Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


When you're feeling low

About the time that I start to really feel sorry for myself and our situation, something comes along and smacks me upside the head.

Today's courtesy whomp comes from an email prayer chain that I'm on. It is coordinated by a guy at the local university. He includes prayer requests from "young inmates" at a local juvenile correctional facility. These always seem to break my heart the most - coming from young men under the age of 18. The shit these kids have already dealt with and will most likely encounter whenever they get out (if they get out) amaze me.

Today's prayers:

Pray I don't get hurt in here. (name withheld)
Pray for my family because my father died last week and I loved him very much. (name withheld)
I am a homeless 17 yr old father of a 3 yr old and I'm stuck in jail. Pray God will turn my life around. (name withheld)

So, why don't you say a prayer for them, too? Thanks. Add me into the mix while you're on your knees.
