Remembering The Rwandan Genocide April 8, 2014
Gregory Meeks, D-NY
"I want to thank the gentleman from Illinois, from the great city of Chicago, who long before he came to Congress, as a member of the Chicago City Council, spoke truth to power. And the words he has just articulated, that we should never forget that we will make sure that we are our brothers’ keeper, that we need not have what I would call a gang mentality ourselves, that simply because someone is away across the ocean, may not look like some of us look, may not talk or speak the way we speak, that when we see evil, we won’t stand silently by. We will stand against it and fight."
The Hudson River School Of Painting April 8, 2014
Eliot Engel, D-NY
"Today, these artists’ paintings can be found in the United States Capitol, the National Gallery of Art, and the State Department, as well as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston."
Celebrating The Centennial Of The Hockaday School April 7, 2014
Kenny Marchant, R-TX
"The Hockaday School today stands on the same Four Cornerstones upon which it was founded—Character, Courtesy, Scholarship, and Athletics. Though it has grown over the course of this century, it has grown to continually fulfill the vision of its founder, Miss Ela Hockaday, who believed that education, combined with a sense of ethics, was essential to the advancement of women in society.

She also attended the University of Chicago and Columbia University. Miss Hockaday’s interests were especially strong in the sciences and, after receiving many accolades, she was made head of the biology department at Durant State Normal School in Oklahoma in "

Jeffrey Duncan, R-SC

Steve King, R-IA
"The President has told us on a number of occasions that he taught constitutional law as an adjunct professor at the University of Chicago‘s School of Law for 10 years. Ten years of teaching the Constitution means you can’t avoid coming across these constitutional requirements, and you can’t avoid addressing the separation of powers that are distinct between articles one, two, and three of our Constitution. And if we wondered if somehow the President could have taught con law for a decade and not run across the separation of powers concept, or the authority that is granted to the Congress: All legislative powers shall be vested in the body of the United States Congress, the legislative body in article one. All powers, all legislative powers. The President had to have taught that for 10 years. I don’t think you can take con law and not encounter that principle. And he didn’t."
