I don't know how often you call your representatives in Congress to voice your opinion on issues that you care about-but it's something I do all the time.
I just got off the phone with a wonderful gal in my representative's office in D.C. & am feeling very good.
The bill (and amendment) I dearly needed to see defeated-was. My calls and letters and efforts were done for now.
It occurred to me as I got off the phone how good that felt to be a part of and it made me wonder-how often do you call your representatives?
You know they work *for you* right? And that they are accountable to you...?
If you haven't ever done it-I really suggest it.
It's empowering, it's rewarding and it's your right as an American.
Use it wisely of course-I use it to advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves-and I'm grateful for the ability to be able to do so.
Think about it-it's the American thing to do.
