LISTEN NOW! A new voice is at the helm of leadership over America. A voice of hope and inspiration is once again echoing out from the halls of Washington. In his recent speech to a Joint Session of Congress, President Donald Trump shared many words of both inspiration and hope.

Looking back on the encouraging words that President Trump shared we can see the clear perspective of optimism that the President has for this moment in history, and the days ahead. “Each American generation passes the torch of truth, liberty and justice, in an unbroken chain all the way down to the present. That torch is now in our hands and we will use it to light up the world.” The President continued to share, “I’m here tonight to deliver a message of unity and strength and it is a message deeply delivered from my heart.”

There has certainly been a shift since President Donald Trump has taken office. “What we are witnessing today is the renewal of the American spirit. Our allies will find, that America is once again ready to lead.” This isn’t a direction that the President can accomplish on his own. He invites everyone to join him on this charge. “I am asking all citizens to embrace this renewal of the American spirit. I am asking all members of Congress in dreaming big, and bold, and daring things for our country. I am asking everyone watching tonight, to seize this moment, believe in yourselves, believe in your future, and believe once more, in America.”

In addition, President Trump also recognized Carryn Owens, the wife of Navy Seal William “Ryan” Owens who was killed during a January operation in Yemen. While recognizing Carryn and Ryan’s sacrifice for the nation’s freedom, the President reportedly held a two minute standing ovation. “For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one's life for one's friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our freedom.”

We are exceedingly grateful for Ryan’s sacrifice and his sacrifice for our nation. Our prayers go out to Carryn Owens and all of her family. It is such a difficult pain to go through a time like this, to lose a loved one. But, it is a reassurance of courage to know that his loss was not in vain. See the full speech from President Trump, his standing ovation recognizing Carryn and Ryan, and so much more.
