So, I have seen different reports about the helicopter that was shot down yesterday – the number of victims and their exact affiliation vary from story to story. While the details are important, the most important thing to me is to remember that we didn’t just lose (25? 30?) Americans, we lost some of the bravest and boldest among us. These soldiers *are the reason* why I can spend a lazy Sunday at home, relaxing with my boyfriend, making plans for the future.
