House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held the Bible that was used to swear in her father as Mayor of Baltimore. She was the youngest of seven children and the only girl. Having six older brothers certainly taught her how to fight. Her mother was an immigrant from Italy and active in organizing Democratic women. Her father was a congressman when she was born, and as soon as she could, the Speaker helped him at campaign events. Even her brother became a Baltimore Mayor. Yet, Nancy Pelosi is the only woman Speaker of the House, the only person to ever hold the speakership twice, and as such, she is second in line to the presidency. In other words, she is the most powerful woman in the country, and she has a message for us.

Pelosi is the opposite of Donald Trump in so many ways, especially politically. Her Memorial Day message reminds people that there are no divides when it comes to honoring the brave fallen men and women, who died defending us:

‘This Memorial Day, a grateful nation humbly pauses to remember the brave men and women who answered the call to serve and made the ultimate sacrifice. Their bravery has helped advance a brighter future for all Americans. Read my full statement here: speaker.gov/newsroom/52619/

Pelosi continued with her message about the “proud patriots:”

‘These proud patriots raised their right hand and swore an oath – from the Revolution and the Civil War, to the fields of Western Europe and the jungles of Vietnam to the struggle against terror in Iraq and Afghanistan, they fought for democracy, they fought for freedom and they fought for the ones they love, and in doing so they have helped advance a brighter future for all Americans.’

Then, the Speaker reminded us of our mutual history and how we built the middle class:

“Next month, America will mark the 75th anniversaries of two of the most momentous events in our history – the audacious D-Day landing of allied troops on the beaches of Normandy and the passage of the landmark G.I. Bill.  From the coast of Normandy, the forces of freedom would sweep through Europe to deliver hope and liberate millions from tyranny.  In America, we honored their valor and sacrifice, and the heroism of generations of servicemembers throughout our history, by passing the G.I. Bill to repay the debt we owe to those who risk everything to keep us safe, secure and free.  The G.I. Bill has been the foundation of our commitment to our servicemembers, their families and caregivers, helping build the middle class and bring prosperity to all of our communities.’

Pelosi did not forget the families of the fallen or the families of the severely wounded whether visibly or not. She knows of “bravery” having shown us in the war Donald Trump started against the Democrats and more specifically, the Speaker:

‘This Memorial Day, we remember these fallen heroes, and reaffirm our sacred duty to honor their memory, their fellow servicemembers and their families.  Fulfilling that responsibility, last week, the Democratic House passed nine bills to support the health, benefits and financial security of our nation’s 22 million veterans, Gold Star families and military caregivers as well as urgent action to end the crisis of veteran suicide.  Every day, Democrats are fighting to deliver progress that is worthy of their bravery and sacrifice.  On this day of remembrance, we once again renew our pledge: that just as the military leaves no one behind on the battlefield, we must leave no veteran behind when they come home.’
