It’s not hard to imagine “American Sniper” Chris Kyle as some kind of superman. He was a larger-than-life character who lived a life of action and incredible accomplishments. However, Kyle wasn’t just a famous warrior — he was of course a real person who felt fear … and love.
Kyle’s widow Taya recently opened up about that personal side of her relationship with her husband during an interview with People Magazine.
For example, she told the magazine what her husband had inscribed inside her wedding ring. It was seven simple but powerful words: “All of me. My love, my life.”
The widow also recalled strong memories of time spent with the deadliest sniper in American history.
“I miss those family dinners where we would joke with the kids,” she said.
“I miss the way he laughed at the littlest things with me and the way the kids and I couldn’t wait for him to come home from work. I miss how Chris changed the feeling in the room when he was in it,” she continued.
Apparently, the famous Navy SEAL also had a very romantic and tender side.
“One of the lines in our wedding vows was, ‘I will remind you who you are when you forget,’” Tara Kyle said (H/T IJ Review).
Tragically, Chris Kyle’s life is now gone, but his love for his family and his country remain an inspiration.
Many veterans have wounds that are physical … but some scars are emotional, also.
It’s important to remember that America’s combat veterans are neither monsters nor superheros. They are human beings who were asked to do difficult things under harsh circumstances.
