On Wednesday morning, the most powerful members of the U.S. government gathered in the rotunda of the capitol building to pay respects to the late Billy Graham.
Among them were President Donald Trump, Vice President Pence and First and Second ladies and congressional leaders high-ranking members of the administration.
President Trump delivered brief speeches praising Graham and Congress’ chaplains offered prayers. Trump called Graham an “ambassador for Christ, who reminded the world of the power of prayer and the gift of God’s grace.”
In a rare moment of public self-reflection, Trump recalled for the crowd the time that his own father took him to see Graham preach at Yankee Stadium in New York in 1957.
“My father said to me, ‘Come on, son’ — and, by the way, he said, ‘Come on, mom. Let’s go see Billy Graham at Yankee Stadium.’ And it was something very special,” he said. “But Americans came in droves to hear that great young preacher. Fred Trump was a big fan. Fred Trump was my father.”
Our PRESIDENT is a great man of GOD. This is called respect!! Something that many people in AMERICA do not have!
This remembrance at the Capitol Rotunda to hear beautiful spiritual words about the humility and giving nature of the lovely Reverend Billy Graham is what life’s all about!
No political boundaries just appreciation for a person we wish we could exemplify just a little.
