A Rough Day...
I woke up from a terrible nightmare to a phone call. My Mom was quieter than normal when she asked if I knew Andrew Looney. Specialist Looney, who graduated from high school with me, was killed Tuesday from a suicide bomber in Afghanistan. He was 22 years old. Today has just been rough. Having known someone who gave their life and then preparing to send my husband over there in a few short weeks is just overwhelming. I can't even imagine what Andrew's family is going through at this moment. But, I lift them up in my thoughts and prayers and ask that anyone reading this does the same. God bless you Andrew Looney and thank you so much for the sacrifice you have made for this country!
