Trump’s State of the Union Address (2019 Anno Domini)
As they say: You had to be there. Here are excerpts:
“As part of our commitment to building a just and loving society, we must build a culture that cherishes the dignity and sanctity of innocent human life. All children born and unborn are made in the holy image of God.
“Every life is sacred and every soul is a precious gift from Heaven. As the Lord says in Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart . . .
“We are blessed to live in a land of faith where all things are possible … On Tuesday, I asked Americans to choose greatness . . . Greatness for our country and to renew our love and loyalty to one another as friends, as citizens, as neighbors, as patriots and as Americans.
“There could no better way to begin this exciting national adventure than the way America has always begun our greatest adventures — by coming together in prayer. So today and every day, let us pray for the future of our country.
“Let us pray for the courage to pursue justice and the wisdom to forge peace. Let us pray for a future where every child has a warm, safe and loving home.
“Let us come together for the good of our people, for the strength of our families, for the safety of our citizens . . . And let us always give thanks for the miracle of life, the majesty of creation and the grace of Almighty God.”
