The impact of the President’s words this morning go far beyond what can fit in a 140-character tweet. It’s about real American families who have made the ultimate sacrifice to our country. It’s about transgender veterans like Sherri Swokowski, who served for 34 years in the United States Army and retired as a Colonel, being told that her decades of service was a “disruption.” It’s about the transgender soldiers who are waking up this morning on the other side of the world - thousands of miles from their home and the people the love - reading a message from their Commander in Chief that their service to our country is a burden. Reblog – and TAKE ACTION by telling Trump to STOP attacking transgender servicemembers.

What is important right now is not who said or didn’t say what, what is important right now isn’t the politicians, what is important right now is the life, legacy, and loved ones of Sgt. La David Johnson and his three fellow United States Army Green Berets; Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson, and Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright. May these men rest peacefully, and their families take comfort in knowing that our nation is forever indebted to them for their service and sacrifice. No words can express loss, and no words can truly comfort those who have lost, so I will simply say thank you to our fallen, and offer my deepest and sincerest condolences to the families. Godspeed Soldiers.
