In her address to the UN General Assembly:

“Show me the loving bonds between your families today and I will show you the patriotism and moral clarity of your nation tomorrow. Our choices on how we raise and educate our children in fact provide the blueprint for the next generation. If we do not advocate a love of country to our children and generations to come, then why would our children grow up to fight for their countries?”

-Melania Trump, First Lady of the US

It is here that she very much differentiates herself from the preceding First Lady. For Melania, it is the family that is the most important structure in Civil Society and not Government trying to be that penultimate force. Is this why Progressives continuously try to replace the nuclear family?

From the IBD Editorial:

Melania Trump, our first immigrant first lady, harks to the traditions and verities that were the strength of an earlier time. She wants to promote good and effective family life, and a recognition of the effect good families have on the nation’s comfort and security. “Show me the loving bonds between your families today and I will show you the patriotism and moral clarity of your nation tomorrow,” she told the General Assembly of the United Nations this week. “Our choices on how we raise and educate our children in fact provide the blueprint for the next generation. If we do not advocate a love of country to our children and generations to come, then why would our children grow up to fight for their countries?”

An immigrant first lady demonstrates how newcomers have always shown their love and gratitude for America, and her remarks underscored something that’s been sadly lacking from government of late, the acknowledgment that families are truly the building blocks of a good society, and that parents have the responsibility to impart this to their children.
