Attending President Ford’s lying in state

Ford casket DC

This isn’t project affiliated but it seemed ok to blog this historical moment since it’s in our neighborhood.

When Ford served as president I was in elementary school (Hugh Hewitt nicely summarizes his term). My political affinity for him isn’t really defined but looking back at that period, it would take some guts to lead this country let alone attempt to re-install national faith in the office. And Ford stepped up. My mother admired him tremendously and I look forward to representing her at the Capitol for the lying in state Sunday.

Happiest of New Years – and good memories – to all of you.
