I look forward every day for the White House news briefing. Without fail, President Trump lifts my spirits and brings hope every time. Especially, after reading the news media that penetrates facts to us all day long that pose all the dangers of Covid-19. At the end of the day, it is President Trump that shows up and brings wisdom and even humor for me to stay optimistic.

 

I believe President Trump is genuine and speaks from the heart. I know, I once declared a female voice like my departed mother that set my heart on fire. But all of that has changed since the Justice Brett Kavanaugh trials that showed me a different picture of politics that I did not like at all. I could barely watch the grave miscarriage of justice.

 

Besides eight sisters, I was raised with nine brothers and an old-fashioned outspoken Italian father. The males were all sincere and often could not hold their opinions to themselves. But I always felt that their love and positive criticism guided me on the right path and never failed me. And how I had often needed it!! That leaves me to understand and respect the male authority differently.

 

The coronavirus pandemic brought even more of a spotlight on President Trump and I got to know him more, in other ways as a much-loved husband and father. He is honest, trustworthy, wise, and fair!! I see a warm and compassionate leader that is outspoken at times only because he is presented with more critical issues than anyone else, I have ever known! And he still brings us a little humor! And to hear some of the media’s disrespect saddens me. That it brings my childhood experiences to mind. Like listening to the wisdom of the male figures in my life that the President’s voice comforts me much more than anyone else. I feel that I can trust him like my own family.

 

Now you might think what does my childhood have to do with President Trump, and how he brings me hope and optimism during this terrible crisis?

 

It took me many years to see things differently and the loving support behind the male figures in my life. Especially with my outspoken father, who showed hints of humor through our life-storms to calm our fears. I have learned that men are not the same as women. Sometimes they are louder or more outspoken, and they think they know everything from their life experiences, and most of the time they are right! My father, a Veteran, served in two wars and was awarded a Purple Heart. His stories of wisdom held me up when I was at my lowest. I have learned such men can be the most knowledgeable, strong, trustworthy, authentic leaders that often just need the respect and support they truly deserve to keep them going strong. And we need them! Especially today, our world needs to listen to the richness of the human heart. The silence and the noise are the balance that brings us all together in love.

 

President Trump is the hero that brings me to hope, keeps me optimistic today, for a better tomorrow!

 

God bless President Trump!  God bless us, everyone!
