“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound…”And it was amazing at a Trump rally in Cape Girardeau, Missouri Monday night.
Trump energized the crowd by discussing his 2016 election victory and bashing his Democrat opponent Hillary Clinton for her now infamous “deplorables” comment. But in the next moment, the president said…
“Is there a doctor in the house, please? Doctor? Please. Thank you.”
EMTs rushed to help an elderly woman who had collapsed on the floor of the Show Me Center. President Trump said from the stage “take your time, take your time, relax.”
Then something truly memorable happened.
As emergency workers helped the woman, the crowd broke out into song.
As the EMTs continued to aid the woman, the president asked the crowd to “say a little prayer.” When the audience sang the song as they bowed their heads, Trump moved his head along with the words.
“Say a little prayer”
When it looked as if the woman was relatively okay and the emergency medical workers took her out of the arena, Trump commented on the crowd’s spontaneous singing. “That was beautiful…hopefully she’ll be OK,” said the president. “That was really something. I want to just thank everybody for the way you behaved. That was beautiful.”

For all the nastiness in our politics – and particularly the venom spewed at the president and his supporters – it’s good to remember that America is at heart a good country filled with so many decent people.
“Thoughts and prayers” is an often mocked comment these days, but the elderly woman who collapsed got them tenfold Monday night. It was a touching scene.
It was also the stark opposite of what the left wants everyone to believe about Trump and his supporters.
We could all stand to take a break from the hectic political cycle for a moment of humble reflection.
A moment of “grace,” even.
