Let yourself be heard.

Today my husband and I headed to the airport to pick up our nineteen year old son, Scott.

He spent the week in Washington, DC with a group of college students. In the car and at dinner we listened to stories about his trip.

One thing stood out to me.

A Representative told Scott's group that as citizens we need to contact our Senators and Representatives. They need to know what's important to us to guide their voting. If we don't speak up, we can't complain.

So let me encourage to stand up and be heard. It's easier today than ever to get in touch with your elected officials.

If you're concerned about the direction our country is headed, please contact those who can do something about laws and policies.

Our forefathers fought and died for our freedom. Let's don't be afraid to be heard.
