All was well today. Then I hopped on Facebook quick to mess around before getting back to work. I was in the middle of writing my normal class notes blog post when I noticed a posting from a friend. The name wasn’t in the message. That made it all the worse. It’s hard to describe that feeling when you know you are about to learn of another tragedy. Everything shifted. I started scrambling trying to figure out who it was and what happened. 

I’m trying to keep it together while I’m sitting here at work, but I can feel the emotions building; sitting in the back of my throat. Another brother gone by his own hand. 

It’s such an odd feeling when you haven’t seen or heard from some of these guys in almost a decade. Sometimes it’s longer. Yet, no matter where you are or what you’re doing, you feel it. 

Well, happy Veterans day.
