this is how i felt when my sailor walked away from me to leave for deployment....but you just have to stay strong and wave and smile and turn your head so he doesnt see the tears running down your cheek so he doesnt say hes sorry because you know he cant help it and you may need him but his country needs him more right now.
We often think if we let go of people, or move away, or shut ourselves out from the world that our salvation will be found. There is however one thing you cannot run away from, and that is yourself. All the above will be in vain, because where you go, there you are. LadyB
