My son(10 years young) and I were watching Forrest Gump, the movie arrived at the point where Forrest was in the army. My son asked me if I ever had to fight in a war. I said “No, I was in the service in the mid-seventies, relatively peaceful.
I proceeded to tell him that a lot of good young men died in war. He then about broke my heart when he said, ” I’m glad you didn’t have to die in a war Dada’ because then I wouldn’t be here.” “I told him that God’s will is always being done in men’s lives.”
