It’s something about their eyes – and not only that they are reading.
It’s something about the main celebration – the longest sequence – of the military, armed forces, police and all in law enforcement, all in uniform and all around the world.
It’s something about soldiers being shown when the word “peace” is mentioned.
It’s something about that flag on his lapel and the American flag-coloured outfit.
It’s something about the underlying theme of goodness versus evil – America represented by the Red Cross.
It’s something about giving aid rather than creating the good society where nobody needs aid.
It’s something about not saying anything about the future but seeing only six days ahead, visionlessly.
It’s something about these two having no contact with each other, joylessly.
It’s something about their fixed, starry gaze that reveals that they don’t speak from their hearts but perform their role.
Yes, what is that something?
See and listen here to The First Lady’s speech to the armed forces.
