we are

we are the ones left behind.

we are the ones struggling to maintain normal.

we are the ones that must remain strong.

we are the ones that are fiercely loyal and completely dedicated, even when we do not understand or agree.

we are the ones that serve unofficially.

we are the ones that can never watch the news or listen to the radio, read the paper or the internet headlines without anguish.

we are the ones that listen for the knock on the door or a ring from our phone.

we are the ones that hold our breath.

we are a family that whispers quietly, things we can’t bare to speak in a normal voice.

we are the ones that just watched our loved one go away, again.

we are the ones that will pray for 365 days, not just for our own, but yours too.

we are a military family.
