Coloring page of Eugene Goodman, hero of Jan. 6th

Marlon West posted this on Facebook:
"I spent this night before a peaceful transition of power, doing my first comic book styled 'ink' tribute of 2021 to Capitol Police officer, Eugene Goodman.  On January 6, he baited a mob of angry Trump supporters away from the Senate chamber, leading the group in the opposite direction at a crucial moment when the lawmakers were not yet safely locked down.  A group of insurgents that beat other officers with batons and American flags, and murdered another with a fire extinguisher.  He is a hero by any measure."
Copy and print this, if you'd like to color it.  Think of what he did that day while you color the page.  This man should never be forgotten.  Do you think he'll be in future history books?

Word of the Day
bait / ˈbāt / verb = to intentionally make a person angry by saying or doing things to annoy them.  Example:  "Eugene Goodman intentionally baited the mob to lead them away from the legislators."

A small moment of one person choosing to do the right thing. Inspiring for all of the rest of us.
