Today was another day filled with sleep. I guess everything that had been happening before I left for D.C. and all the nonstop action while I was in D.C. finally caught up with me and basically knocked me the fuck out.
I’m still processing everything that happened the last few days in D.C. It was definitely an empowering experience lobbying on behalf of Hadassah on Israel and women’s healthcare. The last couple of months have been so heavy with uncertainty and fear and being able to talk with congressional staffers about issues that are important filled me with hope. There is still so much work to be done and it’s not like the fear has suddenly gone away, but I definitely see that the work that we are doing, making our lawmakers aware of our concerns and showing them the power of the people, is not in vain. We just have to keep pushing our elected officials and keeping them accountable.
