The Incredible Way “Fox and Friends” Stepped Up to Support Slain Officer’s Widow

Published

on

As the immigration debate intensifies, the death of Corporal Ronil Singh, the California police officer who was gunned down by an illegal immigrant in December, is a sore spot for many.

As tensions flare over immigration reform, a little-known but heartwarming story of how Americans rallied together to support Singh’s grieving widow is exactly what we need right now.

Anamika Singh knew in the back of her mind, like every wife of an officer or serviceman, that the day might come when her husband wouldn’t come home from work. And, just hours after celebrating Christmas with him and their precious baby boy, that day came.

On December 26th, Cpl. Singh was shot during a routine traffic stop by Gustavo Perez Arriaga and died on the scene at just 33 years of age.

What would his wife and five-month-old son do now? It’s life-shattering enough to lose your spouse, your soulmate, especially in such a heartbreaking way. The financial uncertainty that comes with losing your husband, the proud provider of your family, is just salt in the wound.

That’s where the Tunnel To Towers Foundation (T2T) steps in. The foundation was started by Frank Siller who named it for Stephen Siller, his brother, a fallen 9/11 firefighter.

According to their website, T2T seeks to “honor our military and first responders who continue to make the supreme sacrifice of life and limb for our country.” Through their Fallen First Responder Home program, this incredible charity provides “a support system for the surviving family and ensure that they are cared for.”

When Frank Siller highlighted Singh’s T2T fundraiser in an interview on ‘Fox And Friends’, thousands of the show’s viewers showed up in a big way to come to Anamika’s aid, raising $350,000 in just a matter of days.

Fox News Insider reported that the $300,000 goal was intended to pay off the Singh family’s mortgage, while the excess $50,000 raised will be put away for “educational opportunities” for their baby boy.

“I couldn’t be more grateful to your viewers that we’ve been able to raise all this money and relieve that burden for this great family,” Siller said in a follow-up appearance on Fox And Friends. “It makes a big difference,” Siller said. “We can help [the family of every fallen] police officer and firefighter and Gold Star family in America if most of your viewers sign up.”

More than just donating one time to the Singh family, he revealed that masses of viewers pledged to donate $11 monthly to the foundation, meaning many more families of police officers, firefighters, and military members will be supported in the wake of the immense sacrifices they’ve made to our nation.

New Zealand Madman Bravely Chased by ‘Good Guy’ with a Gun

As with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

New Zealand

 The sheer horror and terror of what has occurred in New Zealand stands at such close proximity at this time, that it is difficult to fully gauge its gravity.

It has certainly shocked the nation itself, as New Zealand isn’t known as a dangerous, or even particularly excitable, place.  The serene and unfathomably gorgeous surroundings, along with the California-like dichotomy of beaches and ski mountains within hours of one another, lends the Kiwis the unmistakeable air of “chill” that one normally reserves for Malibu or San Diego.

In fact, this rampage claimed the lives of more New Zealanders than an entire year of homicides would have in the country.

But, as with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

That’s right; a good guy with a gun.  It’s the same story that we hear time and again, all over the globe, and it rings fundamentally true in nearly all aspects of life.

It is not enough to hope and pray for the bad guys to turn the other cheek.  No; we must also hope and pray that good men will not stand aside and do nothing in the face of such evil.  And, by God, let’s hope they’re armed.

Fair Haven, Vermont’s Newest “Mayor” to Take “Office” Tuesday

Mayor Lincoln will take the reins, (no pun intended), on Tuesday, after beating canine competitor Sammie Viger in the bizarre mayoral race.

When it comes to community fundraising, there are no shortage of unique and inspired ways in which Americans can help one another out.

Between the candy bar cartel, the car wash cabal, and the bake sale barons, local communities throughout our nation have long found interesting and unique ways to stash a little extra cash for a shared project.

Now, one town in Vermont is taking things a step further, allowing residents the opportunity to put a name on the mayoral ballot for a mere $5, with the cash raised going to the creation of a new public playground.

But there’s a catch

A 3-year-old goat in Vermont beat out more than a dozen other pets for the title of honorary mayor.

Lincoln, a Nubian goat, was chosen by residents in Fair Haven, a town of roughly 2,500 people that sits along the border of Upstate New York, to serve as mayor for one year.

The goat was among 15 other animals on the ballot in the running for the honorary position. Lincoln beat out several other animals, including cat Sassy Towle, a dog named Stella Heibler and a gerbil named Crystal, for the job.

Lincoln took 13 of the 53 votes cast, just surpassing a dog named Sammie Viger who took home 11.

The young, female goat will lead the town’s Memorial Day parade later this year, dressed to the nines in yet to be revealed “custom sash”.

And while the fundraising stunt only brought in around $100, local officials are hopeful the exposure that Lincoln brings to the town will be beneficial in as-of-yet unknown ways.
