One of the benefits of my role is that I am privileged to meet many first responders, from all over the country, who are unified by their commitment and capacity to respond to tragedy with selflessness. Today, my thoughts are with those who responded to the unprecedented breach of the United States Capitol building on January 6, 2021, and put their own lives on the line to protect members of Congress, their staffs, and the other employees who support the vast operations of the legislative branch.
At The Council of State Governments Justice Center, we honor those who serve—that day and every day. And we remember those law enforcement professionals who we lost; people who never recovered from the deep physical and mental wounds of January 6th. We know that their loved ones are grieving today, and we hold them close in our hearts and minds.
Their acts of heroism will not be forgotten.
