Ben Stein is so honest and directly eloquent.
"...we could live without the stock market, could get on without Hollywood or new cars, but could not last a week without our armed forces and the armed forces could not last a week without the military family. "To most," I said, "the war on terrorism is an abstraction. But there is blood all over this room."
"Yet, they have something the rest of us rarely have: meaning. They know why God put them on earth, why they live and suffer. They never doubt their worth."
Which is why I do what I do, to share that with the protectors. Thank you Mr. Stein.
