Today I met another Blue Star Mom. She came to our shop, we began to chat. She told me her son was a Navy Seal and now he is a surgeon in Afghanistan. Her eyes quickly took on the glassy-look, I know all too well. She shared with me that she is more scared for her son now, than she ever has been during his missions as a Navy Seal. This mom told me how much her heart hurts, how deeply she fears for her son's safety. We exchanged a hug. She told me, "I hope my son never meets your son."
Oh dear God in Heaven, please never allow our sons to meet.
