Then this....’He was a martyr for us the day he left home to join militancy’, says suicide bomber’s father. In the same breath, equates his ‘grief and loss’ to that of families of 40 CRPF soldiershttps://t.co/vtTO7Cy4Yt
This was written in the aftermath of the Nagrota attack in 2016 by @realkaypius ,a Navy veteran. Rings true today too.😐 The public ‘concern ‘ lasts a few days. And then it’s all back to ‘normal’ once the news cycle ends. It’s the families who have to live with this loss forever.
“If you respect the soldier, ask yourself what you have done for their families after they made the ultimate sacrifice. Do you know of even ONE such family to whose welfare you have committed even a SINGLE day?“ @realkaypius
Attack on CRPF personnel in Pulwama is despicable. I strongly condemn this dastardly attack. The sacrifices of our brave security personnel shall not go in vain. The entire nation stands shoulder to shoulder with the families of the brave martyrs. May the injured recover quickly.
To my dear friend, Prime Minister of India @narendramodi, we stand with you, the security forces and the people of India following this heinous terrorist attack. We send our condolences to the families of the victims.
Tomorrow’s elections might be the most important of our lifetimes. The health care of millions is on the ballot. Making sure working families get a fair shake is on the ballot. The character of our country is on the ballot.
To all our veterans and your families: thank you. There's no tribute that can truly match the magnitude of your service and sacrifice. But all of us can do our best to live up to the American values of service, responsibility, generosity, and citizenship that you helped defend.
