Almost 24 hours after President Donald Trump dropped the “Mother of all Bombs” (MOAB) on caves where Islamic State terrorists were hiding out, killing 100 of them so far, we’ve now learned that the First Lady has spent the day out of sight in a shelter. As all of this terror and retaliation happens around the world that’s been a long time coming, here’s why she is there.
Just as Trump’s airstrike in Afghanistan wasn’t announced, neither was Melania’s sudden arrival at a private shelter, far away from both Washington, D.C and her home in New York City. Her purpose for being there was important and the reason wasn’t publicized until after she reemerged when was swept away again by her tight security detail.
Melania is intentionally reserved and doesn’t try to demand respect and claim attention in being overbearing. Her actions speak much louder than the slander the left throws at her, which proves her to be a powerful leader in her own right.
Regardless of all else going on around her, in her husband’s administration, and the increased attack on the family from liberals who disagree with Trump’s recent assertive moves, Melania proves to be a woman of grace and sincere compassion. We saw this when she chose to spend the day serving women and children at a safe shelter in Florida. All of these victims have escaped abusive situations which aren’t unlike what women in Islam currently suffer under a cultural norm of acceptance for these things, which our president wants to put a stop to.
Palm Beach Post reports:
“First Lady Melania Trump made an unannounced visit this morning to seven girls at a group home for victims of abuse and domestic violence in Lake Worth.’This is a day that the girls will never forget,’ said Matthew Ladika, the chief executive officer of HomeSafe.”
Both Melania and the president are in Florida this week, where both are conducting important business on different ends of the political spectrum. Without verbally establishing her role as the compassionate leader of this country, Melania leads by her natural example.
“It was extra special and touching…She asked them what their interests are,” Ladika told the news outlet. The First Lady reportedly brought these displaced kids Easter baskets overflowing with goodies and stuffed animals – a happy surprise they probably haven’t seen in some time.
With all else is going on in the world around us, to bring a stop to atrocities and to terrorism in the homeland, Melania is focusing her heart and time right here at home on often “forgotten” citizens. What America needs right now is genuine compassion and she’s the perfect role model for it.
Rather than concerning herself with the disgusting things being said by irrelevant people, Melania gave her entire day women and kids facing far bigger issues than the awful criticism that she and her husband face. In addition to a local report on the visit, the only other public documentation of her trip to the shelter was a photo of our First Lady with these very special people at Home Safe that she posted on Twitter. With the picture, was a message of praise and gratitude for these suffering soles who have someone to look up to in her.
Genuine compassion is back in the White House with Melania as out First Lady. She’s an absolutely amazing woman who is grossly underestimated by people who don’t understand the importance of a person like her and the message she delivers with her actions. She leads by her own example of being a loving person who thinks of ways to reach out and help others more than themselves.
