On Friday, Sept. 11, I had the great privledge of speaking with Nate Loucks of Hometown News Now.

We spent a few minutes reflecting on the 19th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Like many of you, I remember exactly where I was when I learned of the devastating news. I was teaching a theology class at St. Mary’s College and we were discussing, of all things, the concept of evil.

The attacks of that day informed the conversation of the rest of that class, as many of my students asked: Where was God in that moment?

At the time, I told them to look for God in the first responders who risked their lives to save others.

That question is still relevant today as our nation faces a pandemic, and the answer is still the same. Look for God in the people on the front line of our battle against COVID-19, and look for God in those who continue to advocate for dignity and justice for all.

In the radio segment, I also had the pleasure of answering questions from callers. Unlike my opponent, I promise to continue to make myself available to answer questions or listen to the concerns of the people of this district.

Listen to the full segment to hear about my responses to questions on 2nd Amendment rights, healthcare, bipartisanship, and accountability to constituents.
