    Thanks to all of those who have served or are currently serving in the military. Thank you Ms. Jeannie for putting this up. It gave me goosebumps and brought a tear to my eye.

    I don’t mean to be a bummer, but that video really missed the mark. All I could think was that woman really needs some serious therapy to get over the death of a loved one instead of PRETENDING HE IS STILL ALIVE. And apparently teaching her daughter that he is still alive and can hear her letters. Who made this?

    I am the daughter of a career Marine who died and I honor his memory every day–but not by pretending he is still there.

    My thanks to all the armed forces.

    Sacrificing one’s life is undoubtedly the greatest sacrifice of all. And the video was very touching. But I want to stress that a bereaved child should also be given the chance to mourn his or her father/mother without constant pressure to be brave. A kid should be allowed to be angry, sad and devastated, to voice his/her feelings and have them validated. As grown-ups we may have chosen sacrifice, but our children didn’t, they have to live with the choices we make.

    @grumpy_otter

    I disagree, she is writing letters to make it feel like he is still with her. If she wasn’t moving on with her life then therapy is needed.

    I write letters to my grandparents who passed away. I do it when I really miss them and wish I could talk to them. It is comforting.
