Last Night Together

Hate is a word that I do not use lightly.

I hate War. The pain that it inflicts on Mothers, Fathers, Wives, Girlfriends and Children is a lifetime scar on their hearts. 

My heart goes out to this young woman, I cannot even imagine the ache she must feel, the tears she has shed and will shed for some time to come. 

May her Angel be at her side  in all that she does.

2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps

The night before the burial of her husband 2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps, killed in Iraq, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of him, and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept. “I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it” she said. “I think that’s what he would have wanted.”
