Coming Home…

I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Tell the world I’m coming home

Let the rain wash away, all the pain of yesterday

I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes

I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Tell the world I’m coming

I think the dance above choreographed by the amazing “NappyTabs” really struck a chord with many people across the US, myself included. Ironically this episode of So You Think You Can Dance came on right after our President announced troop withdrawal plans. I am not going to say much about this because I do not want ANY sort of debate but I am here to remind you all a few things………. Most people have blinders on and only hear the good news/bad news (however you take it) of the troop withdrawal plan announced by our President…… BUT what you may not know is that does NOT mean deployments stop. My brother-in-law arrived in Afghanistan this past weekend and my brother Curtis is set to deploy in a few short months. So while some troops get to start coming home they are quickly being replaced my more troops…..it is not always what it seems. So my point is we all need to still have our military on our minds, thoughts and prayers. Because while our “wonderful” news stations will (I assume) only start to show wonderful videos of troops coming home/how wonderful things are after this “announcement”…..they will soon forget to show the new phase of troops that are being sent over on their deployments. Just food for thought!
