HOUSE RESOLUTION

The following was introduced:

H. 3736 (Word version) -- Reps. Stavrinakis and Harrell: A HOUSE RESOLUTION TO HONOR THE REVEREND JOHN GRIMK… DRAYTON, RECTOR OF ST. ANDREW'S PARISH CHURCH FROM 1851 TO 1891, WHO TRANSFORMED HIS FAMILY ESTATE, MAGNOLIA PLANTATION, INTO ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST BEAUTIFUL GARDENS, FOR HIS LASTING LEGACY OF FAITH, COMPASSION, AND BEAUTY AND TO DECLARE MAY 1, 2013, JOHN GRIMK… DRAYTON DAY IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

Whereas, born on May 1, 1816, John Drayton Grimkť was the son of Thomas Smith Grimkť and Sarah Daniel Drayton and the nephew of noted abolitionists Sarah and Angelina Grimkť; and

Whereas, young Grimkť's early education included graduation from Southworth School in Charleston and then graduation from the College of Charleston in 1833; and

Whereas, John's father, Thomas Smith Grimkť, who had hoped to become a minister but instead followed his own father's desire for him to become a lawyer, succumbed to cholera in 1834 and did not live to see John's pursuit of the ministry; but it is certain that his devout faith and unfaltering adherence to Christian principles strongly influenced John's life; and

Whereas, the Drayton family estate, Magnolia-on-the-Ashley, was first left to John's uncle, William Henry Drayton, and upon his death to John's older brother, Thomas, with the stipulation that he, or any heir, change his surname to Drayton, which he did; but Thomas's untimely death in 1836 catapulted John, only twenty years old, into the role of head of the family and heir to Magnolia Plantation as John Grimkť Drayton; and

Whereas, despite the heavy responsibility incumbent upon a young plantation owner, he followed his calling to the ministry moving to New York in 1838 to attend General Theological Seminary, and en route, was introduced by Philadelphia cousins to his future wife, Julia Ewing. He left seminary in 1839 and continued his preparation for the ministry at home under Reverend Stuart Hanckel of St. Andrew's Parish Church and Bishop Nathaniel Bowen; and

Whereas, in 1840, he married and returned to Magnolia with his bride but shortly thereafter contracted tuberculosis. Tutored in gardening by slaves, John Drayton turned to the soil for therapy, importing camellias from England and France and rare Indian azaleas from Southeast Asia, the first to be planted outdoors in the United States, transforming Magnolia Plantation into the horticultural masterpiece that survives today; and

Whereas, coping with his illness and driven by his work at Magnolia, Drayton was not ordained to the Episcopal priesthood until 1851, becoming the twelfth rector of St. Andrew's Parish Church, a position he held for forty years until his death in April of 1891; and

Whereas, Reverend Drayton, who often composed his sermons on a bench along the Ashley River at Magnolia Plantation, continued his predecessor's work of ministering to the black slaves in the parish with unparalleled energy and dedication, with slaves accounting for more than eighty percent of communicants and baptisms in the parish. He also instructed his flock in the tenets of Christianity, providing ten white Sunday school teachers for sixty to eighty black students at Magnolia Chapel, where school was held during winter and spring; and

Whereas, 1861 was the last year he conducted regular services in the parish and although St. Andrew's Parish Church was relegated to use as a polling place after the Civil War, not reopening for worship until 1876, Reverend Drayton, in the interim, reestablished three of the outlying chapels where he held worship services, provided instruction, baptized parishioners, and assisted the bishop in confirmations to congregations that continued to be overwhelmingly black; and

Whereas, thrice laboring to erase the ill effects of man and nature on St. Andrew's Parish Church, Reverend Drayton turned his steadfast determination to restore the beautiful structure into a continuing resolution to restore the lives of the people who had been abused through the depredation of slavery and displaced by the ravages of war; and

Whereas, in a life of privilege that spanned the loss of father and brother, the pangs of dreaded tuberculosis, and the devastating conditions of the Civil War, Reconstruction, phosphate mining along the Ashley River, and the Great Earthquake of 1886, the faith and Christian ministry of John Grimkť Drayton to the poor had the palpable aura of reality during a surreal era for many who desperately needed such an anchor; and

Whereas, serving as rector of St. Andrew's Parish Church longer than any other rector in the church's three hundred seven-year history, John Grimkť Drayton "not only planted seed in the earth to form what has been called the most beautiful garden in the world (Magnolia), but he planted a seed of the Word which we doubt not will flower into all eternity." Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the House of Representatives of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, honor the Reverend John Grimkť Drayton, Rector of St. Andrew's Parish Church from 1851 to 1891, who transformed his family estate, Magnolia Plantation, into one of the world's most beautiful gardens, for his lasting legacy of faith, compassion, and beauty and declare May 1, 2013, John Grimkť Drayton Day in South Carolina.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Tom Johnson, Executive Director of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens and the Reverend Marshall Huey, Rector of St. Andrew's Parish Church.

The Resolution was adopted.

