"It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting."
Maybe I should just not assume things are going to go as planned. I received Tyler's new address in the letter he sent me last week. The letter was pretty normal until he mentioned how things are heating up in Syria and that he is terrified about going over there and possibly fighting. Now, I don't get scared easily. Or at least in the long term. Sure, I hate spiders, thunderstorms, and horror movies, but those all go away almost as quick as they came. The thought of Tyler going overseas was something I just casually accepted but never really thought about it. Hearing that he might have to fight over there puts the fear of God into me and it's not something that'll just go away. I knew what I was getting myself into, dating a Marine, but I don't think it ever crossed my mind it would be like this. I simply told him that I'd rather talk about that kind of stuff in person, but it is what it is.
