Ghazala Khan’s son, U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, was killed in Iraq in 2004.

Donald Trump has asked why I did not speak at the Democratic convention. He said he would like to hear from me. Here is my answer to Donald Trump: Because without saying a thing, all the world, all America, felt my pain. I am a Gold Star mother. Whoever saw me felt me in their heart.

Donald Trump said I had nothing to say. I do. My son Humayun Khan, an Army captain, died 12 years ago in Iraq. He loved America, where we moved when he was 2 years old. He had volunteered to help his country, signing up for the ROTC at the University of Virginia. This was before the attack of Sept. 11, 2001. He didn’t have to do this, but he wanted to.

Someone should put together an in-depth, categorized research site dedicated to Trump's history and behaviors. Think of the material that can be mined for a psychology thesis, or even a dissertation.

Have you seen Slate's 141 Things Trump has said that make him unfit to be president?
