So, those of you who don't know, my good friend Robin is over in Afghanistan with the Canadian troops, right there in Kandahar. I didn't think much of it at first, but lately as it's heated up I'm really getting a bit scared. Well not scared so much as concerned. Man, that would suck if he died. Especially for Lindsay [his fiancee, and I'm in the wedding party].
Biggest thing was when Costall died during the night fight. Hearing he was a Thunder Bay native... well in the paper they said "thunder bay native dies in afghanistan". Man, my heart dropped. Then I remembered he was off touring with his fiancee at the time. He was given some leave time and she went over and they toured Europe for a bit.
Now, there's the bomb blast [click to read more]. 4 were killed. They gave 3 of the names, but are withholding the 4th name. Why? I completely understand for those loved ones... but... man, what if it's him? They're just waiting to get a hold of her to tell her first before the rest of the world. Shitty deal man. I hope you're safe Rob.
