Girl in Bosnia

It was then that I noticed this little girl about eleven years old trailing us at a safe distance.  She wore a yellow head tie on her head, a pretty flowered colored skirt and a pink shirt. She didn't look to dirty so I figured she must not be homeless. At any rate she kept following us everytime we stopped to look at something or take pictures, she would pause too.  I took the moment and managed to get a picture of her. She even smiled at me.  I got to thinking how lucky we were as Americans living free.

This Picture is in Bosnia, when I saw the little girl.


That Deployment left me with a deep sense of loss... I was sexually harassed.  I was afraid that I would die at the hands of a land mine... placed in the roads to hurt soldiers.  I had nightmares because we carried our weapons and gas masks... and hoped I would never have to use it... Units lost soldiers. To suicide... and land mines...


Twenty years later I'm under the care of a team of psychiatrics... psychologists... for PTSD...


For the love of country I remain hopeful.
