Press Release, Statement Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf made the following remarks while paying tribute to former Sen. Harris Wofford today at his memorial service in Washington, D.C.:“Hello and thank you for being here today.“I’m here for two reasons: To pay tribute to a Pennsylvanian who honored the commonwealth by his service, and, second, to pay tribute to a human being who was an inspiration to me.“On both, I extend my deepest condolences to all who loved him, and I want to thank Harris’ family for sharing him with us.“His life story is a remarkable one. He seemed to always be where something important was happening – and as he lived his life – the important things that were happening had a lot to do with him.“Thus, he and Clair traveled to India soon after its independence, where they met most of the key leaders of that independence movement.“He was Father Hesburgh’s lieutenant on the Civil Rights Commission. He brought Gandhian non-violence to Martin Luther King Jr.’s attention. He convinced JFK of the need to take civil rights seriously, including his famous phone call to Coretta Scott King.“He helped Sargent Shriver found his Peace Corps. He was a college president – twice. He served in Gov. Robert Casey’s cabinet. He was a U.S. senator.“In all these things, he made our world a much better one, and it was truly a great thing that some of the chapters of his distinguished life had a connection to Pennsylvania.“All of us in Pennsylvania remember him with great appreciation, and we mourn his passing.“I got to know him through our shared commitment to the Peace Corps. He was one of its founders. I was a volunteer.“He was possessed by the idea – and the practice – of service.“From the Peace Corps to the Citizen Service Project to public service, he judged himself and the people he knew by their willingness to serve.“Like many others here today, I was privileged to know him. And, I was privileged to see firsthand how his passion for serving others made the lives of so many of us better.“As Harris said in his last words on the Senate floor, ‘My thoughts tonight are most of all on how lucky I have been; how very lucky.’“Actually, Harris, we who knew you were the lucky ones.” SHARE Email Facebook Twitter March 02, 2019 Governor Wolf Pays Tribute to Former Sen.

“You need your fans onside. We’ve not given them much to shout about and it’s been a difficult season. “They’ve stuck with us all the way through and I’d ask them to stay with us right till the end. If we keep getting results we’ll stay in the Premier League. “Hopefully the next (home) game, Liverpool, we can give them something to cheer about and all will be forgotten.” Downing started the season at Liverpool, who are in title contention, but now finds himself embroiled in a battle at the bottom of the table. He has had no second thoughts over his move. “Good luck to them,” he added. “The big thing for me was to play. At my age you need to be playing regularly. I’ve done that when I’ve been fit here. “No regrets on that part. We’ve still got Liverpool to come and we might have a say in the title race.” Downing, who had a short loan spell at Sunderland from Middlesbrough early in his career, knows victory at the Stadium of Light could secure the Hammers’ top-flight status. But, in an unpredictable season, he is not resting on his laurels. He added: “We should just get as many wins as we can on the board. Don’t think one more game will be enough because we could easily get dragged back in again. “It will be massive for us if we beat Sunderland. They’ve got games in hand, but difficult games. “They need points desperately and if we can get a win it probably deflates them a little bit.” “In this game it’s all about results. It wasn’t pretty but the big thing is we got the points because it moves us closer to safety. “In the situation we’re in the most important thing was to get the win, especially against a team that was in and around us. “We just play effective football to get results. When I was at Liverpool we played nice football but we finished eighth. “There’s no point playing good football and getting relegated. I did that with Middlesbrough.” Downing hopes for a more positive reaction from the Upton Park faithful in the next home game. “Players always hear it, especially playing at home,” he said. “I’ve had worse than that before: I’ve been at England games when there’s been booing and that’s 90,000 people. “It can affect players and it puts people off their game. The more experienced people deal with it better. Press Association West Ham winger Stewart Downing insists winning is all that matters in the Barclays Premier League and that pretty football is no guarantee against relegation. The Hammers and manager Sam Allardyce were booed last Wednesday after the crucial 2-1 defeat of Hull. “We found it all a little bit strange, winning the game and getting booed off,” said Downing, who was speaking ahead of Monday’s vital clash at Sunderland.
