No Parents

Tonight I was listening to a story about a family with three young children
whose mother, father and stepfather are all being deployed in Iraq and
Afghanistan.  The children will be at home being raised by their
grandmother.  It was a heart wrenching story for me to listen
to.  I got to a point where they had closed the door to the room
where they were doing the interviewing in and the youngest girl
literally cries out in terror because she can’t see her mother for a
moment.  The fear in her voice shook me to my core.  As I
raise my daughters without a mother, I think about these children who
for at least some indeterminate time will be raised with no parents.
