Oh they are! My oldest is a surgeon's asst in the Army, middle son is an airborn field medic, just recently returned from Iraq - earning a CAB medal as well - my youngest is diabetic, so he serves in the State Guard. They know about all of this - and don't even want to talk about it. They are WONDERFUL men! They are part of the reason that I am Pro - if anyone hurt them, I would rejoice seeing that person pay. Being fair to me is putting myself in anothers place and HONESTLY seeing how I would feel. If one of my boys murdered or saw it, was present, ect....would I want my son to be executed? Of course not - but I also would have to be honest and fair and KNOW that they were adults, knew killing was wrong - AND KNEW THE PENALTY FOR THAT CRIME! Children are taught, no matter how they are raised, about right & wrong. They know shoplifting is a crime, theft, murder, ect. So when they reach the age of adulthood, it then becomes a choice they make - knowing what could happen if they are caught. This is no different then knowing if we speed, we will get a ticket if caught. They got caught - and now, no matter if any of us agree or disagree on the penalty, they have to serve that penalty. We can't change the laws of the land just because we don't approve. Laws are there for a reason, as well as a penalty to those who choose to ignore those laws - TO PROTECT US ALL!
