just over six months since my brother has been deployed with no major injuries. until today. this morning my dad called me before work to let me know my brother is okay, but they have reported a casualty in his battalion. no details, the when, the where, the how, any other injuries either major or minor.
i'm so glad to hear that my brother is alive, safe, but at what cost? some young man from back home lost his life. less than a month after another young life was saved, on a more local level. and this hits close to home in more ways than one: my brother-safe, an unknown from back home-gone forever.

on my nano's 1st shuffle this morning---ingram hill, 'brother's keeper'
