We recently learned of the death of Representative Elijah Cummings and I am deeply saddened by the loss of this man. As I have listened to Mr. Cummings in recent years, I have seen someone who I believe acted from a place of deeply held personal values. That was apparent when he was deciding policies, questioning witnesses, defending Baltimore, or speaking at the funeral of Freddy Grey. His actions centered on these questions: Is it true, is it moral, is it just, is it fair, and is it kind? How different government would be today if those questions were at the root of the decisions of all politicians.
