Father-daugther relationships are precious. Individually, they are fragile beings, each with their own doubts and insecurities. At the same time, they are strong and resilient. A father going to war, carrying the weight of missing his family. An internal war is simultaneously raging as he fears being seen as abandoning. Fighting the enemy, but also fighting himself. His little girl back at home yearns to be held in his arms. Everything he does, every day he fights, he does it in hopes of coming home to her.
It’s not about glamorizing a story or an image. It’s not about minimizing what is shared. It’s all about the raw, unfiltered truth. It’s about being uncomfortable.
Until next time,
