Sad news from back home

My grandmother just called to let me know that the little boy I used to babysit when I was in high school was killed in Afghanistan last Friday.  He was 24 and in the Marines.  The mom and three kids moved away while I was in college, and we all lost touch.  I still think of him in diapers, not fighting for our country!

    Oh how sad.  It really breaks my heart when a young person dies defending the US.
