Musings of the Reverend Meduri and Dr. Jackass
Most days, I almost forget all about Iraq. But I was struck recently by a most jarring thought. This war has been going on for so long at this point that during its tenure, I started dating the woman who would become my fiancee, I paid off an auto loan, I will have moved twice, I have grown and subsequently shaved multiple beards, I have seen friends come in to my life, and friends move along to new ones, I have joined a band, had a guitar stolen, thrown a cabin party, re-learned how to play piano, have finally traveled to Mexico (twice), went scuba diving for the first time, watched two brothers graduate from college, took a road trip from LA to Seattle and back, welcomed 6 new cousins into the family (3 births, 3 marriages), and the list goes on.
Now when I think about what has happened around me during the Iraq War, it makes me a little sad that these types of experiences are taken away from so many people who are mostly my age or younger.
This is my first post in well over a year. Maybe it will start something.
