About this object
“That even in our shared grief and our shared fear and anxiety that–you look up at the Capitol building and realize that as difficult as the task would be, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Like this is, I had worked on the Hill for a long time. And this is kind of what all those years of work were meant to–it was we had an important job to do. So I think that’s what we felt. That’s what I felt that night.”
