Our son in the Army just emailed me an exchange between him and his brother , very upset, saying he was depressed thinking about the loss of his brothers & sisters from his life. I hardly know what to say to him, to help him understand and feel if not better, not be depressed, just accept what we have to accept. Our Army son is in Germany, the past year, the year before that he was in Iraq, and that puts him a zillion light years away from the kids who stayed home safely within the USA and have not had the decpline of being in the Military. Our Army son is right by the way, he has helped in a real way financially since his dad's company went bankrupt almost 2 years ago. We adopted 5 children but none of them are doing anything worth mentioning except for our Army child. The rest just went off into nothing jobs, no education, being alienated from us also, sadly. I really wonder what I can possible say to this son. Here is the email exchange that he sent to me. = =
Mom, and Dad,
This is what I delt with last night. He really had some nerve. Im not
sure if I was in the right also.

you feel like going off line and not saying any thing to me every time
i say some thing delete me so you and i don't have to deal with your
falseness of a true brother, grow up! and talk for your damn self but
when you do make sure there your own words... you want to be like that
then so be it. get over the pass every one lives to die anyways.....
you already know .... just so you know i would give my life to save
yours, nonetheless even so with all the shunning, but you want not to
be bothered by me, say it like a man!,, you have no idea what i have
been thru cuz you don't ask and i guess mom was right you have new
brothers and a new life and you really don't give a damn, and i could
be wasting me time, maybe i am saying this out of hurt,,, maybe i am
saying this cuz whatever you decide on doing i will always love you no
matter what you do or say!! miss you big bro.... wish you were not so
distanced from the truth dale!!

Stop being dumb. I have been busy picking up the pieces that everyone
left for me, I have been busy paying everyone bills that they left for
me, I have been busy supporting a house that I do not live in, I have
been busy doing my military work, I have been busy doing college work.
You think I am ignoring you out of spite? How dare you tell me to grow
up, you apparently know nothing about me. I have a job, I support mom
and dad, I pay for the house bills and I don't even live there! I have
a college degree. I have a name for myself, check yourself brother
before you use accusations.
I go offline because I am to busy to play games on FB, I have a life
other than this blasted social network that everyone loves to place
their whole life on. Ask yourself, have I ever said Im not talking to
you, that I and going to shun you? How dare you call me a fake
brother, I have picked up your slack ever since you lived at home, I
have defended you, asked mom to give you another chance in hopes of
change, I have asked you to do things so you would stay out of
trouble, you want me to talk for myself? Well now you have it! YOU
need to grow up, you need to stop the drinking, you need to stop the
lies, you need to get an education, for example: ''Cuz, Bra,'' are not
words, i is capitalized like this "I"
How much money have you put into the house? how many bills have you
paid out of kindness? Did
you get your own car? Are you in college?
Never tell me to grow up again, because you fail to realize that I am
a man already, not a child.
