.@NPR reported that 600K+ people had died from #COVID19 worldwide. That’s a tragic number that should concern all of us & prompt us to take precautions. However, we must also keep the number in perspective & fight against a pandemic of fear. 1/4 npr.org/sections/coron…
Here are a few other numbers to consider that are also concerning & tragic:
· 17M+ people die of cardiovascular disease every year worldwide.
· Cancer was responsible for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018, & is the 2nd leading cause of death globally.

2/4
· @WHO estimates that almost 800K people die from suicide every year.
· Between 2010–2014, on average, 56M induced abortions occurred worldwide each year.
· Each year, 1.35 million people are killed on roadways around the world.

3/4
The most important thing when we do face death & step into eternity is whether or not we have put our trust in Jesus Christ, coming to Him in repentance & faith. 4/4

While campaigning for Joe Biden, Jane Fonda said, “I just think COVID is God’s gift to the left...” The long-time progressive said the virus which has reportedly killed 200,000+ Americans—“has ripped the Band-Aid off who [@POTUS @realDonaldTrump] is & what he stands for.” Wow.
Does Jane Fonda realize that maybe this terrible pandemic has also “ripped the Band-Aid off” what the socialist progressives really stand for and the disastrous way many of them have governed their cities and states across the nation in this crisis? thehill.com/homenews/media…
Isn’t it a shame that @POTUS @realDonaldTrump’s enemies would forfeit a booming economy—and the health, livelihoods, and the very lives of Americans—if it is a way they could win an election. My prayer is that God would intervene and save this nation.

I was surprised when I left the White House on Thursday night and saw firsthand what was going on in the streets. These so-called protestors are not protestors, they are anarchists, working to start riots and fuel the fires of unrest and hate. foxnews.com/politics/verno…
Senator @RandPaul and his wife, @RepVernonJones, & others could have been badly hurt as they were leaving after @POTUS @realDonaldTrump’s acceptance speech. There should be a full investigation to find out who is behind this and those responsible.
These people are not defending a cause, they’re trying to disrupt and destroy. Whoever is paying for it should be considered an enemy to our country and held accountable. Maybe the Attorney General could look into it.

I appreciate that Sam Coonrod’s commitment is to the Lord Jesus Christ above all else. He has enough guts to state the truth about the Black Lives Matters organization & to stand for his convictions—even if it means standing alone. God bless him! foxnews.com/sports/giants-…
“I’m a Christian. I just believe I can’t kneel before anything besides God.” —Sam Coonrod, @SFGiants
Sam also pointed out the Black Lives Matters organization’s embrace of Marxism & the destruction of traditional family values & said, “I just can’t get on board with that.”

What was supposed to be a holiday weekend turned into a weekend of heartbreak for many as violence became the headline in many cities across the country. In Chicago alone, 87 people were shot with 17 killed, including a 7-year-old girl.
In Atlanta, 8–y-o Secoriea Turner was tragically shot and killed over the weekend. Mayor @KeishaBottoms is right about this—“These are members of the community shooting each other. Enough is enough. You can’t blame this on a police officer...” thehill.com/homenews/state…
Pray for an end to the lawlessness that’s being allowed to thrive and grow in many areas. Also pray for the families of the victims of this violence.

Seattle's CHOP has had murders of young black teens, shootings, rapes, robberies, intimidation, destruction. It’s not a block party or a summer of love as Seattle’s Democratic mayor said earlier. Anyone with common sense knew the direction it would go. foxnews.com/us/seattle-cho…
Why haven’t Democratic leaders in this country condemned this dangerous lawlessness? By their silence, they’re condoning what’s going on.
I agree w/ Seattle's Police Chief @carmenbest, “Enough is enough,” & I’m glad to see they’re taking down barriers & clearing the area.
Playing with anarchy is dangerous. There are some who would like nothing better than to defund the police & see mayhem consume our nation. This is an election year. Vote for candidates at every level who stand w/ the Constitution & back law & order.

This Black Lives Matter leader said, “If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system & replace it.” This advocates violence & anarchy. I hope that governors & mayors will take steps to restore law & order in our cities. fxn.ws/2A1CFtX
While the words “Black Lives Matter” are absolutely true, the organization Black Lives Matter promotes dangerous ideas. I don’t think most people understand what they really stand for & I certainly don’t believe they represent the majority of the African American community.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., once said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
