    Default Should Have Been 40 Today

    Sean (etc2na) should have turned 40 today. I know some of you are tired of me posting about him, but on days like this I just need to get it out a little. I'm still so angry about how he died.

    God rest you son. You were and always will be my hero.

    Love you, Dad

    Muley, some of us like seeing you post about your son; it reminds us of the sacrifices made, so we can live in relative comfort. Keep um coming.

    Very appropriate so close after Veterans Day. Come down to my fire pit; we'll toast ETC2NA any time you're ready. Happy Birthday, Sean.

    It still doesn't seem real. I can't imagine how you must feel. If posting helps you, post away sir.

    It took 20 years for me to deal with the loss of my father. I have heard that losing a son or daughter is even harder.

    It just takes time.

    I can't explain why but even though I have only met a few of you, opening up to JHO members about life changing events has helped me to get through more than once. This is truly one of the more positive traits of this site. I believe it is a form of therapy, I can't tell you how many times I felt alone and was lifted up by the positive comments, compassion and insight from members here. Happy Birthday to Sean and as always you will forever be in my thoughts and prayers Muley, never get tired of hearing about your wonderful son, God bless.

    Good one KTKT70! Way to keep the memory of Sean alive. True heroes are few and far between, many in our nation have forgotten the true definition of "Hero". Thoughts are with you this week MULEY51.

    It's not something you ever get over...and if you did it would mean something was wrong with you. Parents should not outlive their kid. Especially when you know the cause was negligence and avoidable. No apologies necessary...I think we all grieve with you. Our military families represent the best of us as a nation. I pray you will feel God's hand on your shoulder.
    Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

    The U.S. city with the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, Washington, D.C., has the highest murder rate at 24 per 100,000. The state with the most unrestrictive gun regulations, Vermont, has the lowest murder rate at 0.48 per 100,000.

    Muley,
    After reading your original post I read some of your son's last posts. It filled me with admiration of Sean along with sadness for the people he touched in his life.
    Thank you for posting Sean's birthday.

    Just happened to be scrolling by and noticed people had commented recently. I'm blessed to know that Dad impacted so many people and there are still those thinking about him. Thank you guys for your kind words about him. He truly was an amazing man.
