These days, there are reality shows for... well... everything. I was just watching Heli-Loggers with my dad, a reality show about loggers who use helicopters. He also watches Ice Road Truckers and Whale Wars... My aunt is addicted to Real Housewives. I know several people who watch 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom (hate those shows, but that's another conversation for another day). There really are reality shows about everything.
But what about things that matter (ok, I guess these other shows are things that matter to other people, but things that matter to me haha) - like our military personnel? I realize that the government would probably never allow a reality show about military families. There's no way they could control what would be aired and who knows what kind of face certain families would give the military. But what about one for the widows? We are no longer "government property" and that is REAL. Widows are certainly some of the strongest, funniest, most interesting people I know. It would definitely give Americans a sneak peak into what we face, day to day, after one of America's military has fallen. It would definitely give faces and names to the stories... And it would probably make for some very interesting TV. I'm not saying I really want my whole life on TV for display (I mean, it's already here on the internet, but at least I decide what I'm going to talk about) but I just think it's an interesting idea. Definitely might put things in perspective for people... Just sayin'
