The story I posted about the soldier who was brought back from limbo when he heard the rally motto of the 101st, was on my mind ... and I didn't know why, but perhaps there is a link beyond the obvious.
There was a part of the video where the Father speaks of how he now knows how tough his son is ... and he chokes up a little. It made me think of the look in my Dad's eyes before some of my matches, particurlarly my 'beat Illinois' match. I remember everyone being worried ... but that is always the way it has gone for me. I take risks, and while to me they are all measured, I can see where folks would be a bit concerned.
Did I also add that he came to see me graduate from Air Assault school? Like the cat in the story, my Dad knows how 'tough' I am. Come to think about it, he knows how tough my darling brother is as well.
But I want to get back on message ... keep those thoughts to myself. Anywho, the cat was from New Jersey. And THAT is where my ol' Army buddy is from!! Stuff keeps going around and around and around ...
