Chris Kyle has been a polarizing individual in popular and social media. Some have glamorized and idealized him. While others have reviled and vilified him.
I respect Chris Kyle, because he was willing to risk his own life in order to protect our country. I respect him for being a Navy Seal. I also respect his ability to compartmentalize his military job and his civilian life, which allowed him to function and succeed on the battlefield, in the civilian workforce, and as a family man.
We live in a world that requires people like Chris Kyle to protect us from those who want to do us harm. I wish we could find another way, but it’s not always possible. We live in a world that needs people like Chris Kyle and I respect him for filling that need.
I enjoyed reading the biography of Chris Kyle. He was an American hero and his life story is inspirational.
Memorial Day Poem by Will Carleton
Over all our happy country
over all our Nation spread,
is a band of noble heroes
is our Army of the Dead.
