A Day of Sadness

My heart has been full of sadness all day - learning of the brutal murders of these fine young men ~ PFC Thomas Lowell Tucker and PFC Kristian Menchaca. I am grieving for their families and friends. I am grieving for all of the young men and women in the military who have been affected by this atrocity. And, I am grieving for our country - that people can act like nothing happened, can lay easy blame on anyone but the terrorists who were using them to represent us. And, I am ANGRY ~ angry that an atrocity like this happens and the citizens of this country are not outraged, not aware that they would like to do that to each of us.

I am keeping these families in my prayers.
