This is one of those photos that say a million words. Four year old Paige Bennethum is seen in the photo above, holding her daddy's hand, refusing to let go as he prepares for his leave to Iraq. I saw this photo on Parent Dish and it almost made me tear as I read the article.
"Army Reserve Staff Sgt. Brett Bennethum was preparing to depart from Fort Dix, N.J., for Iraq, leaving behind his pregnant wife and two little girls. His family was there to see him off. His commanding officer didn't have the heart to tell Paige she had to let go of her daddy.
"I didn't want to let go of him," she told NBC Philadelphia."