HOUSE RESOLUTION

The following was introduced:

H. 3741 (Word version) -- Reps. Ott, Alexander, Allison, Anderson, Anthony, Atwater, Bales, Ballentine, Bannister, Barfield, Bedingfield, Bernstein, Bingham, Bowen, Bowers, Branham, Brannon, G. A. Brown, R. L. Brown, Chumley, Clemmons, Clyburn, Cobb-Hunter, Cole, H. A. Crawford, K. R.

Smith, Sottile, Southard, Spires, Stavrinakis, Stringer, Tallon, Taylor, Thayer, Toole, Vick, Weeks, Wells, Whipper, White, Whitmire, Williams, Willis and Wood: A HOUSE RESOLUTION TO CELEBRATE THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE AND THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION, WHICH TOGETHER ENUMERATE OUR UNALIENABLE RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES, AND TO PROCLAIM WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2013, AS "LIBERTY DAY" IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

Whereas, our rights and liberties are rooted in the cherished documents of our nation, the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution, which set forth the principles on which the United States of America stands; and

Whereas, during the Constitutional Convention of 1787, James Madison's Virginia Plan became the foundation of the new American Constitution, replacing the Articles of Confederation and establishing our present form of government; and

Whereas, Charles Pinckney of South Carolina was also a delegate to the convention, and on the same day in 1787 on which Edmund Randolph presented the Virginia Plan, Pinckney presented a draft of a constitution which is known as the Pinckney Plan; and

Whereas, although the Virginia Plan was made the basis on which the new constitution was ordered, Charles Pinckney's plan is credited with the substance of some thirty-one or thirty-two provisions of the Constitution, and he made valuable suggestions regarding phrasing and matters of detail; and

Whereas, a leading architect of the Constitution, James Madison also served in the United States House of Representatives from 1789 to 1797; and

Whereas, during his time in the United States House of Representatives, James Madison introduced several amendments to the Constitution to safeguard individual rights that became known as the Bill of Rights; and

Whereas, Charles Pinckney later served as the president of the State Convention of 1790 that framed a new constitution for South Carolina, as governor of the State from 1789 to 1792 and from 1796 to 1798, and as a United States senator from 1799 to 1801; and

Whereas, as Americans, we enjoy our freedom and the rule of law through these documents created by our founding fathers; and

Whereas, it is fitting to proclaim March sixteenth "Liberty Day" because it is the 262nd anniversary of the birth of James Madison, one of our founding fathers and the fourth President of the United States; and

Whereas, the rich culture and history of the United States of America can be sustained as long as each succeeding generation maintains an understanding of, and commitment to, the principles of our founding documents; and

Whereas, it is fitting and proper for the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives to pause in their deliberations in recognition of "Liberty Day" and to pay tribute to the remarkable achievements and extraordinary vision of our founding fathers and the rights, privileges, and responsibilities they secured for the people of the United States of America. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, celebrate the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution, which together enumerate our unalienable rights and liberties, and proclaim Wednesday, March 16, 2013, as "Liberty Day" in South Carolina.

The Resolution was adopted.

JOINT ASSEMBLY

At 12:30 p.m. the Senate appeared in the Hall of the House. The President of the Senate called the Joint Assembly to order and announced that it had convened under the terms of a Concurrent Resolution adopted by both Houses.

ADDRESS BY THE NATIONAL COMMANDER OF THE AMERICAN LEGION

The Reading Clerk of the House read the following concurrent resolution:

S. 264 (Word version) -- Senator Bryant: A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION TO INVITE THE NATIONAL COMMANDER OF THE AMERICAN LEGION, THE HONORABLE JAMES E. KOUTZ, TO ADDRESS THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN JOINT SESSION IN THE CHAMBER OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AT 12:30 P.M. ON TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 2013.

The Honorable James E. Koutz, National Commander of the American Legion, and distinguished party were escorted to the rostrum by Senators Nicholson, Corbin and Hayes and REPRESENTATIVES DILLARD, SOTTILE and GAGNON. The Lieutenant Governor recognized our special guests and then introduced the Honorable James E. Koutz, who addressed the Joint Assembly as follows:

