Town hall

This past week we attended a “town hall” meeting in a nearby city with our Congressional Representative. This was my first time attending a political event of this sort. The room was filled to capacity and beyond. It was incredible to see such a turnout. The crowd was an active one that let their feelings be known, and those feelings were running strongly against the current president. Our Rep was responsive and clear, listening to people’s concerns and answering their questions directly and without a lot of spin.

It’s is good to know that we have at least some people in Washington who are on our side and not afraid to say so. I was heartened by the energy and spirit in the room. People expressed anger and fear, but even more so determination and hope. We need a lot of those right now.
