Letter Received

**I wish that I had THAT telegram....the one she received on THAT day.  The one that read "The secretary of war desires me to express his deep regret that..."  

But I don't have that telegram and I sometimes wonder what she did with it.  I sometimes wonder what the emotions were that ran through her as she read the news that her husband of 4 months was now missing in action thousands of miles away, in a country that was being overrun by a man who was obsessed with wiping out an entire group of people.

No, I don't have THAT telegram, but I do have this letter that she received soon after...I'll simply let it speak for itself.
