Today is Bowe’s 28th birthday. While birthdays are typically a cause for celebration, the thought that Bowe has now seen five birthdays come and go while in captivity is heartbreaking. This is why today, Bowe’s birthday, is a day of solemness. We reflect on it in our own way and it motivates us all differently for different reasons. But in the end what we all want, what we pray for, is that Bowe will soon return home… to his family, to the place that is safe and familiar.
Maybe today we can all tell somebody that a friend who you’ve never met is having a birthday, that his name is Bowe Bergdahl. Tell them about Bowe and ask them to tell his story too. Today give Bowe the gift of your time. Dear Bowe Supporters, it’s YOU who stand in the gap for Bowe until he comes home. We are all waiting and advocating for Bowe until we can celebrate his homecoming.
Don’t forget that you can leave a message of support for Bowe and his family by signing the Guest Book here on supportbowe.org. The Guest Book entries are being saved so that when Bowe gets home, they’ll always be there for him to read. Follow this LINK to the Guest Book if you’d like to add your name to it.
