The Internet never ceases to amaze me. Truly. You start typing in your own little corner of the world and before you know it, a few clicks later you are flung all around the world. Amazing.
If I take one more step, it’ll be the farthest away from home I’ve ever been.
Come on Sam. Remember what Bilbo used to say: ‘It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.’
This morning my journey brought me to somewhere and someone quite remarkable. I started off reading a blog on the Bipolar Net Ring, which took me to Boston, Maine, Colorado, and Iraq. I followed Maj. Andrew Olmsted.
I wish I had known Andy. I ache for the grief his wife Amanda is suffering now. It makes me cry for all the family and friends of every soldier who has served or has ever fallen.
It makes the rhetoric the polititians throw about seem all the more pale and callous.
Hello, Andy. Thank you for serving your country.
