Today

Today my husband left at 4:30 a.m.
Today a fallen soldier was carefully placed on a plane.
Today my husband was on a plane with someone dear to the fallen soldier.
Today a mother and father met their fallen son.
Today someone has such grief I can not comprehend.
Today someone on the other side of the world is putting their life on the line for mine.
Today I can be thankful for the soldiers serving our country.
Today there was a moment of silence.
