Politically active?

I've been writing letters to legislators like nobody's business - something I've never done before. My topics of choice? Support and certification for direct-entry midwives in SD and mercury-free vaccinations in MN. It is so easy - simply go to their website or the legislative website for your state, fill in the necessary information and let 'er rip. It feels good to know that I am voicing my opinions to people who have true influence over laws that affect our lives. I wish I had started sooner!

That's great! It does feel good, doesn't it? Keep it up, it really does make a difference.

I'm always disappointed when I'm talking about politics with friends and they don't even know who their representatives are, or that they can even write to them and let them know what they think!
