What he didn't realize was that her name and mine were the same, but I was not the sister he thought he was writing to. I answered that letter and told him that I would be delighted to write to him, keep him and his buddies in my prayers and remember their sacrifices while they helped safeguard my freedom. I asked if he had a better email address for his sister, and let him know a little bit about me.
We've since been writing back and forth. It's been almost like having another son. His sister even sent me an email. I got a note from him tonight. I want to share part of it with you... "
He went on to let me to know how much all of them appreciate the notes and letters people send. It made me start thinking about wrong numbers and misdirected email. How easy it would have been to just throw it out. I'm so very glad I didn't.
