last post for awhile

here's one more from the same story from the picture below - here's she reacting to her recounting her frustration with the situation with her son. tough to watch for sure, but i was grateful that she trusted me to be in her space.

i meant to post it earlier but i've been wrapped up in trip preparation for work in iraq - so the blog won't be active till late august, for those who check this space out.

Here's a picture that ran over the weekend. It was emotional seeing this woman in so much pain - but I hope some of the truth of what she is going through is reflective in the image.

Here's the caption:

"I pray every night that God will hold him, because I can't," weeps this woman,
whose son is an Iraqi War veteran.

Her son tried to kill his wife and is now in jail in Alaska.

She alleges that his son was suffering from post-traumatic stress and that
the military didn't offer proper mental support for him once he returned home
from the war after an 18-month tour.

"Sometimes all I can do is just pray," she said. "I just want to hold my son one more time."
