Getting a little perspective

This image was posted on Facebook by a friend of a friend with reference to something, I can't remember what. It hit me between the eyes immediately and had stayed with me through the day,

I need to get a little perspective:
I am choosing to go to Zambia.
I am away for a mere 11 days.
I will have a lot of fun.
No one at home needs to fear for my safety.

Men and women in the armed forces are away for months at a time, this boy waited over 200 days to hug his mum. I am going to suck it up a bit, or at least I'm going to try.
