There are a lot of things that make America awesome, but what stands out is how much we, as a nation, care about the citizens of other countries.Manchester was rocked by a horrific terrorist attack that took place at an Ariana Grande concert, killing 22 people.
The House of Representatives took a moment to honor those who lost their lives at the hands of evil terrorists, by having a moment of silence.Fox News reports:
The House of Representatives observed a moment of silence Tuesday afternoon to honor the lives lost in Monday night’s Ariana Grande concert bombing that killed 22 and injured more than 50.House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., asked that the House observe a moment of silence for the victims after a 1:30pm vote.
All members rose to stand on the House floor in silence.
Speaker Ryan then brought the moment to a close with a quick strike of the gavel and the voting on the House floor began.It’s critical that we, as a nation, let the world know we care about what happens in other places.
These terror attacks should be something that binds decent people all around the world together, as we share a common enemy, an enemy bent on destroying our way of life and enslaving all to a system of belief that is oppressive and degenerative.
Let’s continue to pray for the people of Manchester, and for the families who lost loved ones during this awful incident.
