On Good Friday, First Lady Melania Trump took time out of her schedule to make an unannounced visit to Lake Worth, FL. Not surprisingly, mainstream media didn’t have any time, in between bashing her husband and covering ANITFA protests, to mention the visit.
What a shame, because, it was an Easter to remember for a group of girls who needed a spark of hope.
Mrs. Trump visited HomeSafe, a group home for abused children who have been removed from their homes by the court system.

A recent poll showed that her popularity has grown considerably over the last few months. It’s quite refreshing to have a first lady that is making a real difference in the lives of women and children. Thankfully, hope and inspiration have replaced the days of rap-style workout videos and horrible school lunches.
