Below is a note from Dezmond
I am Dezmond, son of PaTrice or as you know her, Ducksafloat.
My mom pulled up a thread requesting prayer for me and let me read it. Even though she had emailed me copies of the prayers, I must tell you that I found them not only overwhelming but remarkable.
Just the thought of strangers praying for me and others in uniform has given me much to carry away as I am soon to return to Iraq.
One thing that stands out for me about my mother is that she has always made love go arround. I use to worry that she wouldn't have enough for herself, but I see, there is enough for everybody here because I felt it in reading the prayers. It makes me feel like I have family here, just haven't met yet.
I have always been proud to be in the Armed Forces, but I have no trouble in telling you, after reading these prayers and viewing this forum, I am even more proud to be a soldier because at this site, exist people filled with love. To feel love you must give love. To recieve love, you must accept love. Continue to give to one another love freely.
Before going to war, there was so much that I took for granite, during my time there, it has changed my entire outlook.
Have fun here and enjoy one another, be good to one another because at the end of the day and overall, one another is all that we have.
I realize that we are standing on many prayers. Please do not stop praying for us.
Have a great 4th of July and Thank You Everyone!
