A change of heart? (Please read)
February 24, 2009 by Heather
I was looking/hoping for some suggestions on what follows. For several reasons my second topic proposal has fell through. To replace it, I came up with a new idea last night and submitted it to Nathan and Dr. Moody
My first topic was the one I presented in class about parents being separated from their children on deployment. I was truly planning on doing this topic until I came up with my new idea. I was thinking about the old Marine Corps adage “every Marine is a rifleman.” It dawned on me how true this statement comes during a time of war. I know a fellow SSgt (another MECEP) who was in the 3D MAW Band; however, when the war in Iraq broke out he served in a security platoon, guarding Generals. My idea was to interview him about the transition, use photos of him in Iraq, get footage of the 3D MAW Band, and film him playing “The Marine’s Hymn.” My question is does this even sound like something someone would want to see? Unfortunately, I am a little biased towards my new idea since (1) I have a strong musical background and (2) I don’t have children, so I don’t fully relate to what a parent goes through. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
