Wow has it been a hard week for the military. Everyone knows about the Ft. Hood shooting. We have a very close friend that was scheduled to be home on Monday and was detained for a week in Iraq. I am so grateful that he was not home during this shooting and he is safe. His wife and children are also safe but stressed. The children were not released from the schools until very late and she did not get back home until after 10:00. The feeling everyone is going through is undescribable. While Fort Campbell was reeling from this news the next news hit us. A female soldier was shot by her husband who then called 911 and killed himself. If this was not tragic enough the small children were present in the house. I am just heartbroken for all these families who are experiencing such loss and especially for the children who have now lost parents. What can even be said to them?? Always being in the schools who consist of all military children I get to see first hand how resilant these children are and how proud they are of their soldier!!! It is a pretty amazing thing and I feel blessed that I get to be part of it.
