Life in the public eye is hard enough for those who choose it and for those who have to share their family members with the public.
Families get to share some of the good times but have to live through the bad times and put up with the lonely times when the public figure can’t spare time for private life too.
They also have to live with the knowledge that to a greater or lesser degree they are in the public eye too.
Politics is particularly hard on families.
Today I’m grateful for the politicians and their families who sacrifice their privacy and private times for the public good.
