Our Fallen Heroes, America

Our fallen heroes have not only written our history, they have shaped our destiny. They inspired their communities and uplifted their country and provided the best example of courage, virtue and valor the world will ever know. They fought and bled and died so that America would forever remain safe and strong and free.

They came from every generation — from towering cities and windswept prairies, from privilege and from poverty,” he said. “They were generals and privates, captains and corporals of every race, color and of every creed. But they were all brothers and sisters in arms. And they were all united then, as they are united now, forever, by their undying love of our great country.(2018)

Remembering Our Fallen Heroes

We remember the fallen heroes who took their last breaths in defense of our Nation, our families, our citizens, and our sacred freedoms. The depth of their devotion, the steel of their resolve, and the purity of their patriotism has no equal in human history. On distant battlefields, in far-off oceans, and high in the skies above, they faced down our enemies and gave their lives so that America would prevail.

They made the supreme sacrifice so that our people can live in safety and our Nation can thrive in peace. It is because of their gallantry that we can together, as one people, continue our pursuit of America’s glorious destiny​,

Schoolmates, Friends & Siblings

“I was born in Milano which is in the north of Italy and is the capital of industry in Italy and the fashion industry worldwide. I am an only child. I didn’t have to fight with any siblings of any sort. Actually I missed that very much. I would have liked to have someone to play with and to interact with. So for that reason, I was very much interested in having this tight contact with my schoolmates and the like. I actually even dreamed to go to a boarding school because at least I would be with my friends, which is kind of strange because nobody wants to go to boarding school. I wanted to go to boarding school.”

Today, It’s a Completely Different Story

“I put off having a family because I knew that I wanted to be there for my family and I was traveling a lot. At that time, the industry was not ready to allow pregnant women the opportunity to still be on camera or on the silver screen. Today it’s a completely different story, but back then, I would have lost my contract. I would have never been hired again because people were just not ready for that at that particular time.”

We Won’t Ignore Their Cries

“People with mental problems are our neighbors. They are members of our congregations, members of our families; they are everywhere in this country. If we ignore their cries for help, we will be continuing to participate in the anguish from which those cries for help come. A problem of this magnitude will not go away. Because it will not go away, and because of our spiritual commitments, we are compelled to take action.”

The Safety of a Republic, Our Republic

Putting America First

“In foreign affairs, we are renewing this founding principle of sovereignty. Our government’s first duty is to its people, to our citizens – to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values. As President of the United States, I will always put America first … We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism… I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down… and under my administration, we will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs … The nation-state remains the true foundation of happiness and harmony.”
