Today was a good day. It is always an overwhelming honor to preside in the historic NH House.
A much bigger honor was getting to meet former Polish President Lech Walesa. Walesa formed the Solidarity labor movement while working in the Lenin shipyard in Gdansk. He was arrested several times by the Communist Party and imprisoned. He was awarded the Nobel peace Prize in 1983. This is a man who literally stood up to face the Soviet Union.
