People always tell me that it must be so hard to have my dad away from my family. I just look at them and say Yeah… Yeah, it is. And it is. It sucks a lot. But you know what, watching him walk away isn’t like it is for other people. I’ve never had to watch him walk out of my life, just out of my sight. I’ve never had to watch him stop loving me. I’ve never had to hate him. Never wondered if he hated me, my mom, or my brother. Just watched him walk away from us, to make this country better- for us. I’ve never had to watch my dad walk away from honor, or responsibility, or love. When he walks away from us, he’s always walking towards those things.
I appreciate the support, but the ones that need it, are the ones that no one wants to talk to about it.
that’s too personal. It’s none of our business.
