Benny Johnson on life: Senators from opposing parties can get along
“I attend Mass on Capitol Hill, across the street from the US Senate. I witnessed something today that I wish more people could see. There were two well-known Senators sitting close by each other in a pew (I’ll leave their names out here.) Both members of opposing political parties. One of these Senators is in the midst of re-election & being savaged daily by ads ran against them by the party of their fellow parish member. The other Senator is elderly & was prone to shaking throughout the service. When the Mass had ended, the elderly Senator almost fell over attempting to leave the pew. The younger Senator leaned in quickly, hoisted the other up & clasped tight their hand. They shuffled, arm-in-arm down the wooden aisle, quietly joking to one another as they left the Church. Just a subtle reminder that your political party matters far less than who you are as a person.” — IJReview‘s Benny Johnson.
