That damn text message.

SpouseBuzz had the most comments on the KIA notification texting situation, and buried in those comments were some words from some of the wife's family. I think it is only fair to share this article since I shared the other.

For me, it goes back to someone jumping on the chance to contact the wife as soon as possible. If you aren't close, if you aren't friends- just wait, but do send something a few days after. The people closest to her will take care of her immediate needs. It was crazy who came out of the wood-work within minutes of finding out about my husband's injuries. But I will tell you, the support and love we received from strangers, from other wives and families, is what keeps my faith in humanity. Be a part of that for someone else if you're given the chance. There is a time and a place for anyone to say something kind and supportive, and there's no reason that adults shouldn't know theirs.

God bless them all.


  1. Wow, and still remained so humble... I don't know where the strength comes from in these situations. Amazing.

  2. I read about this fiasco when it first took place and I'm happy to hear that the family hasn't focused on their anger towards someone else who very selfishly told them what happened when they had no business doing it. The poor family is suffering enough.

    Honestly, I don't know if I would have the strength to be like they are. I'm so honored to be a part of a community of so much strength :)
