Pol Light Moment #75 took place on October 1, 2014, when Hillary Clinton spoke in New York at an event for TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) and comforted military families who had lost loved ones. Hillary Clinton was speaking at the event because she received the Lifetime Service Award from the group. Hillary Clinton served as the First Lady from 1993-2001, when her husband Bill Clinton was President. She has also served as a U.S. Senator from New York and Secretary of State.
Hillary Clinton had the opportunity to listen to the stories of the surviving family members of United States military and during her speech she said,
At a time when sometimes we seem divided and people seem to be arguing all the time we really have to take stock of how blessed we are and grateful for the men and women who serve us and be thankful that we have through all of our ups and downs and our challenges continues to stand for the values that unite us: freedom and democracy and opportunity and by supporting you all who will serve in the future--Hillary Clinton (ABC News, October 1, 2014).
