Not so much like the movies...

Well today I got to witness probably one of the saddest things I have ever seen in real life. You know how in the movies, when someone's husband or child or boyfriend dies in the military, someone from the military shows up to tell their loved ones they have passed in duty? I mean it is always sad in the movies when you watch it, they play some background music that fits the mood, everything.... well it is a lot worse to witness in real life.
Today at work multiple men in Uniform walked into our office today. At first I thought they were here for security stuff with Laura Bush coming to the Library on Monday... but I was wrong. They came to tell someone who works here at the library that her son had died. Lets just say the place filled with some awkward air. I was thinking how in the movies when the sad music is cued it would have been a lot better then the silence that you really experience. What a absolutely horrible duty to have to come into people lives, like at work and at their homes and tell them their child has died. It was the saddest thing I have ever seen, and really nothing like the movies.
