America's White Table

by Margot Theis Raven

The White Table is set in many mess halls as a symbol for and  remembrance to service members fallen, missing, or held captive in the  line of duty. Solitary and solemn, it is the table where no one will  ever sit. 


As a special gift to her Uncle John, Katie and her sisters are  asked to help set the white table for dinner. As their mother explains  the significance of each item placed on the table Katie comes to  understand and appreciate the depth of sacrifice that her uncle, and  each member of the Armed Forces and their families, may be called to  give.  It was just a little white table... but it felt as big as America  when we helped Mama put each item on it and she told us why it was so  important. "We use a Small Table, girls," she explained first, "to show  one soldier's lonely battle against many. We cover it with a White Cloth 

to honor a soldier's pure heart when he answers his country's call to  duty." "We place a Lemon Slice 

and Grains of Salt on a plate to show a  captive soldier's bitter fate and the tears of families waiting 

for  loved ones to return," she continued."We push an Empty Chair to the  table 

for the missing soldiers who are not here..."
