My son's base in Afghanistan (COP Wilderness) was hit by a mortar attack today. My son is fine, and said it isn't what it sounds like (just wait until he becomes a parent).

But for all of you who have relatives in any branch of military service, know that my heart goes out to you. Thank you for being here, and being the sweet people you are. We here in the Gregorian fan community are very lucky people.

Dear Nancy,

I read your blog post today and I would like to let you know that I hope and pray that nothing will happen to your son in Afghanistan. I don't have any relatives in any branch of military service, but I can only imagine the constant worry and fear you must live in every day. I think of you sometimes and I do sincerely hope that with the spiritual support of Gregorian, your son will return home safely.

All the best,
Your friend

Dear Viktoria,

Thank you so much! I'm glad I heard it from my son, instead of seeing it somewhere else first.
He has about 6 more months there; I do not know what will happen after that. I feel guilty many times living safely as I do, while he is not safe. I pray many times a day for his safety, and that of the men he serves with.

Thank you again for your words and support--that means a great great deal!

*big hugs*

Dear Nancy, My prayers are with you and your son John and I think of you both during my daily
routine. My father was in the Army and I had Uncles who were in the service, but I have always been an antiwar person, from the time I was three years old in 1943 I would ask my mother why must people die in war? I can remember seeing the atomic bomb blast on TV of 1945, and I remember atomic air raid drills in elementary school where we had to get under our desks, etc.

However, I have always supported our troops and I felt bad for the parents and the loved ones of the boys on both sides of a conflict. I worked for the USAF in 66-69.

I believe that you must keep love in your heart and stay with the spirit of the Gregorian music and everything will be OK, for both you and John. I am sending you a hug with love, Alan

Dear Alan,

Yes, wars and violence of any kind are horrible things. Those who serve (most of them) do so for the best motives. I am glad they sacrifice for us, and I am very very proud of those who serve. It would be a wonderful world if countries did not need a military or police force, wouldn't it?

What a lovely man you are, I am so blessed in knowing you here. And your hugs are the best! Thank you :)

Hugs back atcha,
