No matter what side your on, agree or disagree, its ok. But seriously THIS IS worth the read. If not keep scrolling.
Most folks know that I despised #Hillary, but happy that the alternative was Trump. #Trump for me he was the tough as nails this country needed, but I stumbled into this article about a Gold Star Navy Mom, and figured I’d share.
Billy and Karen Vaughn are the parents of fallen #NavySEAL, Aaron Carson Vaughn (SEAL Team VI). On August 6, 2011 Aaron was killed in action in the Tangi River Valley of #Afghanistan when a chopper (call sign Extortion 17) carrying thirty#Americans was shot from the sky. These moms have endured unimaginable loss and have earned the right to Speak. GSNM’s are the stuff that made#America truly great, raising kids who understand the meaning of “the last full measure of devotion.”
Here are her words:
“Sometimes #God uses the no-nonsense, salty sailor to get the job done. Appreciating what the man is doing doesn’t mean we worship the salty sailor or even desire to be like the salty sailor. It doesn’t even mean God admires the salty sailor. Maybe He just knows he’s necessary for such a time as this.
I believe with all my heart that God placed that salty sailor in the #WhiteHouse and gave this nation one more chance in November 2016. Donald Trump is what he is. He is still the man he was before the election. And without guilt, I very much admire what that salty sailor is accomplishing.
He’s not like me. That’s okay with me. I know we’ve NEVER had a man like him lead our nation. It’s crazy and a little mind blowing at times. But I can’t help #admire the ability he has to act with his #heart rather than a calculated, PC, think tank-screened, carefully edited script. I still believe that is WHY he became our #President and WHY he’s been able to handle a landslide of adversity and STILL pass unprecedented amounts of good legislation for our country AND do great works for MANY other nations, including Israel.
I’m THRILLED with what he’s doing for my #nation, for the cause of #Christ (whether intentional or unintentional, doesn’t matter to me), and for the concept of rebuilding #America and putting her FIRST. I will not be ashamed of my position because others don’t see him through the same lens.
Should it matter to me if a #fireman drops an f-bomb while he’s pulling me from a burning building? Would I really care about what came out of his mouth in those moments? Heck no! I’d CARE about what he was DOING. He wasn’t sent there to save my soul and I’m not looking to him for #spiritual guidance. All I’m thinking in those moments is, “Thank you, Jesus, for sending the fireman.”
This man is crass. Okay. He’s not careful with what he says. Okay. You feel offended that he’s not a typical statesman. Okay. But he is rebuilding the nation my son died for…the nation I feared was on a fast track to becoming a hopeless cause.”
