This is a story that started last October on a Delta airlines flight. Some of you may recall the story as I retell it. Others of you may have never heard it.
Why retell it now? Because the wonderful American women’s story in the video has begun to recycle the internet. I felt compelled to lend some additional importance to the story and remind my fellow Americans of some facts. So consider this a PSA of sorts.
The story really begins with a patriotic American and heroic soldier, Army staff Sgt. Dustin Wright, who gave his life for his country. He was a special forces soldier who was among four U.S. troops killed in an ambush attack Oct. 4, 2017, in Niger. SSgt Wright, was being ushered home to the Wright family, in rural southeast Georgia; his final resting place. SSgt Wright, as is customary, was accompanied by an honor guard to oversee the final journey; garnering and securing the respect and appreciation that such a selfless act deserves and is worthy.
The soldier’s last leg of his trip home was aboard a Delta airlines flight, it was at this juncture point that Dr. Pamala Gaudry, entered the story.
Allow me to give you some back story of Dr. Gaudy in her own words.
“My name is Pam Gaudry, I am a physician, and I am the wife of a deceased Navy captain, not who died in the line of duty, and he gave 20 years of his life to the Navy.”
Dr. Pamala Gaudry, the widow of a career naval captain was well aware of the sacrifice our military personal provide and give every day. And, I am sure, in some part of her actions, not only did she wish to honor the deceased soldier, but she also felt she was honoring her deceased husband.
I’ll let Dr. Gaudry continue.
” I was on a flight from Philadelphia to Atlanta today, and we had a deceased soldier who was also accompanied by his best friend, a man in uniform, and the captain came on and asked if we would all remain seated while the soldier got off the plane first and while the Honor Guard took the deceased soldier out of the plane, which was great. I had an idea, it was just one of these spontaneous ideas, that it would be so neat when this soldier stood up and, while the honor guard was taking him off, that we should sing the National Anthem, and so I went around to each seat and I asked if people felt comfortable doing it if they would join me, and most people were thrilled out of their minds, and several women cried, and said you know that’s so great, and I had some people come up to me and say we should make a habit of this and said this would be great, and it’s a great honor to the boys parents and wife and perhaps children.
Anyway, I went to every seat. And Some people said fine, and others didn’t want to do it, which is fine; I said whatever you feel comfortable doing. After I sat back down, it was apparent that the plane was starting to descend, and the chief flight attendant came up to my seat and she kneeled down and she said, ‘It’s against company policy to do what you are doing.’ And I said the National Anthem, and there’s a soldier on board. And she said yes, you can not sing the National Anthem, it is against company policy. Then I said, Well, I just told every single person on this plane that we are going to do it, are you going to tell them not to because I’m not going around to tell them not to sing. They did make an announcement that we were to stay quietly in our seats and be very quiet. She did not tell the rest of the plane that singing the National Anthem for this soldier was against company policy.
She told me that several of the people on the plane were from other countries and that they were uncomfortable with us singing the National Anthem. So the soldier got up. They whisked him out very quickly, which I assumed would happen when word got out to the flight crew that we were going to do this. We all sat in silence as the Honor Guard took the soldier off the plane. I was a little scared that I would be taken away by, I didn’t know what would happen to me if I started speaking.”
Ladies and gentleman, this should never have happened here in America. That a proud military wife, wanting to show respect, appreciation and honor to a fallen American hero, should be squelched, shutdown and made to feel like a beaten pup, wetting itself in the corner, because she wanted to sing the National Anthem; to one of our nation’s fallen sons.
Dr. Gaudry said, “I just did the most uncourageous thing in my life today.”
She was shamed into silence.
This is what eight years of progress Leftist shaming has produced in this country. The thought, that we as Americans should ever have to stifle our pride and patriotism is unconscionable, and antithetical to everything this country was founded and built on.
This is still going on. The Left is doing everything they can to squash conservative speech, thought, and patriotic feelings, pride and loyalty.
That is what the NFL kneeling movement is about. Regardless of what they tell you, it is to shame Americans and teach our young to hate our country.
They want to Intimidate and even threaten people to shut up. Hence attacks on Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, recent attacks on Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk, as well as a host of others of whom I’m sure you are aware.
Our President stands as a grand ol’ oak, standing against the maelstrom of liberal hot air and winds swirling about. He is a one man cheer leading squad. He is the Commander and Chief of the hearts and minds of the true patriots. He is our leader, our unite, our encourage, our restorer, re-builder, and our voice.
And we, with him, must stand together, all united. One voice, one people, one nation. All colors, all people, under one flag. One creed, one pledge and one goal, take back our freedoms, our liberties and country.
COVFEFE = I WILL STAND!!! We must stand. People can only take what you allow. We like Sarah Huckabee-Sanders and Candace Owens, must do it with class and decorum. Just like Patrick Swayze said, as Dalton, in Road House, “Be Nice!” For how long? Until our POTUS tells us, it’s no longer time to be nice. And not until.
So, when they say, you can’t sing. You must sing! When they say, stop! Sing louder!! But be NICE! Got the idea?
We are winning. We will over come. United we stand. Where We Go One, We Go All!!!!!
The epic, colossus, BIG SHOW, is playing. With a cast of thousands. Get your ticket, grab your Goobers, Raisanettes, and tub of buttery popcorn. Watch the previews but, be sure to enjoy the show and trust the plan.
Trust God and keep your powder dry.
Pray for our President and his administration.
God bless America and Patriots Worldwide.
