Two sad notes to begin this Memorial Day weekend...
I always feel sorrow for every American who pays the ultimate sacrifice in the service of our country. In this case, it strikes closer to home because it's a fellow submarine officer. LT Jeff Ammon was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. For more details, Bubblehead has more info and links to news articles.
On another sad note, I terrifies me to even contemplate the emotional trauma of losing a child. Steven Curtis Chapman is one of our favorite contemporary Christian artists. His 5 year old daughter, Maria, was accidentally killed in their own driveway on Wednesday. There's more info on the KLOVE website.
My sincerest condolences and heartfelt prayers go to the families of both Jeff Ammon and Maria Chapman.
