22 Pushups: Day 13

Tuesday, July 05, 2016

The 13th day of my 22 day, 22 pushup challenge was held at the Concord Veterans Center, an extraordinary resource for counseling and mental health services for active soldiers and retired veterans. We hear from Executive Director Jeffery Jewell about how his professional staff handles thoughts of suicide with care and support.  Retired Major General and current Concord City Councilmember Dan Helix led the push-up count 'military style'. We had a great group of veterans join in with the encouragement of Concord City Councilmember Tim Grayson.

Fire fighters, friends and future firefighters did 22 push-ups to raise awareness of the 22 veterans who commit suicide each day.This weekend as we gather together with our families to celebrate the 240th anniversary of our country’s independence, I invite you to recall the great service of our Veterans and those who need our help.

Today, at the halfway point of my 22 days, 22 pushups a day challenge to raise awareness for Veteran’s suicide, I visited Dublin’s Mape Memorial Park, named after United States Navy Commander John “Jack” Clement Mape, a 40-year old father of seven, who was Dublin’s first casualty in the Vietnam War. I was joined on Day 11 by Dublin residents Kevin Dielissen and Stephen Wright, whose son Dylan, is a member of the Army Reserves following 8 years of active duty service in the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division. All Veterans deserve our support as they return home.

Gov. Jerry Brown today signed into law Senator Steve Glazer’s legislation to ban the so-called bullet button, a key element of a historic gun reform package approved by the Legislature a day earlier.

Glazer, D-Orinda, is joint author with Sen. Isadore Hall, D-Los Angeles, on the bullet button ban, SB 880.

A bullet button assault-style rifle was used by the shooters who killed 14 people and wounded 21 in the San Bernardino terrorist attack last year.
