Is Ignorance Bliss?
DH and I were visiting with our church leader tonight. The Bishop asked of there was anything he could do for our family. DH mentions he will be deploying to Afghanistan next summer. The Bishop asks, "With your family?" (What?) We were confused at the thought? Did he really think the military sends families to the battle fields? DH said, "No. We're at war." That resulted in big eyes and a surprised look. We were a little insulted that he was ... is ignorant even the right word? Does he not watch the news or see any overage from Iraq or Afghanistan?
