With the attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility having occurred one year ago yesterday, America Rising would like to point out five key videos regarding Secretary of State Clinton’s mishandling of the security situation prior to the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi, her efforts to cover up her Department’s failures, and her shameful effort to dismiss her actions in the wake of four dead Americans.
The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.
