National Congress on Your Corner Day

To honor Tucson Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and the others shot on January 8, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) last week introduced a resolution to declare a National Congress on Your Corner Day on the first Saturday in January after a new Congressional term begins.

Ms. Speier, herself a survivor of multiple gunshot wounds suffered when she accompanied the late Rep. Leo Ryan to visit the Peoples Temple cult in Jonestown, Guyana, also urges, in her resolution, that all Members of Congress observe such a day to honor those killed or injured in Tucson and to recognize the importance of Congress on Your Corner events throughout the year to engage with their constituents and fulfill the ideals of the Founding Fathers and precepts of the US Constitution.

I think this is a great idea.
