Zell Miller impressed me as a Senator as much as he
failed to do so as a governor. I was not happy about
the situation, especially the manner in which he
received the appointment to fill the unexpired term of
Paul Coverdale. Perhaps those events happened more by
divine direction than I understood, for Coverdale's
service to the nation had been disappointing to me.

Zell Miller's impassioned speech before Congress won
my heart and the closing line seemed right on target:
I truly believe that at times like this, silence is
not golden. It is yellow.

This is phrased in the form of a prayer therefore I
assume it is Zell Miller's prayer:

" Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for
our heritage; We humbly beseech thee that we may
always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favour
and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with
honourable industry, sound learning, and pure manners.
Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from
pride and arrogancy, and from every evil way. Defend
our liberties, and fashion into one united people the
multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and
tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom
in thy Name we entrust the authority of government,
that there may be justice and peace at home, and that,
through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy
praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of
prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in
the day of trouble suffer not our trust in thee to
fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord.
