Day 16: A song that makes you cry (or nearly)
This song always takes me back to the day my husband deployed to Iraq in December 2005. I remember sitting at home after I had put my boys to bed and looked at the many pictures I had taken that day. I remember hearing this song and thinking it would be a perfect song for the pictures so I made the video below. I cried while making the video. I shared it with the many families in our unit and most of their responses to it mentioned tears.
Now when I hear this song, the images from this video go through my mind. I get that ache in my chest when you try to hold back the tears. War is harsh on Military Families.
I am also adding this video, it has many pics from the day before and the day they left that warm, sunny day in Texas. This video makes my heart ache too, I invested a lot of emotion into these Soldiers. I still think of many of them often. I listen to this song and think of the Soldiers and I smile through the tears.
The bottom line for both of these songs I guess is summed up in this quote...
"In war, there are no unwounded Soldiers." ~Jose Narosky
