J.J. Hanson’s Living Legacy: Renewing Our Will to Live and Love Until the End of Life
J.J. Hanson was a son, husband, father, and Marine Corps combat veteran. At 33, he was diagnosed with brain cancer and given only a few months to live. He went on to live for over three years and became the President of the Patients Rights Action Fund to fight against the legalization physician-assisted suicide. He and his wife had second son, Lucas. They became a living witness to the difference loving care and hope can make in the face of a terminal illness. His widow, Kristen, continues to tell their story to support people with hope who find themselves in similar circumstances and to challenge policymakers and medicine to reject such a dangerous public policy. Our panelists will provide true examples of compassionate care and inspiration for better answers to end-of-life questions than the current push for assisted-suicide.

The Violent Attacks in Portland and Why Americans Deserve Law and Order
The Nation is reeling from sustained physical, verbal, and political attacks on our brave and patriotic law enforcement officers. These men and women put their lives on the line every single day to keep our communities safe. Instead of thanking them, a large portion of our society has subjected them to vulgar criticisms and vile characterizations. We have also seen extreme cases, such as in Portland, where violent anarchists, domestic terrorists, and thugs have wreaked violent attacks against law enforcement. Unfortunately, this has turned into a large movement to eliminate them altogether.Commissioner Mark Morgan is the head of the largest law enforcement agency in the entire country. He has a long career in law enforcement, from police work, to the FBI, leading ICE, and now CBP. There is no one better situated to discuss how important law enforcement is and all the great work they are doing to restore law and order.
