Eugene Goodman: Man of the Year

All back channels crystal clear

They sensed unrest in the air

Yet, still stood there ill-prepared

To seize mob in riot gear

One man wall of protection

Shuttered wild insurrection

Hatched a plan of deflection

Briefly led misdirection

Served without reservation

Forward, no hesitation

He deserves celebration

Medal and compensation

Eugene Goodman, US Capitol Police

Displayed unique wit and charm

Never used a firearm

Didn’t cause bodily harm

Acting Dep. Sergeant at Arms

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
