I am sorry for your loss and for the anger I know you must be feeling. You are in the home stretch, just a few more months and then it is my turn.

I was afraid these latest bombings were near you
I ended up adding you as a friend in LJ through several degrees of separation (friend of friend -- that sort of thing), and have been reading your posts daily. I don't know what to say; I've never been in a war, though living in Ireland was the closest I'll come (daily car bombs, checkpoints, etc.) and I grew up in the military and lived on bases until I was about your age. I fear for you, and I wanted you to know that someone who is reading you whom you don't know is thinking of you and hoping, praying, you are safe.

Keeping posting. We get so little unbiased news here (the administration won't let photos of the dead and mortally wounded, or coffins, be printed in the mainstream media -- though some sneaks through), though of course most of us who are net-savvy are reading the European newspapers online.

Moreover, keep posting so that we know you are well.

Speaking of which -- any more giant bugs? :)

Re: I was afraid these latest bombings were near you
I knew you were reading, you've been in my friends list for a while too. ;)

Like I mentioned a while ago, everyone should be able to say or read or think anything they want. Just because the current administration doesn't seem to want the same thing doesn't mean that's the way it should be.

I'll keep posting until I get blown up myself, though I wouldn't have secured posts if I didn't have to (look at the previous link)... but for now that's what I need to do.

No giant bugs, but I took a picture of two geckos on a window screen last night. I haven't checked to see if they came out at all yet, though...

Re: I was afraid these latest bombings were near you
And luckily, for us non-internet savvy, we have people like Micheal Moore who, while doing some fact twisting, don't pull punches when dealing with these issues.

I'm glad that you're posting though and I get to read what you write. Things over here are a little screwy when it comes to Iraq news. You can see from what some people have posted in MY journal that the public isn't as informed as they think they are.

Thanks, I just hope it's the last time I have to make a post like this.
