Boys Nation - Day 8 - July 27, 2012

July 27, 2012

The last day of Boys Nation had the senators meeting in session for the last time. A productive morning that ended all too quickly and it was time for the final gravel to hit the podium. But the afternoon was on the horizon, and the excitment mounted. The senators were headed for the White House with the good possibility of meeting the President. And meet them they did. The boys were joined by Girls Nation senators and together, they all posed in the East room of the White House for a photo. President Obama arrived to greet all of the senators and he shook the hand of each one.

July 26, 2012

Day seven was "Hill Day" as the senators were met by the Girls Nation senators and together stormed Capitol Hill to meet with their respective senators and representatives. Although the tempertures were hot, the delegates had a productive and exciting day. Evening brought a favorite assembly speaker, Nesse Goden, survivor of the Holocast. Nesse's story stirs emotions deep inside her audiences and every Boys Nation delegate who hears her, loves her. It's an evening to remember a lifetime.
