Oh no!

My son who will 18 on the 19th of this month got his Selective Service Registration. I held the envelope in my hand and sent up a prayer that he never have to put his life on the line. Is that bad? Don't get me wrong. I am proud of all the men and women who serve and have served. I'm proud to be in this country. But my baby having to go out and do all that- OMG! I pray, honestly that he never be called to do so. If that makes me unpatriotic and bad well, so be it.

Oh CRAP! I had completely forgotten that was happening!

Believe me, I have the utmost respect for the men and women who choose to serve. But this is pretty much a "just in case we need you" maneuver that chills me to the bone.

OHMYGOD I so want this frickin' frackin' war to be over!

OK, I'm breathing. Everything will be fine. Nothing is going to happen. We don't curretnly have a draft and we won't have one ever again.
