Come Home Safely, Come Home Soon
Even the extreme drought conditions and the unbearably dry Texas heat couldn’t ruin my time at home last weekend. It’s always nice to spend time with people who have known me since I was born – it makes me appreciate the good qualities I’ve worked hard to cultivate within myself. There is also something intriguing about towns surrounding military bases: I’m not sure if it’s the diversity, optimism, or the supportive energy. I suppose I feel this way mainly because I spent my entire childhood moving from one base to another, but as I’ve grown older it’s really hit me just how much these soldiers and their families sacrifice, oftentimes for people they don’t even know.
