Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Sharon Gail Lee spoke to the 12th Judicial District Bar Association in Sewanee where she shared the story of her father’s sacrifice and bravery while incarcerated in a German prison camp during World War II. A  Hamilton County Herald piece relates the justice’s speech and overarching message about appreciating the sacrifices of our veterans. “There’s a lesson in this story for all of us,” Justice Lee said in conclusion. “As we face adversity of a much, much lesser scale, we need to remember each day is a gift. We should face each day with optimism, hope, and determination to succeed. We must never forget the sacrifices our veterans have made for our freedom.”
