This Inaugural Moment Gave Me Goosebumps! Pray for Our Military!

God bless the USA! Patriotism is back. And let's pray that one of Trump's accomplishments is doing right by our vets who spent the last eight years being disrespected, denied medical treatment, and having benefits cut. The suicide rate among young vets is alarming and action must be taken to provide them the help they need.

One of the great things about the Trump presidency is that we have the hope to see a new attitude toward the military. Liberals like Bill Clinton made no bones about "loathing the military." It's an attitude endemic to liberals who seem to think of our vets as nothing but cannon fodder to fuel wars when it serves their political interests. Remember when Bill Clinton bombed Iraq to distract the nation from his affair with Monica Lewinsky? And Obama treated the military with abject contempt undermining both our active duty soldiers and veterans. As the daughter of a career naval officer who served in World War II, I am ashamed of the way our military was treated under Obama. The only people who could possibly support what he did are the LGBTQXYZ whom he empowered.

I hope and pray that part of Trump's efforts to make America great again will include keeping us out of foreign wars. We are not the world's police force and it's time to stop acting like we are. The primary function of our military should be defensive. The liberal and neocon vision of an imperial America imposing "democracy" on the world has to go. Let other nations decide for themselves what type of government to form.

Under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton we armed terrorists and drug dealers  and spent millions of dollars interfering in the government of other nations. Remember Benghazi and Fast and Furious. And don't forget the uranium scandals.

It's all about the money, folks. Like the Bible says, "Love of money is the root of all evils." And there are plenty of people out there, both liberal and conservative, whose idol is money. And wars make lots of money for some people, but they devastate the little folks at home -- middle class families whose children are cannon fodder for the rich -- and families abroad whose countries are turned into wastelands and their people into refugees. Our intervention in the Middle East has made it a hell-hole and increased terrorism. Under Obama's policies Christians have been driven from their homelands and he has empowered the Islamic caliphate. We live in a much more dangerous world because of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their liberal cronies.

It's time to put it to an end. America First! Pray that President Trump does just that!

Our Lady, Queen of Peace, intercede for our new president and for our country.

O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make our hearts like unto thine.

I also loved the moment when men and women military officers came out and danced with the Trump and Pence families at the Armed Services Ball.

Gosh, that was awesome to watch and I wish I could've been present in the crowd. That song always gets me, sung by Lee Greenwood, but for this event....over the moon. You can see how much Trump was loving it, as was the crowd. Brings tears.

Toby Keith was also awesome:

And I agree also with Oakes Spalding's comment about the sweet (and oh-so-elegant) ballroom scene of the Trumps and Pences dancing with members of the military.

From beginning to end (the concert on Thursday night to the Prayer service), as that's all I actually saw, what beautiful and perfectly choreographed pageantry. What an amazing country we live in. God bless, strengthen and protect the Trump family and the Pence family. I fear they're especially going to need it in spades.
