The Love Letter Campaign: The soft hearted man who grieves for those who have passed because of him


My Sweet Love,

You have been through so much. I know that you grieve over the lives you have taken. You protected us from the bad when we could not do it ourselves. You risked your sanity to make sure we were all safe. My heart aches for you everyday. My mind goes a million miles an hour to try to help you. I love you for all that you have done and will do for us. Your struggles are my struggles, your pain is my pain, your life is my life. I am proud to call you mine and mine only!! My love for you gets stronger and stronger as each day passes. The only thing I can say now is Please come back to me... Please seek help that you need!! I cry everyday hoping that today is the day that I have my Ryan back. I love you with all my heart soul and mind!!! The reason I know that you are a good man is that you feel bad about what you had to do. That's what makes you the best man in the world to me and everyone you served for. I am not good with words my dear, but believe me when I say this too you, I LOVE YOU!!! 
Love,
Shannon


This blog post is part of The Love Letter Campaign... a project started by FamilyOfaVet.com to encourage those who love a hero to write a letter sharing their story (where they started, what they've faced together, and why their love endures). It's not just for spouses, but also for parents, siblings, caregivers, and friends. It's about telling the "rest" of our stories... stories that continue despite PTSD, TBI, and the challenges of life after combat. To share your love letter or find out more about the campaign, visit http://www.familyofavet.com/love_letters.html.
