Letters From Home

I skipped yesterdays challenge (the first one out of 16) because it was fan-fic. I’m not even sure I really know what that is so I couldn’t do it justice so you got my spin cycle instead! Day 16 is a song that makes me cry or almost cry. Well the song that I kept going back to when thinking about it was John Michael Montgomery’s “Letters From Home.” I’m not a political person so I am definitely not going into the we should or shouldn’t be at war, or any of that, but every time I hear this song it strikes something inside of me and I cry. Even when listening to it at work just now I got tears in my eyes and goosebumps. The part I think that gets me the most is the “letter” he gets from his dad where it says he’s proud of him and that no one says anything because there isn’t anything funny when a soldier cries. I have a really vivid imagination (sometimes) and when I hear this song I can just picture it in my head, a group of soldiers sitting around and when he reads the letter he has to hold back the tears and everyone just kind of looks away because they all know if they got something similar they would be feeling/acting the same way. So, there’s a song that makes me cry. If you want to listen to it, here is a clip to YouTube. It’s not the actual music video, but it puts the lyrics up there so you can see it while he sings it. This was just the first version I found. I hope you enjoy it and you might need some tissues!

I have never heard that song, thanks for sharing it with me.

My tear jearker song is "Don't take the girl" I can't think who sings it right now, it is nearly 3 in the morning!
