On Monday morning, Time Magazine released its top ten “shortlist” ahead of the Tuesday reveal for its annual “Person of the Year” issue, and many of the nominees came as no surprise. Whether it was the March for Our Lives students or Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, it was a liberal list made in heaven.
Also, on the shortlist, Robert Mueller, the special counsel who is leading the Russia investigation. Ryan Coogler, director of Black Panther. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were teenagers. –Life News
Conservative actress Patricia Heaton, a vocal pro-life advocate, and devout Catholic took to Twitter to ask the leftist propaganda rag why they completely ignore the amazing charitable acts of actress Gary Sinese when they’re doling out their “Person of the Year” awards?
Patricia Heaton Retweeted Gary Sinise’s tweet showing the smiling faces of “Gold Star” children who have lost at least one parent in the line of duty, who were on their way to Disney World, thanks to the generosity of Gary Sinise.
@TIME , why isn’t @GarySinise ever on the Person of the Year list? Hey @TheAcademy , why isn’t he ever picked for the #jeanhersholt humanitarian award? He raises $30M a year to build homes for wounded vets along with his #goldstarfamily support. Retweet!

Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King, Jr. tweeted that she agreed with Heaton’s suggestion.
Three days ago, Gary Sinise tweeted an incredible photo of an airplane filled with smiling kids, along with one of their parents, as they flew to Disney World—part of an all expenses paid trip, courtesy of Gary Sinise.
The Daily Wire reports – Actor Gary Sinise, whose devotion to America’s veterans and their families has taken on near-legendary status, has really topped himself this time; his Snowball Express Program, part of his Gary Sinise Foundation, treated almost 2,000 children of Gold Star families to a trip to Disney World just two weeks before Christmas.
On Monday, Sinise tweeted, “Over 1000 Gold Star Children travel w/ surviving parent, 1,750 in all, via @americanair to Disney World today as part of our @GarySiniseFound Snowball Express program. This charter left LAX this morning. I’ll join up in a few days. Have fun kids! We love you!”

From the Snowball Express website:
“We’re serving the children of fallen military heroes. In 2017, Snowball Express became an official Gary Sinise Foundation program. We are committed to maintaining the wonderful traditions while finding new and exciting ways to serve our families of the fallen.”
“No matter where these families are in the grieving process, we hope to inspire them to believe anything is possible. By providing guilt-free fun and beneficial resources in a stress-free environment, we’re creating a community to learn, grow, and make lasting memories with new friends.” It also explains just why the program was taking the kids at this time of year:
The holidays can be especially challenging for grieving families. Each December, we host a five-day experience for 1,750+ children of the fallen and their surviving parent or guardian. As a therapeutic retreat with a blend of fun and inspiring programs, these families can lean on their peers for support. And this year we’re bringing Snowball Express to Walt Disney World® Resort!
