President’s Message by Kay Wildt

The Diamond award recognizes that a club is operating at the highest level following NFRW's plan for excellence in programs, community relations, campaign activities, membership development, and club functioning. Thanks to our members' generosity in sharing time, talent, and treasure, MRW continues to make a difference in our community.
We Continue to Support Our President
Anarchy in America did not begin with the election of President Trump, but it took on new meaning after November 9th.
Leftists, whether they align with Bolsheviks or Reds, are following in the footsteps of Stalin, and Mao and inciting violence.
Anarchy unleashed will reach a point, as it did in Russia and China, until it cannot be contained. When our laws are not enforced evenhandedly by those in authority, and mayhem is permitted, that is extremely disturbing.
What is even more disturbing is that so many young are easily led into thinking that the “Antifa” crowd or the Democrat’s resistance organization, called “Indivisible,” will lead to anything positive. Protesting may seem fashionable to some, but it turns ugly when professionals are paid to turn protests into violent confrontation.
When segments of our population are too blinded by partisan hatred to confront our history, our institutions have failed us.
Will tearing down or moving statues or ripping out pages from books change history? No, of course not. So when will local officials stop pandering to the professional agitators, the disaffected, and the mentally disturbed and put an end to allowing violence in our cities?
Keep supporting President Trump with your telephone calls, emails, and cards.
Each day send an email or make a call to President Trump, Senator Richard Burr, Senator Thom Tillis, and Representative Richard Hudson. It takes courage in D.C. to stand firm against the Left, especially if no one from our side bothers to communicate with our Members.
Your calls or emails are important. The White House & Congress count how many people contact them.
