Tomas Youngis "ready to go" as he puts it. After nine years of suffering and with his body quickly deteriorating he has decided to end his struggle.

Young, 33, was paralyzed from the chest down by a sniper's bullet in a battle in Sadr City, Iraq on April 4, 2004, less than a week after he got to the country. He had joined the Army just two days after September 11, 2001 and assumed he would be sent to Afghanistan. Now nine years after that battle he is choosing to end his suffering. He is in hospice care and getting ready to die.

"I just decided that I was tired of seeing my body deteriorate and I want to go before it's too late," Young said in phone interview with ABC News from his home in Kansas City, Mo. "I've been doing this for the past nine years now…and I finally felt helpless every day and a burden to the people who take care of me and that's why I want to go."

I can't imagine being paralyzed for 9 years and I can't imagine having suicidal "thoughts" although, I will say, I am not above them. But to actually do it is another story. His soul is in despair. We must pray for the grace of God to touch him and give him hope. So sad...

This is a tough one. We need to pray for his soul as well as for the ability to forgive.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our tresspasses as we forgive those who tresspass against us. And lead us not into tempation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory, now and forever, Amen
