By Constituting America Founder & Co-chair Janine Turner
this Memorial Day weekend, I think it is appropriate to truly
contemplate and think about the soldiers and families who have
sacrificed their lives and loved ones, and given their time and
dedication to our country.
Sometimes it is
beyond reach to put ourselves in someone else's shoes and feel, to the
most heightened sense, what it would be like to say goodbye to our loved
ones for perhaps the last time. Do we take the time to feel empathy for
the soldier who has to walk away from his family - mother, father,
wife, husband, daughter, son - to be potentially killed out in the field
- to die away from family - in perhaps some distant land, in enemy
territory, on foreign soil? How frightening this would be.
is difficult in our daily lives that are hectic with work, pressures,
commitments and family responsibilities to really pause to think about
the sacrifice our men and women in uniform have made and are making to
protect us. Our men and women in uniform were and are the brave, the
special, the few and the truly great patriots. Without these soldiers,
we, America and Americans, would not be here - plain and simple. The air
we breathe, the land we walk, the sky we sketch, the country we call
home, is because of the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform.
