Closing thoughts

This has been a very long hard day. But I think the anticpation of the anniversary of my nephew’s death was worse than the actual day once it arrived. One thing that made things better was all the people at the DOHA web site and the Iraqi War Veterans forum.

I also got some nice emails from friends of Mike who were wanting to share the feelings of loss. I talked to my Mom and one of my brothers. A local TV station did a short but nice interview of him as a follow up on Mike’s death. I was very surprised at how nicely my brother handled the interview.

Another amazing thing has also happened. All of a sudden since the late evening yesterday, I have gotten a flurry of signatures on my Petition to get Mike his Purple Heart. I started off yesterday with about 41 and now have over 160. Those signatures made my day. Thank you to everyone who signed the petitionPlease pass the word.
