Our “sources” in Washington, DC have shared that David Ashby spent yesterday morning in the halls of Congress. Congressman John Mica’s Chief of Staff, Russell (Rusty) Roberts, spent about three hours with David, escorting him around the Capitol, to a meeting with Senator Mel Martinez and another with staff from Senator Bill Nelson’s office. 

Russell’s intention to have David meet with staff from other Florida Congressional offices was – would you believe – thwarted by a fire drill!  Russell believes that David is an exceptional young man whose life has forever changed as the result of his trek.  We think so, too, and will share more from David this week. 

To keep up with David in the last few days of his journey, visit his blog at www.helpingstepbystep.blogspot.com.
