Now Playing: The Wallflowers-From the bottom of my heart
So, I was on my way to work this morning, grinching about the laundry and the housework and a jackass who can never make an appointment, follow a schedule or read a calendar when my heart was broken and I was so humbled, I couldn't talk or move or even see through my stinging eyes. I heard one report after another, Sergeant Maupin's body was found in Baghdad. It was confirmed by DNA, Sergeant Maupin had been recovered. Sergeant Maupin's status was changed from missing/captured to deceased. This boy for whom we'd searched four years, soldiers died searching, soldiers bled searching and we found him, not the way anyone hoped but we found him.
I cried. Then I threw up. I lost my temper and cried again. I went home. I apologized to my children and even to my jackass and cried some more.
