Aside 16 Apr

Today, I was going to write about all of the exciting things that have been going on in my life right now. About going to prom with my friend, about my last trip to MEPS, and about my swearing in ceremony today. But, with all that’s happened today, with all of the bombings, I feel less excited about anything thats happening in my life right now. I feel it would almost be dishonorable to talk about my accomplishments and endeavours while three people in Boston and an unknown number in Iraq have lost their lives today to bombings.

I will say that I wish I wasn’t just a sitting duck right now. I wish I could do something, anything to help the people that were directly affected, or even the family who’re waiting in hospitals to recieve word on their loved ones. I wish I could help find whatever sick bastards think things like these are okay to do. But right now, I can’t do any of that. So I’ll pray for their lives, that their injuries aren’t fatal, for the National Guardsmen and women that are going to assist them, or in the case of those in the Iraq, that anyone assists them at all. For now I’ll pray, because thats all I can do.
