June 19th, 2004...

today my second cousin graduates college
today my sister turns 25
today my cousin, who just got married two weeks ago, is being shipped off to Iraq
today his sister turns 21

I don't know why certain dates tend to serve as intersection points for important events, but it seems to be one of those days. I'm going to my second cousin's graduation party a few hours away from here. Before that I'll probably give my sister a call and wish her a happy birthday.

My cousin who's in the US Army got married the weekend before last. About a week before the ceremony, he got the order to be reassigned to Iraq. Today is the date he is transported over there. He was forbidden to fly anywhere between then and now, so he had to cancel his honeymoon plans. His new wife has two kids who he won't see for at least a year.
