Why did you have an actress, Selma Blair, portray the wife, Mrs. Cain, of a soldier who died in Afghanistan???
I can’t believe that you Hollywoodized a woman and children! It devalues the meaning of his death.
Also, I didn’t have Selma Blair read the letter. PBS and The National Memorial Concert did. You can take your complaint and negative attitude somewhere else.
I believe his widow would disagree with you. Selma Blair did a wonderful job reading that letter and to my understanding – actors have always read the letters on the program. It is an honor to read them.
I only caught the ending , it was very moving and I am a Widow , not a WAR widow but everything she said is everything I too have felt, I would like to see a replay if anyone has a link to Selma speech please .. I need to blast it to so many people who need to hear the message
PBS will rebroadcast the concert tonight. Check your local listings for the time. I will be sure to post any video that becomes public, so check back here!
Miss Blair, you did an absolutely wonderful job reading that letter. It took one hell of a strong woman to get through that. Thank you, for helping Mrs Cane tell her story, and for remembering our Veterans and their families this Memorial Day.
