It was a year ago today that I learned of losing Nicholas, a nephew serving in the Army in Afghanistan. I didn't really lose my nephew, it just seems that the Nation has taken him to be one of their heroes.
Somehow that is not enough consolation, I wish I could have some time with Nicholas now, as I frittered away my chance and regret it deeply.
Nicholas taught me a few things through this last year.
1. Family is important.
2. Do not hesitate.
3. How wonderful Nicholas's father is, which makes me appreciate my father more realistically.
