Sith Creed

"Peace is a lie. There is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken."

A side I should take

Pendulum- Sounds of Life

This song is giving the motivation to explore Charlotte tonight. I just finished packing my luggage (don't want to procrastinate on that). As the days get closer to me hopping onto the plane and flying off on my adventure, my heart races me to excitement and anxiousness.

Most people ask me why I am going to Georgia. Most don't even know where in the world it is. I usually have to add "the country of" in front of it as to not confuse it with the U.S. Georgia. But my answer is mostly the same: I am going to visit with some of the Georgian Army soldiers I met while in Afghanistan. I am going as a way of saying "Thanks". Thanks for going somewhere to risk your lives helping the U.S. in a major fight. They didn't have to go there or be there. And I am glad they did. Their help made it possible for my unit's mission to be completed.

I met some wonderful people while there sitting up all night trying to find a way to communicate with someone who doesn't even speak English. Hand signals and broken sign language made this trip possible and I am grateful.
