Remembering All


This Remembrance Day is different for the Stressed family. My brother in law is currently in Afghanistan doing something. My sister is therefore one who waits, wondering why her satellite phone call isn't happening.

She knows why really but tries not to think of it, because there's been a death and the next of kin are waiting for the knock at the door. Remember everyone today, including those left behind.

I envy him but not her.

We will all be thinking of your sister in 26 minutes time. For she is the unknown, and acknowledged victim of the conflict.

There should be some kind of medal for those left at home. Good thoughts to all of you
