Harper addressed the audience with the kind of fire that has made her one of the most powerful senators to ever represent Tennessee. but the sadness in her voice could also be heard every time she mentioned the name of the current senator Rosalind Kurita.

It was Thelma Harper who walked these same streets with Kurita and it was Thelma Harper who welcomed her with opened arms when she arrived for her first day on Capitol Hill.
