Press Release for Homefront Hugs USA
At Homefront Hugs USA ,we stand united with our gold star families. Their pain is our pain . Dishonoring their sacrifices shows only ignorance. Disrespecting our gold star families is equal to spitting on the sacrifices of every single military member who has ever served our country in war and times of peace, and to the many heroes who paid the ultimate price.
Our gold star families reflect the best of our United States of America.
Their sacrifice for our freedoms and security can never be measured. We reject the behavior and words of Donald Trump who chose to demean and dishonor our gold star families by ridiculing and harshly criticizing the brave Khan family. Yet we also believe that our gold star families filled with courage and faith will rise above the small words of an insecure man . They do not need an apology that might be made simply to win votes . What he needed to show all of our gold star families was gratitude and compassion .
As the late Elie Wiesel said so eloquently ,
” When a person doesn’t have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity. ”
Now is the time for all of us with integrity and character to speak above the ignorance and politics , to rise above the pettiness and anger.
Watch closely who speaks out with courage in defense of our gold star families regardless of politics and religion, and watch who remains silent.
” There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. ”
Freedom Endures .

in the United States Air Force 25 years as a pilot
