Current mood: relieved
So my baby brother called me finally. He had some personal time today, and he shared some of that scarce personal time with me. All this time, I was worried... Worried that he was hungry, cold, lonely, depressed... He's only 18, and being charged with the duty to protect this country. I still haven't figured out who the enemy is, but that's a whole other blog for a whole other study-less all nighter. This connection was elucidating because for the first time, I understood what Yasser was saying without being explicit. He was telling me that he was ok. that he was fine. that he was content with life. That he loved me, that he loved our baby brothers and sister, that he misses NY, that he misses our arguments from years past. I am so relieved, happy, content, and comfortable. I can rest now - well not really. I have to write a couple of papers. But everything is under God's control. No need to worry when THE Supreme Being is handling things.
