Paying tribute to those who defend us all: paper

ABU DHABI, 14th September, 2016 (WAM) -- Eid Al-Adha is a time when family and friends get together to pray, eat, exchange greetings and gifts, and cherish the blessed lives that we lead. Yet this Eid, an editorial in an English language local daily reminds us, there have been empty spaces at many family gatherings; places that ought to be occupied by loved ones who are absent in the service of their country.

Today's edition of The National carries an editorial explaining that many members of the Armed Forces are spending their first Eid away from their loved ones. "They have missed the company of their families and they, in turn, have been missed. But those in Yemen or elsewhere in the line of duty should be sustained by the knowledge that they are answering a higher calling. This, too, should be utmost in the minds of the families they have left behind, and the entire community that benefits from their selflessness," the paper said.
