During the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, a hero emerged from the ranks of the Capitol Police. Eugene Goodman courageously lured a mob of rioters down a hallway, taking them in the opposite direction of the Senate chambers.(Watch https://tinyurl.com/EGoodman-video.) He was recognized for his bravery when he was given the honor of escorting Kamala Harris at the inauguration. (CNN) Furthermore, a bipartisan bill was introduced on Friday to award Goodman the Congressional Gold Medal, one of the highest civilian awards given by the Congress. The bill describes how his actions “left an indelible mark on American history.” Thank you, Eugene Goodman! -The Hill
