Dear Friends,

There are times when the power of the moment crowds lesser things off the page.

Last Wednesday, my colleague Leo Johnson got between a gunman and his access to the rest of FRC's DC staff, including me. Despite being shot in the arm, Leo subdued the shooter.

DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier said that Leo "is a hero." Some have dubbed him "the Hero of G Street." And House Speaker John Boehner sent out this message: "Prayers are w/injured guard, his family, & everyone at (FRC) ...DC police chief says 'security officer is a hero' - couldn't agree more."

Neither could any of us here at the Family Research Council. Please join us in praying for a quick and complete recovery for Leo and for his wonderful family during this difficult time. And thanks be to God for a brave man who acted in the finest traditions of American courage.
