationalizations...only HUMAN LIFE. They don't have to worry about how they are going to pay their rent. They don't worry how they are going to afford food. Nope. They just have to worry about something as "small" as STAYING ALIVE.

So if you have a Facebook account, I strongly urge you to head over to her page and at least give your well wishes. It would mean a lot to a lot of people. Let's stop worrying about our insignificant (in comparison) worries over here at least long enough to extend our hearts to men and women risking their lives for us while we sit on our comfy couch watching poorly acted movies. ;)
