‚ÄúIt is also the right thing to do.‚ÄĚ
Remembering the second worst attack on American soil
Today marks the 76th anniversary of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor that claimed 2,403 American lives on a single day in 1941. The President‚Äôs latest video tells the story of that fateful event that plunged America into World War II.
‚ÄúWe remember the lives that were lost, the families torn from loved ones, and the heroes who rose to America‚Äôs defense,‚ÄĚ the President said. ‚ÄúAs the smoke billowed that day from our sinking ships, our entire nation rose up to show our enemies America‚Äôs unbending strength, might, and resolve.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄėWhat it means to have hope‚Äô
Continuing to celebrate December‚Äôs spirit of giving, First Lady Melania Trump and Second Lady Karen Pence visited hurricane-damaged areas of Texas yesterday to meet first responders, visit families in the process of rebuilding, and assist volunteers with their ongoing efforts to help victims. One family in particular, the Zamoranos, offers all of us a stirring example of courage this holiday season.
‚ÄúI am so impressed by your positive attitudes and resilient spirit,‚ÄĚ the First Lady said. ‚ÄúYour family is an example of what it means to have hope.‚ÄĚ
