I was very sad to hear today that Julia Carson, our Congressperson, died this weekend. We learned a few weeks ago that her cancer had returned. I had just taken this picture last week on my way to work; people put out her campaign signs after they heard of her illness.
Julia was known for representing the poor, discriminated against, and just everyday common people in a way few candidates are considered to represent their constituents. She is one of the few candidates for whom I’ve ever voted that I felt so excited and proud to do so.
