Swiss Show Solidarity with U.S.

The Matterhorn lights up with American flag.

The famous Matterhorn peak in the Swiss Alps was illuminated with an American flag this week in a show of solidarity with the people of the United States during the coronavirus pandemic.

Light artist Gerry Hoffstetler projected the flag onto the 14,682-foot peak as part of a nightly series supporting those combatting COVID-19.

“Our thoughts are with all American people at this unprecedented time. We look forward to meeting again at the foot of the Matterhorn, we are all in this together,” a Swiss tourism organization wrote in a Facebook posting.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • With thanksgiving for nations like Switzerland who take the time to acknowledge the suffering of the American people as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • For families who have lost loved ones, for patients who remain deathly ill in hospitals, and for those who are recovering from the virus, as all deal with one form of uncertainty or another.
