As I told you a couple of days ago, I had lunch with three AMAZING women. One of them was Ginni Thomas. The 'Iron Lady' who is married to Clarence Thomas.
I have rarely, if ever, met someone who has been put through the ringer of hate and destruction as much as she has. Sure I, like you perhaps, have wondered what their life was like from time to time, but it was never personal until Monday.
What have we done? Who are we as people? Do we ever stop to think about our words? I know I do far too few times. I am working on that and have asked for forgiveness but the damage has been done.
We never discussed her personal life, my guess is she is a warrior. But we did talk about the fight in Washington. The fight for the Constitution and all that we know.
I recognized the look in her eyes. I haven't seen it in another before. The plea for gentle relief and hope of another coming to assist at the point of the spear. The quiet and brave prayer whispered to one self and God: "where are they Lord? What will it take for them awake?"
I was blessed to spend a few minutes with her and she is blessed to have two incredible friends and with Gods grace, a new friend in me.
She is a woman, much like Margret Thatcher, to be reckoned with. A woman who will stand at her post until the last man is down or until the dawns early light shows our flag does indeed yet wave.
Pray for her and all those who serve us quietly and relentlessly. Better yet pray that others may hear their call soon and stand at their post.
Here's what Glenn said about the meeting on radio today:
