Putting political vitriol and commentary aside for a spell, let us dwell for a moment or two on the real meaning of American patriotism and sacrifice, and how a true leader acts with love of country and a caring mien towards the citizenry of We the People.
And a novel idea indeed – A president who actually loves America and its people, who is truly putting himself out there in spite of the smearing vitriol and the never-ending brutal attacks from the Deep State Big Fake News Swamp.
For all his faults (and just who doesn’t have any?) president Trump’s love of country completely overshadows anything that the Deep State Swamp media can toss his way. Any day of the week I’ll take a leader president who is unpolished yet loves his country, over a community organizer constitutional law lecturer.
How amazing and wonderful for those remaining of the Greatest Generation (who gave so much for God and country) to see in their twilight years a President who loves this country as much as they do.
The genuine respect shown to this Vet by president Trump was as heart-felt as a true leader could be. No one could be in any way ignorant enough to view the exchange between 94-year-old Allen Jones and the President as anything other than true patriotism and love of country.
Send this to anyone you know still watching the NFL and remind them of a true leader and why we stand. The WWII vets really are the Greatest Generation and they’re dying out fast. This is the most demonstrative thing I’ve seen in a long long time, that illustrates how to show respect to the Office of POTUS. Even today, 73 years following the end of WWII, and countless skirmishes in between, We the People are still learning from these brave souls.
God bless them all.
“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.” ~ John Stuart Mill
