These excerpts from a recent online Fox News story headlined: “Pence calls Vice President-elect Harris to offer congratulations ahead of inauguration.”

  • “Vice President Mike Pence called Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Thursday to discuss the transition of power to the new Biden administration.”
  • “Pence will attend Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday. Trump will not.”
  • “Unlike Trump, Pence has been very visible since last week’s storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters and far-right extremists, who were protesting the certification by Congress of Biden’s Electoral College victory over the president.”
  • “The vice president took part in a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) briefing on Thursday and made a surprise visit to the Capitol to greet National Guard troops and thank them for their service.”
  • “‘We all lived through that day of January the 6th,’ Pence said at the FEMA briefing. ‘We are committed to an orderly transition and to a safe inauguration. The American people deserve nothing less.’”

This is not a knock at all against President Trump, but a word of admiration for Vice President Pence. Mr. Pence is an evangelical Christian and has conducted himself with grace, dignity, and honor during a very difficult 4 years.

In fact, he is still conducting himself this way.

Thank you for your service to our country, Mr. Vice President, and may our Lord bless you and your family richly as you move on to the next chapter of your life.
