Please no. Please God no. I'm not normally a praying man, but I'm praying please don't let it be true. Why would you do this to me? I've been good! I've followed your commandments. Why my son? Why???!!!

Aggressiveness - Check
Paranoia - Check
Territorial - Check

The three big signs that were read out over the loudspeaker, and my son meets them all. What did I do to deserve this? Did I wrong you in some way? Are me and my wife not worthy? I've done everything to raise my son the right way, and now you're going to take him away? He's my only kid, he's my joy in life, and now I'm supposed to just report him to the military?

What kind of God are you? At church, they talk about a loving and kind God! How is this kind? How is this loving? You brought me all this joy, and now you're taking him away? For heaven's sakes, his birthday is in 5 days! He's not even one yet!'s not fair. I refuse! I will not turn my son over! If they want him, they're going to have to kill me first. I WILL not turn my son over to the fucking military!

Maybe I'll just end it all and make it easier on everyone.
