“I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else…”

I didn’t get around to reading Daniel Hennninger’s weekly Wall Street Journal Wonder Land column until yesterday, but as always it’s a good one: “Taking sides.” It has one paragraph that I have not been able to get out of my mind: “A few nights ago, during that high sandstorm [referred to earlier in the column], an embedded TV reporter stood over a soldier who was lying on his stomach, exposed to the wind and grit, holding his rifle and staring through goggles into nothing. The reporter said, ‘What do you think of being here in conditions like this.’ The soldier said: ‘I love it, sir. I truly do. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else right now.’”
