Nope. Nothing.

No title.

No words.

I don't even know if I have a proper thought. Someone i knew was killed in Afghanistan. I keep having these jolts as I remember and hear the words hit me again: "he died". Nope, that's not right. I remember us going for nachos and bowling and parties and lazy old hanging out. He's not dead.

He wasn't even someone who was that close to me. One of my best friend's ex boyfriends. I knew him for years. The two of them, and Theran and I, we went on some double dates. I just don't know what to say.

I saw his picture in the paper. And I saw it on the news. They showed the soldiers caskets being carried and I thought I might throw up knowing he was in one of those boxes.

They were handing out candy to local kids. That's all, just giving out treats. And some guy comes along with a bomb on a bicycle. One minute passing around candies...

And now he's gone.

Oh my I am so sorry. I wish they would just take all the men and women out of there and mind our business. HUGS

I\'m so sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. I too have known soldiers who have been killed over there. It never gets easy.

Man.  I\'m sorry.  I have 2 cousins there right now, it\'s frightening.
AAAAnd my handing out candy joke on the other blog entry is suddenly WAY less funny.  Leave it to me to jam my foot directly down my throat.

Aww, i\'m sorry for your loss hun.  I had an American friend who never came home and it is a difficult thing to swallow.  My thoughts are with his friends and family.

I\'m terribly sorry for your, and his families loss.  I\'d go so far as suggest we shouldn\'t even be there but that would be doing his memory a great disservice.
It just boggles the mind that terrorists would be as hellbent as to something that trecherous and sinister in amongst children.
Bless his noble heart.
