Benghazi and 9/11 Memorial

Marie, Don, and I had a great day in Sacramento on the Capitol steps honoring the Benghazi dead at the 9/11 Memorial. Later we went to Tim's office and lucked out to see him for a few minutes before he went back into session.



Assemblyman Tim Donnelly (33rd District) is a candidate for
Governor of California in 2014.

Guest Speaker, Pat Boone.

Mr. Boone heard about the memorial focusing on the deaths of the Benghazi heroes and contacted organizer Ginny Rapini and asked if he could speak at the program and perform a song that he had recently written.    Ginny clearly gave his request a resounding YES.  He was inspiring and he was in great voice.



On the West Steps



Amen.
