clearing my head was created by 2chops
Found out last night that my nephew's Marine unit was on patrol when an IED went off and took him out. It's one of those things that's in the back of your mind, but you pray never happens. One of the comforting thoughts is that he went honorably, doing what he wanted to do since he was a wee lad.

I sat there @55' and played some blues riffs on my "c" harp, reflected on some stuff we did when he was a boy. Now, just a few short years into adulthood, he's gone.

God bless you Abe. You will be missed. :(

That is a tragedy. Another young life ended before its time. Sorry to hear it.

Terrible news and something that seems to be happening more and more often. Our Deputy PM plans to get our troops out of Afganistan by 2015. Lets hope it can be sooner.

When I went through a low patch a few years ago I remember sitting in the top of a Beech tree one night thinking 'no matter what happens I will always have this place...'
