12 years ago

It was just about 12 years ago that I sat on my living room floor, watching Natalie take her first tentative steps. It was the January, 1991, and while Natalie was inching her way towards me, someone on CNN was talking about the beginning of Operation Desert Storm.

Just thinking out loud.


Um... so why is the title of the post "13 years ago"?

I remember. I was there. We went from "Awwww-ing" Natalie to "Ohmygod-ing" at the news from CNN.

So you change the title but don't delete my comment... so now I look like I can't count to twelve... uh, I mean thirteen.

I cried when I heard the news, I was afraid the gov't would use it as an excuse to re-start the draft. My son was 12 at the time.

Now he's 24 & in the Navy. I'm more scared now, for different reasons.

But I still think it needs to be done.
