(AmericanProsperity.com) – Woven throughout the State of the Union address on Tuesday night, President Trump introduced America to some inspiring people with stories of hope and opportunity that all Americans can embrace.
When discussing healthcare, the president introduced Ellie Schneider, who was born at 21 weeks and 6 days gestation and weighed less than 6 pounds. Thanks to medical innovations, 50% of premature babies now survive.
Charles McGee was part of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first black fighter pilots who served in WWII. In December, McGee turned 100 years old, and Trump recently promoted him to Brigadier General for his service to the country.
Making a point about failing government schools, Trump introduced Janiyah Davis, a fourth-grader from Philadelphia. In 2019, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf vetoed legislation that would have expanded school choice to 50,000 kids. Trump said that an opportunity scholarship had become available and Davis was the lucky recipient who would be soon heading a public or private school of her choosing.
In perhaps the most inspiring moment of the evening, President Trump awarded Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom — the nation’s highest civilian honor. It was the first time such an honor had been given during a State of the Union address.
