Honoring Those Who Served.
On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, the guns of the greatest war mankind had ever seen fell silent 100 years ago. It's been said that in that silence, man heard the voice of God. In my lifetime I was lucky enough to meet a man who was there at that moment; there to hear God speak to mankind. I hope you were able to take some time this weekend to honor those brave men and women in observance of Veterans' Day. Hundreds gathered for the Colonial Williamsburg Armistice Remembrance, where local veterans and their families stood to be honored.
So great to have Uncle Joe in Newport News last month!

School Safety Committee
To provide another update as to the progress of the Select Committee on School Safety, the 60 recommendations from the subcommittee have been pared down to 24 priority proposals by the Speaker of the House. These 24 will be discussed at this week's meeting of the full Committee in Harrisonburg. Delegates VanValkenburg, Bourne, and I continue to challenge the Committee to take a student-centered approach to safety through discussing mental health and other priorities listed in our July letter to the Speaker. Our press release following the announcement of the 24 priorities can be read here. The below picture is from a meeting at Art180 where we discussed the school-to-prison-pipeline and other issues affecting students across the Commonwealth.