Lt. Governor McConnell, I thank you for that kind introduction. It's truly an honor to speak to such a distinguished body in this historic State House.
Before I begin, please allow me to take a moment to introduce members of The American Legion family who are with me today.
First, it's a real pleasure for me to introduce the Commander of the South Carolina American Legion, Gary Mitchell from Rock Hill; the National Executive Committeeman for the Department of South Carolina, John Palmer from Seneca; Alternate NECman Bud Hennis from Murrells Inlet; Department Adjutant Jim Hawk of Irmo; my aide and fellow Hoosier, Steve Short; Auxiliary Department of South Carolina President, Barbara Stoffer from Charleston; Alternate NECWoman, Bette McMorrow from Little River; Department Auxiliary Secretary, Louise Winesett from Columbia; and Commander of the South Carolina Detachment of the Sons of The American Legion, Jim Moore from Little River.
We also have with us the Director of The American Legion Riders of South Carolina, Joe Dipasqua of Little River and our South Carolina liaison with the military, Bill Heil - adjutant of Post 195 in Lugoff.
On behalf of the 2.4 million Legionnaires around the world and the nearly 200 Legion posts throughout the state of South Carolina, I want to thank each of you for what you do for our men and women who serve in our military and our veterans from past wars.
Ladies and gentlemen, South Carolina may be known as the "Palmetto State" but I prefer to think of it as the "home of heroes." In fact, I was able to visit with some yesterday at Fort Jackson.
While we hear so much about our wounded warriors recovering in places like Landstuhl, Germany and at Walter Reed Medical Center, it's easy to overlook some of the smaller warrior transition units - like the one at Fort Jackson. What our delegation witnessed there, was a compassionate and dedicated staff of professionals that work every day to improve the spirits and the physical well-being of men and women who have not just borne our battles in war, but may been injured or struck with illness while serving their country in garrison.
And while nobody questions the dedication of the medical and transition staff, our federal government does not provide enough resources to provide the quality of life that these heroes truly deserve. That is why The American Legion's Operation Comfort Warriors program exists. Not to replace the basics that the Department of Defense provides - nobody could do that - but our program tries to provide the fun stuff - gift cards, recreational equipment, family outings - things that don't often show up in government budgets.
On Sunday, we purchased thousands of dollars worth of basketballs, archery equipment, baseball gear, golfing equipment and other sporting goods for the Fort Jackson Warrior Transition Unit. Some of the equipment will be adapted specifically for the use of people with disabilities.
The good people at Dick's Sporting Goods here in Columbia were terrific in accommodating our requests - and when they heard about the cause - even added a contribution of their own.
This is an important example of the "can-do" spirit of cooperation that often exists when citizens and the business community come together to support an outstanding cause.
Operation Comfort Warriors will not necessarily change the lives of our wounded, injured and ill veterans. But it might make their day. And, even more importantly, it shows them that we care and appreciate their service and sacrifice for this nation.
And sacrifice is something that this State knows all too well. The nation mourned with you last June when three South Carolina National Guard soldiers were killed and five injured by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan.
Your State Adjutant General summed it up perfectly when he said, "These deaths are grim reminders that our military, to include the South Carolina National Guard, is still active in combat in defense of our country. We are privileged to have such heroes in our midst."
The terrorist who committed this heinous act, attacked a crowded marketplace and killed 14 civilians, and two police officers in addition to the brave men from your State. One of the fallen soldiers, 1st Lieutenant Ryan Davis Rawl, was a Richland County Sheriff's Deputy. The Sheriff described him as a "Shining Star."
Specialist John Meador was also killed in the attack. His 13-year-old daughter, Brianna, told the local news channel, "he was my daddy and I will never forget him."
The other fallen hero, Sergeant First Class Matthew "Brad" Thomas of Easley, was only 30 years old and left behind a young son.
All of these men were fathers and husbands. They are remembered by hundreds of family members and friends who loved them. The best way to honor heroes like these are not with granite memorials - although that is appropriate and appreciated.
But what they really would want is for their neighbors and friends to ensure that their families are taken care of. And very close to that is ensuring the well-being of their extended families - their brothers and sisters-in-arms. Those who may have been wounded or might have fallen upon difficult times as they return from war and try to readjust to society.
There are ways to do this - big and small.
Tax-breaks and other inducements for businesses to hire veterans are a good start. Breaks in college tuition and scholarships for the children of veterans is another great and meaningful way to show appreciation.
Veterans have undergone strenuous training, performed in high-stress environments, and bring a set of skills and discipline from which most employers and communities can truly benefit. We hear a lot about our national debt and there is no doubt that it is a HUGE problem. But let me tell you about another debt. It's a debt owed to those who have paid costs that have often included long separations from families, missing the births of their children, freezing in sub-zero temperatures, exposure to Agent Orange in Vietnam, losing limbs, and far too often, losing their lives.
While America owes a debt that cannot be fully repaid, showing our appreciation is the least that we can do.
Finally, I would be remiss if I did not express my appreciation to this great legislative body for your work in recognizing one's veteran status on their South Carolina drivers licenses. Most veterans - like me - served their time but did not make the military a career. Many businesses want to express their appreciation for veterans by offering discounts on goods and services. Veterans don't typically walk around carrying their discharge papers or DD-214s. If you are not retired, you no longer carry a military id. That is one of the many reasons why this recognition on the drivers licenses is important and was strongly supported by The American Legion Department of South Carolina. I hope more states follow your example.
My theme as National Commander of The American Legion is "Every Day is Veterans Day." From what I have seen while visiting your beautiful State, is that most of the people of South Carolina agree.
Now, if you would allow me for one moment to call to the dais two men who have been designated by The American Legion Department of South Carolina as the Outstanding Members of the Legislature for 2013. This is in recognition for their many years of outstanding service to their community, state, and nation. State Senator Tom Davis and Representative Ralph Norman, would you please join me? We appreciate all that you do on behalf of veterans.
(Plaques were presented to Sen. Davis and Rep. NORMAN.)
Thank you so much, South Carolina Legislature.
God Bless you and God Bless America.

Upon conclusion of his address, the Honorable James E. Koutz, National Commander of the American Legion, and his escort party retired from the Chamber.
