Open response (6) to Mr. Khizr Khan

Although I am not a lawyer, I do have a B.A. and an M.A. in social studies/sciences, with a concentration in US History, and I have taught about the US Constitution to high school students.

One of my graduate research papers focused on the sense of “noblesse oblige” displayed by American philanthropist-businessmen.

When I heard Mr. Trump’s reference in his acceptance speech to his father’s insistence that he had a responsibility by virtue of his wealth to work hard/to provide for others, I immediately thought of that research that I had done. Hearing, too, of the anonymous contributions that Mr. Trump regularly made helped substantiate my hypothesis.

When Mr. Trump referred to the hard work he has done for those he has employed as the sacrifice he has made for our country, his words ring true to me.

I do believe that Mr. Trump has taken upon himself the burden of working not just for his immediate family, but for all the families his company employs. Pooh-pooh his answer all you want; no one, but God, can accurately read his soul. No one, but God, can fully know his motivations.

Having been a supervisor of just a handful of people, I know that I felt a greater responsibility to work longer and harder for them than for myself.

When Mr. Trump pledges to work hard for us, for the common everyday Americans, I believe him. And that kind of work demands much sacrifice.

Thank God for his generosity of spirit.
