Will Terrorists Kill American Soldier?

by Maxi Malone

The name and rank are clearly visible on a Taliban web site…

BoweHe is Private 1st Class Bowe Bergdahl, a twenty-three-year old Army paratrooper from Idaho. It shakes you up a bit to learn that he joined the service just a year ago and was captured on his first deployment to Afghanistan.

There is a video shown on a Taliban web site where Bowe looked fine and healthy … so far. He obviously was forced to repeat the words of his captors—then uttered these heartfelt words of his own:

“I have my girlfriend, I have my grandma and my grandpas. I have a very, very good family that I love back home in America. And I miss them every day when I am gone. I miss them and I’m afraid that I might not ever see them again and that I’ll never be able to tell them that I love them again and I’ll never be able to hug them.”

As a grandmother, his words slammed me right in the heart. We must cherish our role as grandparents … we never know how much it means to our grandchildren.

Hopefully, that love will carry Bowe home.
