Anxiety

Today my son trooped aboard a jet and disappeared into the sky, destinied for the war. I never wanted him anywhere near the fighting but he said "Dad, that's where the mission is."

And now that's where he is.

I never wanted any American in the Iraq war; I was deadset against it long before all the braying jackasses decided it was a bad idea. If the politicians all had "some skin in the game," then maybe they would give more careful consideration of American blood in foreign adventures.

Please give me and my boy a hopeful prayer and let him and all our sons and daughters return home safely, for they were not the cause of these wars and they should not have to bear the burdens for other people's flawed egos and poor judgment.

God save us all and bless the real patriots.

Thanks, guys. I appreciate the thoughts. I will be keeping my fingers crossed and my candles lit for the foreseeable future, since no one has any idea where he is or when he'll be back.

May your beautiful boy return safe and sound.

I have seen my son through two tours of duty in Iraq. I understand your anxiety. We will all pray for your son,please keep busy, and he will be home safe and sound before you know it. (He sure is a nice looking guy!).

Thanks again, folks. I told my son about your comments and he was tickled. We still don't know where he is what he's doing exactly but at least he got to call home and we know he arrived, wherever he is, safely. Thanks again.

The anti-anxiety medicine xanax is wholly capable of facilitating your war against anxiety as it is the most widely recognized medication to treat anxiety disorders, especially generalized anxiety disorders and altogether Xanax can treat a whole lot of anxieties related to panic disorders and depression. Before you move on to administer Xanax and treat your anxiety, get hold of Xanax tidbits from the site http://www.pill-care.com
