Recently my cousin messaged me, I would die if my son will be in the military. How can you live with the fear that any moment he could be sent to a war? I couldn’t do it .. I would have done all I could to stop him from going in the military, and for that I admire you.
My answer to her was…I will never forget how my heart dropped when my son came to tell me he wanted to join the military. I asked him if he was sure and if that’s what he wanted then.. I will support his decision 100%. He explained his reasons and I noticed he had really thought it over and was sure of his decision. I knew if he saw that his decision was breaking my heart he wouldn’t go through with it. The next few months were emotionally torturing and that’s when my silent tears began. The day came when we had to drive him so he could begin his journey. On my way to drop him off, I prayed for strength. The time to say our goodbyes came, he said bye to my daughter, my boyfriend and then me. That hug almost made me break down, as I hugged him in my head I scream to God for strength and to please help me hold my tears. As we pull away I saw his tears, I took a deep breath and said "Hey, don’t cry you see me I'm strong and time will fly, we will see each other soon." He cracked a smirked and said "true," took a deep breath and walked away. I held my tears in till I got in my car, and I just let it out. I was not seeing my son leaving but one of my best friends.
I'm very proud of him and his achievements so far in his military journey, but I couldn’t be selfish. A mother or any parent must let their child free and let them spread their wings. My faith gives me strength and yes I'm hurting but I have faith that the Lord and my grandmother are watching over him and keeping him safe. Only I know how many silent tears I've shed.

On today's Show I am sharing a small part of Bear Grylls book "Mud, Sweat and Tears."
Here are some quotes from this amazing book:
“Never depend on those luck moments – they are gifts – but instead always build your own back-up plan.”
“You can't become a decent horseman until you fall off and get up again, a good number of times.
There's life in a nutshell.”
“Time and experience have taught me that fame and money very rarely go to the worthy, by the way - hence we shouldn't ever be too impressed by either of those impostors. Value folk for who they are, how they live and what they give - that's a much better benchmark.”
“Many people find it hard to understand what it is about a mountain that draws men and women to risk their lives on her freezing, icy faces - all for a chance at that single, solitary moment on the top. It can be hard to explain. But I also relate to the quote that says, Iif you have to ask, you will never understand.”
“To me, my Christian faith is all about being held, comforted, forgiven, strengthened, and loved--yet somehow that message gets lost on most of us, and we tend only to remember the religious nutters or the God of endless school assemblies. This is no one's fault, it is just life. Our job is to stay open and gentle, so we can hear the knocking on the door of our heart when it comes. The irony is that I never meet anyone who doesn't want to be loved or held or forgiven. Yet I meet a lot of folk who hate religion. And I so sympathize. But so did Jesus. In fact, He didn't just sympathize, He went much further. It seems more like this Jesus came to destroy religion and to bring life.”
“If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”

In observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month we will be talking Maxine Browne, author of "Years of Tears". We will talk to about what influenced her to write this book, what is domestic violence and how can it be prevented. Don't miss the "Artist Spotlight" featuring C.J. Luckey.
We're dealing with a generation of children who are coming from broken homes, dysfunctional families, abuse, and neglect that has created what we call "Tattoo Tears". You may wonder why they act out the way they do and why they appear to carry so much anger that you can't seem to understand. You'll be surprised to know that many of them don't even understand what's going on with themselves. Join us as we attempt to dissect the war going on within and what is truly behing these tears of anger, bitterness, and resentment. This is a show you truly don't want to miss.
"Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people! Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men. And they bend their tongues like bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth;......"
