Lady Gaga took a tour of the Capitol building and shared this striking shot 

"I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans. A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance not fear. A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country.

"A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls. Love, from the Capitol," Gaga wrote to Instagram. Gaga's visit follows a siege on the building on January 6th.

"Thinking about all those who shattered glass ceilings and paved the way for a woman to * finally * be Vice President of the United States makes me so emotional.
