I've Got Nothing Today...

I am still trying to wrap my head around the horrific tragedy that occurred at Fort Hood yesterday. Being a military family, something like this hits close to home. Our family is praying for all of those who lost loved ones. When your husband/brother/son, wife/sister/daughter is deployed your emotions stay subconsciously on heightened alert because you know that they must walk a fine line every day to keep themselves safe. When your service member is back home on base, you allow yourself to breathe again, settling back into normalcy and believing that your loved one will go about their daily tasks and arrive safely at their home each night. This changed everything-to be attacked by a fellow service member has left me with chills that won't go away. My hope is that those families who lost loved ones, and those who were wounded can feel the prayers of the nation today.
