We find ourselves in a perfect storm. People have been pent up for months and this tragedy has exposed issues we still struggle with as a country. Even if it feels like we are at a breaking point, we live in the greatest country on Earth and still have many things to be thankful for. We are thankful we are a country of possibilities. We have encountered many challenges throughout our history, but every time we emerge stronger and better because of them. Americans always rise to the occasion and overcome even the greatest obstacles. We are thankful we are a God-fearing country. When there is suffering, we turn to the Lord for comfort and strength. We often pray for our leaders that God gives them wisdom they need to make the best decisions for our country. Our national motto is “In God We Trust” and we know through Him, we can do all things. In Oklahoma, we are thankful we live by the Oklahoma Standard. No matter the situation, neighbors will always help neighbors through tough times. Throughout the pandemic, our rallying cry has been “we’re all in this together.” That could not be truer than it is today. Every day when I wake up and do my devotion, I say “love the people, love the call.” I love this state, this country and the people in it. I am confident we will get through this together and come out stronger.
The Constitution gives us the right to peacefully protest, but violence has no place in our communities. I support the peaceful protests, like the one in Claremore and other towns, that have taken place across our district. https://t.co/gnj6j3t3px— Markwayne Mullin (@RepMullin) June 4, 2020
