I had a great trip to D.C. I visited museums, the World War II, Vietnam, Korean & FDR memorials, viewed the nations’ capitol from the top of the Washington Monument, and saw President Obama speak at the memorial for slain police officers on the lawn of the Capitol. The tour of the White House and Capitol arranged by Congressman Gary Peters was inspiring. Being surrounded by such rich history, I was reminded that our country was built on the strength and perserverence of its people. I have a renewed faith in our ability to make this country a healthier place for our children to learn and thrive. Sign up for my call to action for parents — with one voice, we can leave a legacy of good health for our children.
