    MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Roman Catholic Church began a special round of prayers for peace in Mexico on Sunday after two Jesuit priests and a tour guide were slain June 20. Jesuits held a moment of silence for the priests, who were alledgedly killed by a local drug gang leader as they tried to protect the guide. Dozens gathered at the downtown monument known as the Stella of Light for the moment of silence. The Jesuits said they won’t be intimidated into leaving the Tarahumara mountains, where the order has ministered to the Rarámuri Indigenous community for centuries. Two priests have already been assigned to replace their fallen brothers, said the Rev. Jorge Atilano González. “Today we are starting a cycle of prayers for peace at the national level.

    ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves paid tribute to their longtime public address announcer, Casey Motter, on Monday night in a ceremony before the team’s first home game since his death last week. Following a video tribute to Motter, a moment of silence was observed in his memory before the game against the St. Louis Cardinals. Motter, 53, died last Wednesday.

Franco will continue to serve as the public address announcer through the 10-game homestand. Beginning on Tuesday night, the Braves will use some of Motter’s recorded greetings to fans and...

    by Tom Joyce   Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed a bill to ensure that students will have time to take a moment of silence at school each day. Ducey signed House Bill 2707. It’s a bill that requires all public and charter schools to give students a moment of silence at the beginning of the day. The one-to-two-minute moment of silence can be used in a way determined by the student and their parents. “As we’re working to get Arizona kids refocused in the classroom, we should also work to get them refocused emotionally,” Ducey said in his Tuesday announcement. “That’s exactly what H.B. 2707 does, ensuring all schools set aside time every day for students to engage in a moment of silence. This gives our kids the opportunity to take time to remember, reflect, meditate, pray, prepare for the day ahead or anything they – and their parents – choose.”  The bill passed through both chambers of the legislature and received bipartisan support. It passed the House 47-12 and the Senate 16-11. Private schools, parochial schools and homeschools are exempt from...

    (CNN)Grammy Awards host Trevor Noah set up expectations moments into Sunday night's show: Music's biggest night is essentially one big concert where awards happen to be given out. It was that, but because of a mid-show appearance from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who spoke of Ukrainian musicians in body armor and appealed for support, everything landed in a context that seemed to escape last week's Oscars. For a moment, the night of music and celebration stopped and the focus turned to the ongoing invasion and the plight of the Ukrainian people. "The war — what's more opposite than music?" Zelensky said. "We defend our freedom. To live. To love. To sound. In our land, we are fighting Russia which brings horrible silence with their bombs. The dead silence. Fill the silence with your music! Fill it today. To tell our story. Tell the truth about war."

    (AP) For 30 seconds, the Oscars went silent for Ukraine. A tribute that started with words from the Ukrainian-born Mila Kunis ended with the Academy Awards fading to black about midway through Sunday’s show from Los Angeles, with a plea for anyone watching to do whatever possible to send help to those in the war-torn nation. “Recent global events have left many of us feeling gutted,” Kunis said as she took the stage, part of her remarks to introduce Reba McIntyre’s performance of the Oscar-nominated song “Somehow You Do” from “Four Good Days.” “Yet when you witness the strength and dignity of those facing such devastation, it’s impossible to not be moved by their resilience,” Kunis continued. “One cannot help but be in awe of those who find strength to keep fighting through unimaginable darkness.” That’s when McIntyre took the stage, dressed in a black gown, for her performance.

    There was no appearance from President Volodymyr Zelensky despite Amy Schumer’s tone-deaf suggestion last week—and Sean Penn’s even sillier threat to “smelt” his Oscars in public—but the Oscars did recognize the ongoing war/humanitarian crisis in Ukraine with a moment of silence during Sunday night’s broadcast. Following Reba McEntire’s performance of “Somehow You Do” from the film Four Good Days, a message of support appeared on screen. “We’d like to have a moment of silence to show our support for the people of Ukraine currently facing invasion, conflict and prejudice within their own borders,” read the text, which was broadcast both for viewers at home and in the Dolby Theatre where the ceremony is being held. The next slides included a call to action. “While film is an important avenue for us to express our humanity in times of conflict, the reality is millions of families in Ukraine need food, medical care, clean water and emergency services,” the message continued. “Resources are scarce and we—collectively as a global community—can do more. We ask you to support Ukraine in any way...

On March 26, 2014, Lieutenant Edward Walsh Jr. and firefighter Michael Kennedy were killed battling a wind-whipped blaze inside a Back Bay brownstone.

    "Anyone who has questions or concerns about the Parental Rights in Education bill is encouraged to read the bill, rather than the distorted coverage in the mainstream media, which regurgitates false partisan talking points," the statement declared.

"The same Florida parents who take their families to Disney also support parental rights in education, because they do not want their young children exposed to inappropriate content about sex and gender theory at school."

    On Friday, several ESPN broadcasters showed their support for the radical LGBTQ agenda by taking a moment of silence over Florida’s education bill that prevents sexual indoctrination of preteens in schools. College basketball announcers Carolyn Peck and Courtney Lyle indulged their moment of silence during Friday’s broadcast of the NCAA championships. Calling Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill a “threat to human rights,” Lyle admitted that left-wing Disney employees reached out to ESPN employees to support their radical attack on Florida’s popular bill.

    Kevin McCarthy. He loves the spotlight “RT to thank the men and women in blue on #LawEnforcementAppreciationDay,” Kevin McCarthy tweeted from his account earlier this month. The very produced one minute and nine second-long video featured the Republican House minority leader riding bikes with law enforcement and handling memorial wreaths. The tweet, dated Jan. 9, ends with the words “thank you to our police.” But just three days before that tweet, on the anniversary of the Jan. 6 insurrection, McCarthy and nearly all House Republicans skipped a ceremony where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a moment of silence and read the names of U.S. Capitol officers who lost their lives as a result of the insurrection. Just one sitting Republican member of Congress, Liz Cheney, showed. “The Republican Party holds itself as the champions of law enforcement,” Rolling Stone noted. “They campaign on slogans of ‘Back the Blue.’” Example: Kevin McCarthy in a glossy Jan. 9 video that featured lots of Kevin McCarthy (and we know he sure does love spotlight and theatrics). “They hold rallies flying the ‘Thin Blue Line’ flag.

    Getty Pat McAfee on SiriusXM. Unless you’re an eternal optimist and still hold out hope that it will be salvaged in the next four weeks, you’ve probably stuck a fork in the Pittsburgh Steelers 2021 season. It’s been a painful run of un-Steeler-like performances on both sides of the ball, resulting in a 6-6-1 record — the franchise’s worst in 20 years (per Pro Football Reference) over a 13-week span. With just one victory in their last five games, the Steelers don’t look like a team that’s primed for a postseason run, especially given the hurdles ahead. In the league’s toughest remaining schedule, Pittsburgh faces the Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns at Heinz Field and the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens on the road. Pat McAfee, former Pro Bowl punter and host of the wildly popular YouTube show, “The Pat McAfee Show,” is a Pittsburgh native, as are most of his cohorts. Naturally, they talk a lot of Pittsburgh Steelers football. In a recent segment, McAfee observed a moment of silence for the Steelers and head coach...

However, prior to joining forces the duo were rivals in the Eastern Conference, combining for a viral and simply strange moment. While facing off in the 2014 Eastern Conference Finals Stephenson blew in the ear of James — a move that has gone down as one of the more GIF-able moments in NBA history.
