Coming Home

A friend of mine is coming home from Iraq. OK, calling him my friend overstates our relationship. We played hockey together in middle school, and hung out together sometimes in highschool, and intermittently since. We get along, but we're not particularly close. That said, he's a good guy, and I'm glad he's going to be getting home soon.

He's also one of the most gifted writers I know. He's been keeping a blog about his time in Iraq, and I've got it linked on the sidebar:

I mention it mostly because his last post from Iraq just went up. It's a good piece of writing about his thoughts, his experience, and the uncertainty of change--even change that's been awaited for 18 months.

It's worth a read. At least it was for me. This is the permalink: Closure
