This week I was flattered, honored and privileged to attend an event sponsored by Congressman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) where my book No Angel was featured.
The guest of honor was Congressman Michael Grimm (R-NY). The evening prior to the event I had a great dinner with Congressman Grimm, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) and Congressman Jon Runyan (R-NJ). Lots of laughs and great stories were exchanged.
The day of the event I was treated to a private tour of the Capitol Building by Congressman Grimm.
Rep. Hensarling is the Chairman and member of several committees to include the the very important and influential Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform.
Rep. Grimm served in combat as a United States Marine and worked undercover for the FBI before being elected to office.
Rep. Gabbard served in the Hawai’i National Guard and was deployed twice to the Middle East before being elected to office.
Rep. Runyan played fourteen years in the NFL and is considered one of the all-time great offensive lineman to ever play the game. Jon is serving his second term in Congress.
It was quite inspiring to meet and spend time with young, refreshing and passionate lawmakers who are helping to determine the future of America. They are each really cool people and getting to know them on a personal level was a treasured experience for me.
God bless and guide our leaders.
