I’m still doing the “road warrior” thing today with a quick trip over to Indianapolis. I had to share one quick story from my trip to Denver. I was walking through the airport in Columbus I saw a family (older Mom and Dad, young wife, husband and baby) taking pictures together. As I approached, they asked if I could take a picture for them. The mom proudly said “He’s going back to Iraq today….2nd tour of duty”.
Talk about a reality check. Here was this young man, with a wife and child and he was leaving for the second time. When they thanked me for taking the picture, I simply said “no, thank YOU for your service to our country.” I think I walked away from that moment with a lot to think about and even more the be thankful for.
