I had people say to me: “He knew what he signed up for” when my son was killed in Afghanistan on his 14th deployment. They even aired their political opinions about the war, basically implying my son died in vain. He joined before 9/11 and never expected us to go to war. At 18 he had to plan his will and decide where he’d be buried. He told me that he hesitated asking his girlfriend to marry him, because he knew the risks and didn’t want her to be devastated if he was killed. Thankfully, they married and I have two granddaughters-his DNA that I can hug-and an amazing daughter-in-love.
Because of my son’s media notoriety, the media exposure only intensified my stress levels, which were over the top, and the media who honored my son caused another Gold Star mom to become jealous of the media coverage of my son’s death and said things that felt mean to me. In the beginning when you’re so raw, the pain of offense burns deep into the psyche and emotions.
Every time a Gold Star parent reads about the death of another soldier, it kicks us in the gut. When I saw the picture of Mrs. Johnson lying over the casket, I wished that she did not have to join the “Gold Star family” that no one ever wants to be a part of. I wanted to hug her and to protect her. I thought about her children who will grow up without their father and the baby in her womb who will never meet her/his dad. I wanted to know more about her hero husband, not other people’s opinions of what this or that person thought or said.
I relived all the feelings of being informed of my firstborn’s death, his body in his refrigerated casket being repatriated at Dover Air Force Base—the Morgue Air Force Base. At that time, my brain was so blown up and I was beyond devastated. I can’t even imagine the amount of extra stress and anger the media free-for-all may have created for Mrs. Johnson.
Honestly? This is what I want to scream to everyone who express opinions not based upon their personal trauma, but based upon out-of-context sound bites triggering unresolved hatreds which are dividing our nation and imposing unnecessary pain upon Gold Star parents: SHUT UP!

😱😱😱 Tomi spit some more truth tonight 🔥. This time she exposes the MSM’s dishonorably biased coverage over the past year. This is real news!! heres some of what Tomi said, “For almost a year the leftist mainstream media has been obsessed with one thing - Russia, Russia, Russia. It’s all we hear about. They say – no, they insist – that the Trump campaign colluded with Putin to win the election. After all, there’s no way all of their BS poll numbers and Hillary cheerleading could have been misguided, right? Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin had to have stolen this election from Hillary, right?
Day after day, the fake news media has hammered the Russia conspiracy home. Until the real Russia story bubbled up to the surface. The Russia story that they don’t want to talk about. The Russia story that goes like this.
As Mrs. Clinton was beginning her job as Obama’s secretary of state, federal agents stood by and watched as Russian influences massaged their way into the back pockets of… Donald Trump? Nope. Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. That’s right. Let’s talk about a little deal called Uranium One.”- Tomi Lahren @tomilahren (excerpt from her new Fox Insider Show, “Final Thoughts”). #truth#america#trump#maga#beautiful#queentomi#queen#tomilahren#teamtomi#hot#strongwoman#republican#fakenews#soldier#veteran#makeamericagreatagain#cnnfakenews#trump#snowflakes#babe#amazing#finalthoughts#foxnewsinsider#america#conservative#rightwing#allamerican#fakenews#hillaryclinton#hillary#foxnews
I wanted to share these shots from a University's arachnology department to help lend some credence to the idea that people's own imaginations and propensity toward thriving on dramatic stories isn't just my opinion on the matter but is instead rooted in fact. We sensationalize stories as we retell them, either inadvertently simply because memories can be distorted or, quite frankly, we like to make the details more exaggerated in order to elicit a response from people that's more to our liking. I mean, let's face it: stories of danger and medical emergencies from animals are far more exciting tales than the often counterintuitive---though often more REALISTIC---nature of the actual experience in which nothing was as bad as the stories and pictures found online make it seem.
These are two exampkes---screenshots from the website of University of California Riverside's dept. of Arachnology and touches on some of the hysteria behind spiders, how gullible people can be and why the internet is a DIFFICULT place to easily find credible information, and how those factors play into perpetuating rumors the surrounding them; the article presents excerpts from stories published in the American Journal of Arachnology and can be found there. Below is the web address to the page containing the exerpts, and if you'd like more information you are free to follow the site's source links.
