A Birthday Wish

A woman writes to her State Representative – as part of her birthday wish to her grandson!

The most pressing issues we face from my perspective include the following…’

Besides the fact that this post moved me to tears, it is a hugely powerful idea in so many ways. It celebrates, cherishes, teaches and petitions.

I’m inspired. Why not start a new birthday tradition?
