On Tuesday (Feb. 12), Sami Rahamim was the guest of Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., at President Obama’s State of the Union address. The day after, he was back on Capitol Hill with a group called Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Between shaking hands with Minnesota’s congressional delegation, and meeting other survivors of gun violence -- including a one-on-one with former Rep. Gabby Giffords -- Rahamim said the experience was hugely encouraging. RNS photo courtesy Sami Rahamim.
