“The chair asks that the House now observe a moment of silence in memory of the victims of the terrorist attack in Orlando,” Ryan said.
As he crossed his chest and bowed his head, most of the chamber followed suit.
But a handful of Democrats walked out. (Washington Post)
When I first heard this on the news this morning, I couldn’t believe my ears, so I looked it up. Ok, so the intention was something like, ‘where’s the bill – gun legislation.’
Wow, we had better be careful….NOTHING, nothing is more powerful than prayer and to walk out when someone asks for a moment of silence, whatever the reason is really rather arrogant and stupid.
Ok, so I understand that people are frustrated that gun laws are not tougher, but here is a question:
How do we know that in that moment of silence, someone’s heart could have been changed.
We are a very powerful and controlling people, but let’s not forget who really has the power to change things.
Perhaps a little more silence and prayer will yield greater results than all of our talking and debating.
I will be observing a moment of silence today for all of those involved with the Orlando tragedy, and for those who have hardened their hearts to the power of prayer!
