Tim Russert's Rainbow?

Only after seeing "Meet the Press" today did I learn that a beautiful rainbow lit the D.C. sky last Wednesday, moments after the memorial service for Tim Russert.  Here is a picture.

Rainbows in the capitol are rare -- I don't remember ever seeing one in the years I lived there.

According to the Old Testament of the Bible, rainbows are a sign of God's love, and the witness of His promise.  It's hard for me to believe that it was just coincidence that one appeared the day Washington paused and put aside the things of this world, gathering together in sincere love and deep grief to honor a man whose life had been guided by abiding faith.
