(Sacramento) – Assemblyman Rich Gordon (D-Menlo Park) opened the Monday floor session with a special prayer for peace following the violence that erupted at the State Capitol the day before when two opposing groups clashed, injuring ten people. Assemblyman Gordon noted that His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama had been in the Capitol just one week earlier calling for peaceful coexistence. “We pray that love will conquer hate,” Assemblyman Gordon said. “We vow that we will not be defined by hate…hateful speech or hateful action.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
