I have spent the better part of the last fourteen months away from the family I adore.
I have endured a summer of 130 degree plus weather occasionally complimented by scorching winds and choking dust.
I have awoken to the sound of mortar rounds impacting and live with the constant awareness that there are evil men nearby that want to bring me harm.
But due to the wonders of modern technology I was able to watch a glorious event tonight, and even if it was only for a few hours...all was well with the world.
Texas Longhorns beat Oklahoma 45 - 12
