Our hearts are with them...

Terrible news this morning with the death of three Australian soldiers and wounding of seven more at the hands of an Afghan National Soldier.

My thoughts and prayers are with the families and those that have been severely wounded.

Its the news no military spouse, parent, sibling or child ever wants to get.  The possibility that is best not thought about.  

Days like today we are reminded that our service men and women are the true heroes not the movie stars, music performers and sports people the media tries to label as such.  I have not seen a single member of the latter category put their lives on the line for their country.

God bless our Diggers.


  1. May they rest in peace, and may the wounded recover rapidly and fully.

    Between that incident and the major NATO convoy bombing it was very tough week for the soldiers in Afghanistan. The families are in our prayers.

  2. Thanks for this, it's such a worry, to have your life ended that way in war, it's murder. My husband is constantly in my thoughts, this should be his last deployment, love Posie
