I would run away if I were him. He didn't ask for this life as a shadow child. Nice post though. I like his musings about the military life. I come from a big military family. It is weird but I never once worried about any of my deployed family members dying. It's like you put that out of your head. You convince yourself that their job won't take them to the danger zone or they are so good at their jobs that they will be alright. My husband is retired bomb disposal and I never worried once. I also never asked him what he did at work today. LOL! Cem's thoughts sound very much like the thoughts of a child in a military family. Nice job.
