My husband was watching "Saving Private Ryan" this weekend. I can only guess it was programed to connect with the observance of Veteran's Day. I watched until I saw the mother standing at her kitchen window watching the government car pull up to her front door. She walks out the door and knows what it means. She folds and crumbles to the ground and I felt her pain. Though a movie, the story is true. So, today I remember all children who have died in war and whose mothers hold them in their hearts this day.
