I interrupt this retirement to go back to work in DC, trying to be a catalysis for change, trying to get people with power to stop and listen, to open their minds to the possibility of doing something a different way.
To open their minds to the fact that they have the power to save lives.
It’s no easy task.
It’s only Wednesday and I’m already exhausted.
I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

You are my hero, Dawn.

Awwwww….thank you, though I don’t count myself as a hero. I think most people would like to have a place to put their grief and anger when things like this happen. I feel (some of the time anyway) lucky to have a way to work through some of those emotions.

You are facing a daunting task. I wishes can make it so, you will see great success!

I wish….but little success are about all we can really expect, even in the best of times. It’s slow going in Washington as usual.

Great image of the capitol (after some rain, it looks like). Wishing you success, Dawn.

Thank you Robin. Something about that building makes me want to take pictures even though I have a few hundred (or more) of it from all the other trips we’ve made here.

Thank you again and again.

You are so welcome! Thank YOU for appreciating the work. Sometimes we feel invisible here, even wearing red and black, carrying our bags with huge logs and wearing buttons of our loved ones. Some of them call us the crazy truck people and that’s OK with us. Lots of crazies up here get plenty of attention. Whatever it takes I guess.
