I stumbled across this very interesting weblog written by a female soldier in Iraq. It’s cool to find someone in an extraordinary situation doing something that many of us would have trouble imagining ourselves doing, and yet talking about life in a very ordinary way.
It reminds you that we’re all people–whether we’re soldiers or Iraqi civilians or people back home reading about stuff online. We all have similar hopes and dreams. We all have things that annoy us or make us afraid. We’re not all riding old ladies like donkeys or chopping people’s heads off. Most of us are just regular people trying to live our lives the best we can.
Plus she’s a Buffy fan! (Did I mention that I saw Sarah Michelle Gellar and her husband when I went to see “Hellboy”? They were sitting a few rows behind me.)
