This just in my brother WILL NOT be going to Afghanistan in January '08!!! I never mentioned it before (probably because its too hard to bring up in casual conversation) but he had been telling our family that he would be deployed after the New Year. Of course this made my heart sink into an awful pit of depression that had lasted as long as the day he told me this past May. He has always kept a positive attitude and I have not a clue as to what it has been like for him as well as those who have suffered greatly from this war. I'd just like to take a moment to say how sincerely lucky our family is to have had him come home in one piece the
how to be cool.
All and all it's been an outstanding Thanksgiving.
