I was so moved by this image in my neighborhood. I guess it was my “mother instinct” or perhaps it awakened an old, almost-healed hurt in my heart caused by the loss of a sibling. At any rate, whether we have soldiers in our lives, past or present, I am sure this will touch you in one way or another.
I dedicate this to all our Johnnies and their families serving our country at home and abroad. A heart-felt thanks goes out to you all. Welcome home Johnny!
