No card today ...

Just some sad news.  My sister's grandson (my nephew's son) who is a young Marine serving his second deployment in Afghanistan was badly injured by an IED last night.  He has lost both his legs, and possibly his left hand.  He is an incredibly handsome young man with the most beautiful eyes ever.  I am having great difficulty comprehending how much his life has changed.  Please keep Michael's family in your prayers as he is being transferred to Germany, then on to Bethesda for treatment.

Oh Judy this is terrible news, so sad for a young man to have these dreadful injuries. I will be thinking of Michael and his family over the next few weeks and I hope the treatment goes well for him.
