Some may be wondering why I keep posting pictures of a passed soldier.
Well, the short story is he was my friend. The longer story, but still the edited version is this.
I knew Kevin years ago, when he was a different person, and so was I. We had an attraction, and one wild summer a fling. We lost track of each other for years, but I held him in my heart for a long time, because Kevin was a good man who I always would love. We caught back up with each other via facebook and I couldnt have been happier for him. He was now married (as was I) and we would talk kids and family.
He had joined the Army, and was recently sent to Afghanistan. From the start I was worried for him. I don’t know why, but I was.
On May 1, 2012 Kevin died over there. No one is sure why yet. Its been all over the news. Just look up Bruce Kevin Clark. Its been such a torment for his friends and family. I am having a horrible time dealing with this, I can’t even begin to imagine how his family feels.
Kevin has left many people behind him who loved him, looked up to him, and will miss him, including two young daughters.
I never approved of the war, or our soldiers being there. I don’t think its right, fair, or that we should even be there.
Hate the war. Love our soldiers.
My feelings are so incredibly complicated at this point, I don’t know how to sort them.
Ive never lost someone who meant to me what Kevin did. I am not even sure what he meant to me, Im still figuring that out as well, but it was a lot.
I don’t pray. But I hope for peace for all involved soon. Answers. Something.
Please keep these people in your minds, and hearts. They aren’t nameless and faceless beings. All soldiers arent assholes, even if you disagree with the cause. In fact, Kevin was a medic.
A week before he died he told me about a ten year old boy who he saved who had lost both his legs by stepping on a bomb.
Since its been in the news, the comments people have made have been so hurtful and so horrible. Its painful enough for those who care…..
Im sorry for the rant. Its been hard.
Back to posting random stuff. Thanks for the time.
