My when my wife came home last night from MASS/CHURCH she bught the little newsletter that they publish and in it was a small poem I thought you might like. :) :)

You walk along enjoying the view
He walks the streets searching insurgants and terrorists
You complain how hot it is
He wears heavy gear not daring to take his helmet
off to wipe his brow
You go out to lunch and complain the restaurant got
the order wrong
He doesn't get to eat today
Your maid makes your bed and washes your clothes
He wears the same things for weeks but makes sure
his weapons are clean
You go to the mall and have your hair done
He doesn't have time to even clean his teeth
Your'e angry because your class ran five minutes
over time
He told you that he will be held over for a further
two months
You call your fiance and make a date for tonight
He waits for the mail to see if there is a etter from
You roll you eyes when a baby cries
He get's photo's of his new child and wonders if
they will ever meet
You hear jokes about the war and make fun of
men like him
He hears the gunfire, bombs and the screams of the
You see only what the media want you to see
He sees the broken bodies lying around him
You are asked to go to the shops by your parents.

He does exactly what he is told even if it puts
his life in danger
You stay at home watching TV
He takes whatever time he is given to call home, sleep
and eat
You crawl into your soft bed with soft pillows and
get comfortable
He tries to sleep but gets wakened by mortars and
helicopters all night
