Securing the US Capitol

After the attack on the Capitol, efforts are underway to secure it for congress and for the Inauguration of Joe Biden. 1000s of Nation Guard members along with The Capitol and DC police have been called to provide security.  Fencing have be put up around the Capitol and the national Mall.  The National Mall wall will be closed so no one will be allowed there for the inauguration.

The FBI is reviewing video, photos, and social media to track down people that participated at the insurrection at the Capitol on Jan 6, 2021.  They claim to have received lots of tips that will help them find the perpetrators.  Alerts have gone out to secure all 50 state capitols because of alleged planned attacks on them.  

Trump recently gave a speech saying that people that do violence and vandalism are not his followers.  He basically called for calm during the speech.  He did not apologize for the remarks he made at the January 6th rally which incited the insurrection.

Trump Speaks - Too Little To Late?

  It's good that Trump made this speech to the country and for his base to know that violence is unacceptable.  He did not apologize for what he did and said at that Jan. 6th rally but this is good to calm people down.

Black Lives Matter has come into its own

A few years back when the Black Lives Matter movement came about during the Trayvon shooting, and Fergueson and etc I don't think it was embraced as it is now.  I think White America felt hesitant to embrace it because I think they felt "left out" or excluded in the protests somehow.  You would hear the phrase All Lives Matter.  Hillary Clinton used it during one of the debates.

Sunday Sermon at Union Cathedral Bishop McCrae -"It Didn't Break Me"

 I thank God for Technology.  I am from South Georgia but now live in Richmond, Virginia and the church I attended does live stream of the Sunday Service and Bible Study on Wednesday.  Our pastor is Bishop Wade McCrae.  Today he preached a sermon called, "It Didn't Break Me".  In it King Nebuchadnezzar demands that 3 Hebrews bow down to his god an engraven image.  Meshach, Shadrack, and Abednego did not bow and were thrown into the fire where they were not consumed.  God protected them and Jesus walked in the fire with them. This example of God's love and mercy is something we can see in our lives.  Many times when I was lead astray I thought if only I would have stuck to the Bible teachings.  God is love and he wants us to love others as we would love ourselves.  Bishop McCrae preached The Problem they encountered and Their Purpose was exposed.  He said that people would insinuate things about you Christians.  We don't have to worry about the negative things that
