North Korea has conducted a major Nuclear Test. Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States.....

I guess this could be thought of as the Continental Divide

Trump is impulsive and inexperienced. Not a good combination in a president... or anyone for that matter.

The NK news was bad enough. Then Trump tweets and reminds us all he is president. Crap.

Trump is the worst president in US history and this is one of the scariest moments in US history.

It is hard to imagine a worse president. Trump is inarticulate, uninformed, unethical, and impulsive.

The only one worse may be Kim Jong Un. And now we have a nuclear standoff between them.

Texas Governor Proclaims Day of Prayer

Texas Governor Proclaims Day of Prayer

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has signed a proclamation declaring Sunday to be a day of prayer in his state following Hurricane Harvey.

September 01, 2017

Joined by Vice President Mike Pence and the Rev. Franklin Graham, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a proclamation Thursday to designate Sunday as a day of prayer throughout Texas.

The governor’s proclamation states, in part:

WHEREAS, it is right and fitting that the people of Texas should join with their fellow residents and with others from across the country and around the world to seek God’s wisdom for ourselves and our leaders and ask for His merciful intervention and healing in this time of crisis;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GREG ABBOTT, Governor of Texas, pursuant to the authority vested in me by the Constitution and Statutes of the State of Texas, do hereby proclaim Sunday, September 3, 2017, as a Day of Prayer in Texas. I urge Texans of all faiths and religious traditions and backgrounds to offer prayers on that day for the safety of our first responders, public safety officers, and military personnel, healing of individuals, rebuilding of communities and the restoration of the entire region struck by this disaster.

Prior to signing the proclamation, Abbott said:

"Throughout our history, Texans have been strengthened and lifted through prayer, and it is fitting that Texans join together in prayer in this time of crisis. Throughout this disaster, we have seen the power of Texans helping Texans, and I am hopeful this proclamation will bring people together once more. We have remained strong throughout this ordeal, and this Day of Prayer will make us even stronger together."

Following the governor’s statement, the vice president spoke briefly about the Trump administration’s commitment to recovery efforts. He was followed by a prayer led by Second Lady Karen Pence.

The event was held at the heavily damaged First Baptist Church in Rockport, which suffered the brunt of Hurricane Harvey as it made landfall.
