In this moment...

I am fine. I am sitting at my computer. I have just completed a 10K run, after a wonderful 6:30 a.m. meeting. I am warm and comfortable. But I got home and turned on the TV, and did just what my son has told me not to do. I watched CNN - just for a minute. The minute was long enough to hear that there is a helicopter down in Iraq. He also told me how many Chinooks there are in Iraq, in case I ever hear something like that (of course, at this moment, I do not remember how many there are).

How do you pray in a case like this? Please Dear Lord, let it not be MY son? Let it be someone else's son? I can't seem to wrap my mind around a prayer like that.

So let me just ask for God's Grace for all of his children, including mine.

"...God's Grace for all of his children, including mine."

This is an awesome way to go about it.
I like your son's advice of not tuning in CNN.

God bless you and your son. :)
