Today is Friday and that means it's Freaky Friday. If you need to know more about this journal writing challenge please read Freaky Friday #1.
Private Jake Kovco was the first Aussie killed during recent clashes in Iraq*. Read more about the no cover up claims, investigations into his death and how his body was lost returning to Australia for burial.
For this journal writing challenge write as if you were a member of the private's family. Of course Jake's death is tragic and I hope we don't see many more families suffer such losses. I'm challenging you to focus on the bungle over losing the body of an honoured soldier. How does this make you feel? Write as if you are close enough to know him well. You could even write as if Jake was a friend or fellow soldier fighting alongside you. Investigate your emotions in this journal writing challenge.
