I pray my sons will demonstrate this level of respect for the rest of their lives.
On Sunday, a shooter opened fire from the 32nd floor of a hotel in Las Vegas on a country music festival below, killing at least 59 and injuring hundreds. Of those shot and hospitalized was Thomas Gunderson.
Then, on Wednesday, President Donald Trump and Melania flew to Las Vegas to meet with victims and came across Gunderson in the hospital. The next moment that was captured and posted on Facebook is something he will likely always remember.
As the president and first lady entered his room, Gunderson stood up, despite being shot in the leg to greet the two with the upmost respect.
The caption of the video that Gunderson posted on Facebook read: I will never lie down when the President of this great country comes to shake my hand! There may be plenty of issues in this country but I will always respect my country, my president and my flag. Shot in the leg or not, I will stand to show my President the respect he deserves! Well done, sir. Well done! Mr. Gunderson Standing
One of the most inspiring videos I’ve seen in the aftermath of Las Vegas. Was this the same guy who had #MAGA written on his hospital room whiteboard?
Interesting that his eyes fixed right on the President.
I'm sure all this people were asked first if it would be okay for the President and Melania to stop by.
These pics made my day.
It's always noticeable that Melania puts the President first...and I believe she views him as the Peoples President first and herself as second....at least for eight years.
Someone needs to show this to those wuss millionaires in the NFL so they can see what REAL MEN do.
