"THERE ARE PEOPLE BEHIND THOSE NUMBERS"...when those words came out of Gayle King's mouth on CBS This Morning yesterday, they really hit home. As the family member of a deployed soldier, every headline hits home, but that one especially. You hear 3,000 troops being deployed, on 18 hours notice, but are you thinking about what they are rushing out the door and leaving behind? Families, pets, sometimes secondary careers. No matter where you stand when it comes to our political climate, please remember our troops and their families. Please remember that your support as they fight for our freedom is important. They don't make the decisions where or when, but they have to go. Sometimes without being able to tell their family where, sometimes without being able to even take a phone and sometimes without knowing when they'll be back. So please, support our troops every chance you get. With your heart, with your words. Every thought and every prayer matters.
