Special guests gathered at the White House Rose Garden, celebrating a historic milestone—the 31st anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Attendees included President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Sen. Patrick Leahy and Sen. Bob Casey Jr., among others, including a number of individuals with physical disabilities.
Harris opened the proceedings, touting the law, enacted in 1990, as a great thing for disabled Americans.
"The ADA gives all Americans the opportunity to determine their own future," Harris said. "Self-determination, which I believe the government must facilitate—that is the impact of the ADA and, after all, the promise of America."
Harris introduced Maryland-based artist Tyree Brown, who sat in a wheelchair listening to the opening remarks. It became apparent that she had not been properly vetted for the event as she made her way to the microphone.
"Hi, I'm Tyree Brown. I'm a Christian artist, and I want to give all the glory for all I am to the Lord Jesus Christ," Brown said to the astonishment of the audience. In particular, those on stage responded with silence.
Brown continued with a couple of short comments, greeting her mother who was watching online, and speaking on the American Disabilities Act. But it was her boldness in the Rose Garden, in the center of a regime that is passionate in its repudiation of every basic premise of the very Lord that Tyree so boldly proclaimed, that shocked the audience.
She reminded all that, in spite of efforts to erase the Lord from the center of power in this country, Christ's precious ones are sharing the love of Jesus with confidence and love.
Brown proudly proclaimed the Lord Jesus Christ from the pulpit of her wheelchair, reminding all in the White House Rose Garden—including Biden, Harris, Pelosi and the rest of the assembled guests— that the love of God still rules.
Bestselling author of God and Cancel Culture Stephen Strang says, "The Black church is so important in the Black community" ... reflecting the words of John in Revelation 7:9, "Then I looked. And there was a great multitude which no one could count, from all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands."
