In the day after Hurricane Harvey, First Lady Melania Trump gave a seven-word promise Texas residents that they won’t get only words from her, but also action. This is in regards to help those that suffered from the hurricane or are in its path.
Action, not only words? That’s something we have not seen for some time out of First Lady.
In a statement, First Lady Melania Trump gave her compassion and support to people affected by the actual tragedy.
“The effects of Hurricane Harvey are felt within Texas and other regions and will be for a long time. Until now 1.7 million individuals are under pressure to evacuate their houses. However, since then the flood water in Houston rises up, sadly, there will be more evacuees.”
“I want to be able to offer my assistance and backing in the most useful way conceivable, not just by words, but also action”. “What I noticed to be the most thoughtful during the visit was not only the power and spirit of the people of Texas but the empathy and the feeling of community that has taken over. My prayers and thoughts linger to be with the people of Louisiana and Texas.”
But what did the media concentrate on when it came to First Lady response to the actual hurricane? That she walked in heels. “When is footwear not just footwear?” published Vanessa Friedman in The New York Times. “When it is a set of very high, needle-thin heels used by the very first lady on her way to the site hit by Hurricane Harvey. Then it might be a symbol so that many notices as the detachment between Melania Trump and reality; an additional example of how the First Lady and her family members continue to determine ‘appropriate’ their very own way. ”
In case you cut out everything aside from “an excuse with regard to partisan name-calling,” you would have something accurate. But let’s look into the fact that Melania Trump is promising to make America better, instead of the words ex First Lady offered us.
Michelle said she’d fix our own nation’s lunches; she gave our kids slopes. She said she will end division in the USA. As expected, only words.
Melania Trump is encouraging action – and what a positive change that is.
