She explained that being a patriotic citizen and upholding the ideals these heroes fought for, and lessons they aimed to teach with their actions, is one way to respect them. According to her:

"We can honor our fallen soldiers by living everyday, the values...to uphold the principles that they held dear. We then give meaning and purpose to their sacrifices."

She reflected on the war tales her soldier father often told her at dinner tables. The 61-year-old stated that she's a proud citizen who loves her country and the American ideals of liberty and equality.
