ICYMI: Joe Biden awarded nine recipients with the Medal of Valor at the White House on Tuesday. Among them were two police officers who died in the line of duty while protecting civilians posthumously. One was NYPD Officer Wilbert Mora and his partner, who were killed in January 2022. The mother of Officer Mora, Gabina Mora, received the award on behalf of her deceased son.
President Biden honored all nine recipients for their courageous sacrifice in ensuring public safety and promised to have their backs during their service. “There’s no greater responsibility of government than assure the safety of the American people and those who serve and protect us all,” said President Biden before presenting each recipient with the medal. “We’re incredibly proud of all of you. And I mean that, incredibly proud, all of you. And we’re going to have your back as long as we need to. As long as you’re engaged.”
The Medal of Valor is an honor bestowed on those brave individuals who put their lives at risk while serving and protecting others from harm or danger. These recipients included not only police officers but also firefighters, first responders, veterans, and military personnel – all dedicated professionals whose actions exemplify courage under fire and bravery beyond compare.
These heroes have been called upon to perform extraordinary acts during times of crisis and conflict – often in order to preserve life itself – and they are deserving of such a great honor for their dedication to public service. It is these selfless individuals that make our nation safe and secure today; without them our society would be much more chaotic and dangerous than it already is now.
But the reaction of the mother of the officer I mentioned at the beginning of this article is what is drawing everyone’s attention. The look on her face was a look of disgust. Take a look at this:
