A day of celebration

Yesterday I received the greatest news, my son John who was training at Fort Bliss, Texas, getting ready to go to Iraq, is being sent home Thursday due to a technicality. Since he served nine months in Egypt two years ago, they cannot force him to serve another full tour in Iraq with his new unit which was not in Egypt. So he gets to go home to his wife and get on with his life which will hopefully include going back to college. This is just wonderful. A burden has been lifted from my heart. Of course, I am still concerned for all those who are affected by this terrible war. May wars cease to be a part of our lives.

Today we also celebrate the appearance day of Sri Krishna who brought unimaginable grace, beauty and love to our world. May we relish his nectarean pastimes and devote ourselves to his service. Blessings to all.
