Pres­i­dent blows time to en­cour­age grads

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - VOICES & OPINION - Jesse Shein­wald, Boyn­ton Beach Vic­to­ri­aWu, Mi­ra­mar

So, the pres­i­dent ad­dresses the 2017 class at the Coast GuardA­cademy. In­stead of us­ing his speech to con­grat­u­late them on their achieve­ments and the chal­lenges ahead, he uses much of his time to whine — us­ing his third-grade vo­cab­u­lary — about how un­fairly he feels he has been treated in the media.

Per­haps Trump could have in­cluded a few words about the bil­lion­cut his ad­min­is­tra­tion pro­poses for theCoast Guard. That would have livened things up and sure­ly­would be the source of in­ter­est­ing thoughts for the­newof­fi­cers as they con­tem­plate their fu­tures in pro­tect­ing the coun­try and sav­ing lives. based upon the prin­ci­ples of truth­ful­ness, com­pas­sion and tol­er­ance, Con­gress­woman Ros-Le­hti­nen spon­sored four res­o­lu­tions passed by Congress to con­demn this bru­tal­ity. As one of the mil­lions of Falun Gong prac­ti­tion­ers who ex­pe­ri­enced de­ten­tion and abuse in China, I know­first-hand howthese con­gres­sional res­o­lu­tions con­strain the per­pe­tra­tors and give hope in the dark­est mo­ments.

On be­half of tens of mil­lions of Falun Gong prac­ti­tion­ers world­wide, thank you, Ileana!
