Memorial Day is often a time for politicians to “show off'” their credentials in terms of support for our military, and it often comes across as what it is: phony rhetoric. But with President Trump’s Memorial Day address, the emotion was real and the passion behind the words is inspiring to us all. His final words will go down in history as some of the most moving ever spoken:
“To every Gold Star family who honors us with your presence, you lost sons and daughters, husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, they each had their own names, their own stories, their own beautiful dreams. But they were all angels sent to us by God,” Trump said. “And they all share one title in common, and that is the title of hero. Real heroes. They were here only a brief time before God called them home. Their legacy will endure forever.”
The fact that we should give honour to those that have died to keep us safe is seemingly lost on some people. Many of our elected representatives turn up, give a speech, spend a minute or two chatting with a photogenic widow who won’t ask awkward questions and then leave…And then they do nothing to help the families of the fallen or the veterans who struggle on for the next year.
President Trump has already shown us that he places Veteran care at the top of his list. It’s about time those that have made the greatest sacrifice and their families are treated with the respect they deserve.
President Trump honored the men and women who died this Memorial day. He even did something absolutely amazing and cited Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly’s late son as an example of why we must never forget those that died this Memorial day. The magical moment happens at 8:00 minutes in.
“He [Kelly] and his incredible wife, Karen, have borne the single most difficult hardship of them all, the loss of their son, Robert, in service to our country,” Trump said to everyone.
*** Aren’t you glad to have a President that loves our military again? He is, of course, speaking about the son of Secretary Kelly.
“The Kelly family represents military families across the country who carry the burden of freedom on their shoulders. Secretary Kelly is joined today by his son-in-law Jake, a wounded warrior, and the secretary’s son, Johnny, who will soon leave on his fifth deployment,” Trump added. “It is because of families like yours that all of our families can live in safety and live in peace.”
Trump then praised one audience member that served in World War II: former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kans.), according to Washington Examiner. He finished the speech off with this line.
