Glory Glory!

Tear of joy in DC and around the country as we celebrate the incoming 45th President Donald Trump

Last night Donald Trump and family, in a inaugural-eve show looked splendid.

The Battle Hymn of the Republic playing with fireworks and cheers in the background. What an outstanding way to celebrate the last day, and the end-of-an-error Barack Obama. May God grace our nation once more under the leadership of the new president.

Indeed, the challenges will be great, but with the Almighty’s Blessings, “His Truth” will certainly be “Marching on.”

    Here’s a little snippet from John M. Lawson’s great little story/editorial from Barron’s last week about FDR and Churchill attending service at Christ Church in Alexandria, VA on January 1, 1942:

    “…as described by Jon Meacham in Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship. Before they sang “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” the rector explained that it would be the first time the Southern congregation of Christ Church had sung the hymn associated with President Abraham Lincoln and Northern victory. But, he said, the current world crisis meant it was time to “bury the hatchet of the War Between the States.”
    Welles (the rector) noted afterward that as FDR, Churchill, and the congregation sang the “Battle Hymn” together, the prime minister, hearing it for the first time, was “so deeply moved that in the middle he wept, with great tears running unashamedly down his cheeks.” Cecilia Sandys, Churchill’s granddaughter, wrote that the whole congregation within the white walls of the church sang movingly. Years later, Churchill selected the hymn for his own funeral, saying its inclusion was a tribute to his American mother.”
    Glad Churchill’s bust has finally been returned to the Oval Office. Brigitte Gabriel pointed out today, regarding the return of the bust, that this is “A time for Churchills, not Chamberlains.”
