Courageous women, whom we honor today, are real heroines. Courage is the quality that is needed in the world. It distinguishes the characters from all the others. Courage is manifested when you not only see something wrong, but you also try to correct it,

The awards ceremony was preceded by scandals related to the alleged treason of Donald Trump, which affected the reaction of users of social networks. Many of them criticized the first lady for attending the Women of Courage Awards.

Melania is not the person who can award such a prize. She is a weak woman, who again and again allows herself to be deceived. She has the opportunity to stop lying and show an example to other girls and women,
