Dana Loesch, the thick-skinned and quick-witted radio host and NRA spokeswoman is usually in the news for sparring with gun control advocates and destroying false narratives with cold-hard facts.
Those who are more familiar with Loesch’s work, however, know that she’s a devout Christian with a big, soft heart and that there are few people for whom she has more respect than our men and women in uniform.
So when she and her husband were traveling on their 18th anniversary over the weekend and noticed an older woman who seemed to be distressed and carried a folded flag on their lap throughout the flight, she took to Instagram to share the story of their touching encounter.
“Today my husband and I are celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary. I am grateful for this man. Yesterday we celebrated a dear friend and his new wife as they began their married life,” she began.

“While on the first flight Friday to get us from Dallas to our destination we noticed that we each had aisle seats and wondered if anyone would be willing to switch with one of us so we could sit together.
“A soft-spoken older woman a grandmother’s age kindly offered. She was traveling alone with only a small black suitcase and an blue, ordinary cloth grocery bag. We thanked her and promised to help her with her luggage after we landed.
As the flight prepared for departure, they couldn’t help she seemed quite somber.
“A flight attendant asked if she needed anything, she shook her head, thanked him,” she explained,
“and reached for something in her grocery bag and removed an unmistakable triangle-folded flag.
“She placed it on her lap, her hands over it, and closed her eyes as the plane sped down the runway and ascended into the sky,” Loesch explains.

Today my husband and I are celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary. I am grateful for this man. Yesterday we celebrated a dear friend and his new wife as they began their married life. While on the first flight Friday to get us from Dallas to our destination we noticed that we each had aisle seats and wondered if anyone would be willing to switch with one of us so we could sit together. A soft-spoken older woman a grandmother’s age kindly offered. She was traveling alone with only a small black suitcase and an blue, ordinary cloth grocery bag. We thanked her and promised to help her with her luggage after we landed. As the cabin door shut after the last passenger boarded I noticed from the corner of my eye that she seemed upset. A flight attendant asked if she needed anything, she shook her head, thanked him, and reached for something in her grocery bag and removed an unmistakable triangle-folded flag. She placed it on her lap, her hands over it, and closed her eyes as the plane sped down the runway and ascended into the sky. I nudged my husband and gestured to her. She kept that flag on her lap for the entire flight, only carefully placing it back into her humble cloth bag after we touched down in Chicago. My husband leaned up and gently touched her elbow. “I noticed the flag you’re carrying,” he said. “Are you coming back from a funeral service?” “My husband’s,” she said, tears in her eyes. “He was an Army captain. Served in Vietnam …” her voice trailed off. “Is this home for you?” She shook her head yes. “Well,” Chris continued, “we are grateful to him and so sorry for your loss. We will keep you in our prayers.” I leaned over him and gently clasped her hand in mine. “Thank you,” she said through tears and a sweet smile. As we stood to disembark, Chris grabbed her luggage and placed it in front of her. “I heard you say you’re going to a wedding?” she asked. “Yes,” Chris replied, and Sunday is our 18th wedding anniversary.” “Wonderful, wonderful,” she said, her eyes glistening. “Don’t waste a single moment of it. Not one.” She grasped the grocery bag tightly to her chest and walked alone off of the plane. Celebrating a new marriage, celebrating 18
They asked her if she needed anything but she declined and remained seated with the flag in her lap throughout the flight.
When they landed, Loesch’s husband, Chris, leaned over to her and asked if she was coming from a military service.
She explained that her husband, a Vietnam veteran, had passed away and she was returning home from his funeral.
“Well,” Chris said, “we are grateful to him and so sorry for your loss. We will keep you in our prayers.”
“I leaned over him and gently clasped her hand in mine. “Thank you,” she said through tears and a sweet smile,” Loesch recounts.
When they helped the woman with her luggage, she said she’d overheard that they were going to a wedding. Chris then explained that it was also their anniversary.
“Wonderful, wonderful,” the woman said, her eyes glistening. “Don’t waste a single moment of it. Not one.”
A poignant and heartwarming reminder just how precious strong, beautiful marriages are. Treasure those you love, and remember to keep our service members and their families in prayer each and every day.
The Systemic Antisemitism Of the Woke Culture and Modern Leftism
They claim to be fighting against hatred, but truth is there is systemic antisemitism of woke and cancel culture which media doesn’t report.
The far left has been injecting Antisemitism into the American political discourse since the early 1970s when leftist African American leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Louis Farrakhan, and the beloved bigot, Al Sharpton, all went public with their Antisemitism. One would think that in today’s times of wokeism and cancel culture, the Jew-haters of the left would be exposed, shamed, and weeded out of the leftist movements. However, the opposite is happening. antisemitism of woke culture According to Melissa Langsam Braunstein of the National Examiner, fighting Antisemitism can get you canceled. Woke theology teaches that Jews are privileged oppressors. So, when Jews are literally assaulted on the streets by the Left’s political allies, the incidents become Rorschach tests. Many view Jews as victims, but the woke prefer to intimate that Jews must be the aggressors. As a general rule, leftists don’t blame victims unless they’re Jewish. One thing you may have noticed with the rise of Anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S. concurrent with the recent Israel-Hamas war is that Antisemitism is that in most cases liberals didn’t criticize anti-Semitic attacks without mentioning Islamophobia despite the fact that there was no actual link between the two. But that’s not totally new. In 2019 when some Democrats wanted to rebuke Rep. Omar for her Antisemitism, the Congressional Black Caucus blocked the resolution because it didn’t mention Islamophobia. Instead, they passed a generic resolution that basically said that being mean to others is bad. Really? I learned that lesson when I was a child watching programs such as Romper Room, Howdy Doody, and Captain Kangaroo. As for the Jew-hating Rep Omar, she not only voted for the measure but celebrated it as a step toward fighting Islamophobia. At the end of June 2021, “April Powers, previously Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer…
How to Keep Your Kids From Becoming Liberal
here is beauty and goodness in a community of like-minded families.
Socialism, atheism, hyper-sexualism, wokeism, and the belief that America is evil is now the norm in government schools. I saw this coming years ago before my wife and I started our family which led us to homeschool our children. But we quickly learned that simply schooling at home was not enough. Please read the following message from my wife. It could save your family a lot of heartache, like it saved ours. Brandon Vallorani, Founder of Flag and Cross and Thrasher Coffee I began homeschooling in 2000, when my oldest daughter turned 4 years old. Armed with my bachelor’s degree in education and a lifelong desire to teach, I felt confident in my abilities. By 2012, our dream of a full house came true. We now had 7 children ages 16 years old down to newborn. Life was crazy but good. In the midst of raising an infant, toddlers, and teenagers, I had begun to notice some serious learning struggles with one of our children. Over the next two years, I sought help anywhere I could turn. Desperately trying to fix our problems, I scheduled appointments for testing with child psychologists and made numerous changes to our homeschool routine. Countless hours were spent in prayer. Nothing was working. I was overwhelmed and on the verge of quitting completely. And then I attended an informational meeting about Classical Conversations. Immediately inspired, my plan was to save the youngest members of our family by joining a Classical Conversations Community. I had been homeschooling for 14 years without a support system, and we all needed friends to stand in the gap. At this informational meeting, I learned about Classical Christian education: grammar, dialectic, and rhetorical stages. I saw a Director light up as she described the beauty of the program. They spoke about…
