Pelosi

On Saturday, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi was honored at the AIDS Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park as a national champion in the fight against the AIDS epidemic, CBS San Francisco reports. Pelosi also this month celebrates 25 years since she first ran for Congress.

A new section of the grove has been named the Nancy Pelosi Leadership Pathway. Pelosi offered moving words on the discovery of AIDS, the community's reaction to the crisis, the discrimination, and the opportunities she's had to help fight that.

Said Pelosi: "I can’t think of anything that surpasses having my name associated with this grove and each and every one of you for what you do."

Videographer Sean Chapin created a touching clip of the ceremony which captures the beautyof the gardens and the ceremony.

  1. Truly a Hero to a Community and a Nation...she as never let us down, nor lost sight of the mission (nor let anyone ELSE lose sight of the mission!) - she was eloquent and candid, on Saturday; spending hours working in the Grove, after. A Woman of the People, and an inspired leader for our times... Her Family Values were steadfastly in evidence, on Saturday, as she dug and raked and planted trees and vanquished weeds, all morning, at the National AIDS Memorial Grove.

  2. I salute Nancy Pelosi. She has been a champion of LGBT equality and a leader in the struggle to promote liberal/progressive causes. She also is the only woman ever elected Speaker of the House of Representatives.

  4. The movement’s base, the CHR 27-525 PS caliber, was quite thin, and once Patek Philippe’s craftsmen had added a calendar module with indications for date, day, month, leap year cycle and moonphase, it still measured a remarkably slim 7.3mm.
