So Far From Home

So far from home...
Fighting for the freedom we take for granted
Trying to uproot the hatred terrorists have planted

So far from home...
Simple pleasures you now do without
The right to enjoy them is what this war is about

So far from home...
To ensure we keep the right to make choices
Because we all oppose a dictator trying to quell our voices

And so you are far from home...
On our behalf and we are grateful to you
We pray for your safe return
And success in every mission in support of the Red, White and Blue...

Safeguarding freedom and democracy that reign supreme and are treasured anew

So Far From Home

While taking night courses at the university, I met a fellow student who is also in the US Air Force. Before the semester ended, he was suddenly deployed to Saudi Arabia. We kept in touch via email. After an on-line chat about what it's like to serve there, the words for "So Far From Home" invaded my thoughts demanding to be written down. My friend, CJ, is currently stationed in North Carolina.
