I remember as a little girl attending an anti-war rally in the 60s. John Kerry was leading the March, and he spoke at the small square in Lexington MA where the March concluded. It was so thrilling to see people working to make changes they believed would benefit the country. I must’ve gotten fairly close to him because I remember how tall and powerful he seemed. I always wanted to be politically active, but life as a full-time working single mother was exhausting. Now that my children have grown and I just retired, I’m ready to fulfill my promise to do my part to support this country that has given so much to me.
