I have done it. I have written a letter to my congressperson.
To be precise, I have written an email to my congressperson.
While I have voted in most every election since I have been eligible, certainly all on the state and federal level, I have never communicated with my representatives in this way.
I have now de-lurked, so to speak.
And it is empowering! I feel strong! Hear me roar! I feel like I want to write to all of my representatives now.
And it was so easy. Used to be to find their snail mail addresses (if one wasn’t in the habit), one had to go to the library, or catch it in the newspaper. Then one had to get paper and envelopes. Then stamps and the post office…so much trouble!
Not so now. Google their name and all sorts of ways and means of communication pop up.
I composed a letter in Word, and copy/pasted (when all was said, done, and well edited), into the email form on her website. Easy peasy!
I am ready to whack out crackhead opinions all day long and hit the send key.
Wait. I do that anyway. I call it blogging.
