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

Published

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.

Craft Beer Customers Leave Unopened Can of Pale Ale on Bar for Fallen Soldiers

The gesture did not go unnoticed.

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.

Total Strangers Gather to Celebrate Life of Korean War Vet on Memorial Day Weekend

America has not forgotten those who sacrificed it all for our freedom.

Amid the barbecues and Budweisers, it can be difficult to temper our Memorial Day celebrations with the true reason for the remembrance. Those of us with a three day weekend are likely gassing up the boat, gathering our grill supplies, and lathering on the sunscreen in anticipation of Memorial Day – a holiday that is far too often relegated to the realm of “hey it’s summer”-style shenanigans. We mustn’t ever forget why we have the day off, however. Memorial Day is truly a day of solemn reflection on those we’ve lost in the line of American military duty – a fact that is all too often overshadowed by these celebrations. But not for the fine people of Ohio, who showed the world what compassion is all about this weekend. A public call for mourners to attend the Ohio funeral of an unaccompanied 90-year-old Korean War veteran Saturday resulted in an overwhelming response. “It being Memorial Day weekend it was the right thing to do to come up and honor his life,” Suzanne Koehne told Fox 19. She attended the funeral in Cincinnati after driving nearly 100 miles to get there from Louisville, Kentucky. The turnout was incredible. An estimated 400 strangers, like Koehne, showed up to pay final respects to Army veteran Hezekiah Perkins whose only family, a daughter, couldn’t make it because of poor health, Fox 19 and other media reported. The gesture is just another reminder of the inherent greatness of the American public, and their reverence for those who sacrificed it all for our freedoms.
