First Lady Melania Trump gave a short and sweet tweet today that perfectly captures the celebration of our Independence Day in an elegant, simple sentence: “We are the land of the free because of the brave. Thank you to the heroes who serve!” This is a woman who was not born a citizen in the United States, but immigrated here legally and found herself married to the President of the United States. A woman who speaks multiple languages, is brilliant, an accomplished business woman and a devoted mother and wife. And amidst all that, she holds out a special love and respect for our military, our police officers and our first repsonders… the bravest among us.
Despite Melania’s elegance and quiet ways, she is the never ending target of the left’s unhinged hatred and vitriol. But she stiffens her spine, holds her head up high and moves forward letting all of that fall by the wayside. That’s the sign of a woman who is courageous and is used to fighting opponents. Compliments are few for our First Lady… they say she is too beautiful (is that possible?), too cold, too quiet, too aloof… it’s always something, when in reality she is none of those things. These detractors know nothing of Melania… they don’t know ‘her’. But what she feels in her heart and soul is laid bare for everyone to see.
