Good morning. I begin with a word of scripture. The lord bless you and keep you, the lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you, the lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you Peace. Could we pray? Heavenly father, we are thankful to be gathered here today. We honor, acknowledge you first and foremost. We ask you to bless these men and women you've chosen to serve our commonwealth and order their steps, guide their decisions this day and for the remainder of this session of the assembly. Lord, we acknowledge you as creator of all things. We acknowledge that your thoughts are higher than our thoughts. We thank you for the privilege of invoking your will and your desires for our state over our own will or personal agendas. Give these delegates the grace and the courage to make a difference for the good of all citizens. Help them to make the right choices, choices that are not only politically expedient but are in according -- accord with your will. Remind us we are never more like you than when we were helping others who cannot help we put our trust in you, lord, themselves. Not the economy nor our state or federal government. We put our trust and confidence in you, knowing that the steps of a good man or woman are ordered by the lord. Thank you that we live in a land that allows us to pursue our heart's desire, that we live in a land that allows us to worship in a manner that we choose and in a land that affords us the promise of a greater tomorrow. It is in the name of jesus that I pray, amen.

[Unknown]
I rise today in commemoration of Black history month, and I must add mid5sbí?'8■ -- admit io with a little trepidation. I am not african american. I'm not. I'm american, and we all come from africa way back. Nonetheless, I 'm reminded that Black history is american history, and Black history has -- is very much a part of who we are as americans. And it's actually part of my own personal family history, which I 'd like to briefly share with you. He said a customer is a customer and all are welcome in his stores. And if some white women didn't want to wear dresses that Black women had tried on, well, they left my grandfather's store unhappy. He later moved to nashville, my mom and my aunt benita, her tennessee. Older sister, grew up in nashville. In the 1960's, my aunt went off to college. Like many in the 1960's, she became what we might call a she had hair down to her waist. Hippie today. Her husband had long beard, long hair, and they drove a vw micro bus with new York plates. In 1964, my aunt went back to her home place of birth in mississippi with a mission to register Black people in mississippi, and she drove through -- I 'm sure she drove through Virginia, Mr. Speaker. She drove through nashville, tennessee, stayed with my grandfather, her father, and she told my grandfather her mission. And to sher shock and dismay, he told her not to go. And she said, but daddy, these are your values. And Mr. Speaker, he said, they are my values, but I have another value, and that is I don't want my daughter to get killed. You see, just that summer, goodman and cheney had been murdered by the mississippi police and ku klux klan, and my grandfather did not want his daughter to share their fate. So I 'm told they argued into the night and they came up with a compromise. My aunt would go down to mississippi to register Black people to vote, but she wouldn't take her vw micro bus with the new York plates. She would take my grandfather's chevrolet with tennessee plates. So they wouldn't serve as a target, and I must say that story, which occurred before I was born, has always inspired me. The bravery and practicality of -- excuse me. The bravery and idealism of my aunt combined with the practicality and caution of my grandfather. That summer is now known as mississippi freedom summer and always been a proud part of my family's history. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. (applause).
Bill Howell
The gentleman from Frederick, Mr. Collins.
Chris Collins

Bill Howell

Chris Collins

Bill Howell

Chris Jones

Bill Howell
The gentleman from Hanover, Mr. Peace, thank you, Mr. Speaker, I rise for an introduction.
Bill Howell
Gentleman has the floor.
[Unknown]
Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House, today we were blessed by words of prayer from buddy thompson. Buddy thompson, a senior pastor of life church since 1995. He's a native of the Richmond region but obviously loves living in Hanover County. As you might imagine, we have a lot of buddies from Hanover County. If you see somebody walking down the street and say, hey buddy, you've got good odds that you're right. He did mary his college sweetheart, two wonderful daughters, runs a wonderful ministry in mechanicsville, serving the entire community, not just the four walls of his church. I think it's most important to know about buddy thompson, he praise regularly for our Hanover sheriff's office, and our law officers need our support and enforce. Prayers. I ask you give a warm welcome to pastor buddy thompson. (applause).
