If you’re in the Washington D.C. area, don’t miss Trump’s incredible parade! He’s requested tanks to show up at the National Mall, but that’s still in the works. No matter what, attendees will be treated to extra fireworks and fighter jet flyovers! It’ll be a night to remember thanks to our great president.
Iran Calls for Unity in OPEC Meeting
Bijan Zanganeh, Iran’s Oil Minister, is attempting to level the playing field during an OPEC meeting.
Iran Oil Minister at far left. Saudi energy minister at far right. Seems this #OPEC meeting will never end. They are bickering about the charter of cooperation with non-Opec producers. Iran is arguing that this may jeopardize Opec's independence. #OOTT pic.twitter.com/Eb1Q5oD7Oc

Tensions are extremely high due to the oil tanker attacks weeks ago and all subsequent events. Iran is attempting to use this latest OPEC meeting in search for ways to get out of the economic hole they dug themselves into. Discussions are still underway, even if they’re slow and drawn-out. Hopefully, a peaceful deal is possible.
Rhode Island Catholic Church Releases Names of 50 Sexual Abusers
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence just released the names of priests and deacons who sexually abused children.
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence on Monday released a list of clerics, religious order priests and deacons it says have been credibly accused of sexually abusing children. https://t.co/o44boJxz2v

The list dates back to 1950, and only 19 of the individuals are still alive. Most of them are no longer part of the church. The Rhode Island church released these names after a Catholic ruling called for individuals to report these horrific actions to their church authorities. The state is one of the most predominantly Catholic states in the country.
The victims greatly appreciate the transparency and hope that other Catholic churches will follow suit.
