This Friday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania held a speech in front of U.S. service members following the devastating destruction brought on by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. However this time, it was Melania which stole the show with a heartfelt message for the military members, a speech in which she touched the hearts of thousands of servicemen and lifted their spirits to keep on fighting for the better of our nation:
“Every child whose parent serves in our great military should be enormously proud because your mom or dad is a true American hero,” said the first lady, continuing her speech, adding “In the wake of two devastating hurricanes, the world has witnessed your courage and compassion. And you have made every American proud.”
Her full speech can be seen below:

And while her words immediately touched millions, it was her actions beforehand which revealed more about Melania’s character and goodheartedness than any speech or description could, and all that can be seen in pictures where the FLOTUS meets with the children of U.S. service members at Joint Andrews Air Force base:
She afterwards explained to the military personnel in her speech how she cherished her time with the kids, prior to expressing her support for Florida in the wake of Irma just hours earlier.
First Lady Melania has once again set an example of how a true first lady should care and treat the people which risk their lives for our safety, as well as their children, who understand the sacrifice their parents make for our nation.
