No- i'm cautious...i don't let my guard down because i don't think we can in these times anymore....but i'm not freaked out worrying about it or anything (i have soo many other things on my mind at the moment).
What DOES worry me though is that if something were to happen- i know Colin would get called right back up
That really scares me. He was a Lt. (3rd rank) in the Navy before he got out to become a police officer and persue that dream. He was in the Navy for 8 years and right now his status is "inactive reserve." If something major were to happen i'm sure he'd have to go back- i understand though- he feels its his duty to serve his country....but at the same time- i want him here with me so that's just hard to think about.
Tomorrow though- we plan to do something to honor those who lost their lives. We will lower our flag to half mast and be sure that everyone who drives by our home knows how much we love and support our country and the memory of those innocent people killed during that day and in the war that's followed. We love and support our soldiers and the sacrafices them and their families have made. i want that to be shown- so that if anyone drives by, they will know our house hasn't forgotten you know. That's important to me and colin.I plan to get a big yellow ribbon to put around the tree in front of our house if i get a chance tomorrow too.
for me though- tomorrow is about honoring the memory and the lives of all those angels who have passed on, it's not about living in constant fear- that's exactly what the terrorists want.
