    dear supriya,

    it was a priviledge,and a relief to see your web-site and live video in mum. when i heard you had joined the military,i was so worried for your safety.it can be dangerous,when citizens of a country,are fighting to keep their country from being over-thrown,by an outside power.you look well and happy,and i am relieved that you have returned in a good condition. i liked your narrative in video,and to see you,and your comment about military food!(hehe)and the comments of stress.i understand.as the world turns,each of us deals with the coping everyday.that is our life.it seems as all of your family has moved th the south-west! i lived in mesa,arizona and also phoenix for quite a while,and fort huachuca is so close to mexico. i liked going to mexico,and meeting the people there,especially the small villages.i am well,as i hope that also for angela,james,shelvin, brittany,and your-self.i think intel has a new facility,in chandler,arizona.anyway,i believe you returned a whole person,thank god for that.

    god bless
