Relying on family in times of crisis
Andrew Napolitano is a familiar face to most people in America. His experience as a judge and popular lawyer spans more than four decades. He is probably best known for his harsh legal opinions on cable television programs and several talk shows on the radio. He can be direct and does not hold back on views of the world and current events. Before the public ever heard of the name, he graduated from Princeton University, followed by Notre Dame Law School. He himself spent many years training future lawyers. Being a law teacher was one of his passions. He also firmly believes in upholding the Constitution and not misinterpreting what it was originally intended for. Many of his scientific writings have been published. He is also the author of several popular books that deal primarily with our personal freedom.
The legal expert was a long-time advocate of strong family ties, among several other important topics, and has often discussed the topic in public. He is extremely protective of his personal life and family, which he rarely speaks about at length in the media and other media. It is something sacred and precious. This view has never been discussed so extensively as at this point in our recent history. With the pandemic now reaching a full year of social distancing and isolation, everyone seems to be dealing with their own hardships. Many have lost their most vulnerable loved ones to the spread of the virus. A huge part of the population continues to struggle with underemployment, underemployment, health insurance problems and their children going to school. This is uncharted territory for the vast majority of parents and guardians raising young boys and girls of school age. Most had to rely on the help of neighbors or friends. People had to rely on these people more than ever for support.
This gives family and friends time to reflect on what they are most grateful for. The judge has often reminded viewers of his gratitude for a loving, supportive family unit. He recently spoke to loved ones about the importance of continuing this support. As the population continues to grapple with these difficult situations and long to return to some sort of normalcy, it is instructive to hear him talk about these vulnerabilities. The population now has myriad new norms that challenge young and old every day. There are many new rules about how and where we interact with each other. It's important to have someone you can count on and communicate with. Human interaction is something that everyone needs. Quarantine can be a heavy burden on a person. When we approach a light at the end of this long tunnel, everyone must learn something. Many have now found a new appreciation for relationships, companionship, and life experiences.
