When are you coming home?

Accompanied by her mom on the piano, six year-old Heather Martin sings in her rural Oklahoma church a song written by her mom about her brother Shaun who is serving in Iraq. Hat tip to Donald Sensing.



UPDATE: The power in this song, like the WW II classic "I'll be home for Christmas", is an undergirding sense of worthwhile sacrifice and familial love. Unspoken is the real fear that he may be coming home in a casket.

With recent Congressional action, Shaun and other American troops may be coming home soon(er).

But - to what end?
