Biden’s Message To The Nation At The National Prayer Breakfast
President Biden spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday morning, and what he said, given the context of how the 2024 campaign is shifting, was very interesting.
The President said:
At a moment of deep division in our nation, President Lincoln said, we are not enemies. He said, we are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies, he went on to say. I have long believed we have to look at each other, even in our most challenging times, not as enemies but as fellow Americans. Scripture tells us the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and faithfulness. I believe that's our collective calling today.
Here we are in this room among the statues of heroes who shaped our history, and here we know faith is a living spirit. It awakens our passions to come down from the pedestal and act to serve. That's why, over the door of the rotunda, there's a scripture depicting Cleo, the muse of history. In her hands is an open book in which she records the events taking place here, in a citadel of democracy. She is a silent witness to the American story of war and peace, insurrection and stability. As we gather this morning, what will Cleo write for the future about what we did in our time? What will she write about us?
My prayer, my hope is we continue to believe our best days are ahead of us, as a nation we continue to believe in honesty, decency, dignity, and respect. We see each other not as enemies but as fellow human beings, each made in the image of god, each precious in his sight.
We leave no one behind. We believe everyone deserves a fair shot. We give hate no safe harbor. Together we believe in America. That's my prayer, to remember who we are. We're the United States of America. There's nothing, and I mean this sincerely, nothing beyond our capacity if we act together. We're the only nation in the world that's come out of every crisis stronger than we went in when we act together.
More than nice thoughts or pretty words, politically speaking, Biden’s message is kryptonite to Donald Trump.
