This is Part 2 in a series copied and pasted from a lengthy email I received from a 14-year-old girl named Tiffani. She willingly and passionately agreed to share this with all of you (Part 1 was posted on June 3). Her 33-year-old father was just sent to Iraq. She inadvertently found out his mission, which is among the most dangerous and is one typically covered by the media.
T he truth about the families and the kids on Iraq.
Now some people move on and just forget about it, but for me ….its all I can think about. Every night I have the same dream. That a car will pull up in front of my house……and ill receive that letter. I've memorized that letter….that stupid letter, that" dear family member of this soldier …we are sorry to inform you the loss of this brave young man or woman who has died. They didn't die in vain they died in honor fighting for this great country……" how can you forget something like that? I can't even concentrate at school. How are you supposed to learn algebra…when for all you know you dad could be dying that second. How can you walk around school with a smile when really you're dying inside? Praying that nothing is happening.
