The local news did a story tonight on a soldier that has a blog. They said he has this blog to let his friends and family know that he is alive and OK, since he can't call, write, or e-mail each of them every day. It is very interesting reading, especially the bottom of the first page that has an entry titled "I wasn't gonna post about this at first, but...".
This guy has a blog to let his family know he isn't dead, and I just complain about Wal-Mart clerks. It sure puts things in perspective.
