This Day I’ll Remember

January 6, 2021

The Capitol and Senate and House Chambers are a part of me.

When I was 12 or 13, I walked with a cousin under the Rotunda of the Capitol of the United States and Vice President Richard Nixon scurried by with two security guards.

I watched the ceremonies that followed the assassination of President Kennedy and watched as his body lay under that Rotunda. Later I would give a presentation in one of the conference rooms under the Rotunda.

I worked for a U.S. Senator and have been in many Senate and House offices.

I attended memorial services at a Catholic church near the Capitol for conservative colleagues, including Russell Kirk and Dr. James Dornan who died in an automobile accident. I’ve ridden the subway between the House and Senate and dined in restaurants within view of both Houses of Congress. And I’ve voted for the Republican candidate for President in every election since I was able to vote and my candidates lost more elections than they won

I am a grown man, but only today I cried as I saw a mob cross the Rotunda of the Capitol and invade the Senate Chamber and House of Representatives.
