In case you missed it, I created my own “Ice Bucket Challenge” to raise awareness for rare disease and Katherine Belle. This video took seven hours that I don’t have to make, but my hope was that it would make a difference. In the end, I challenged several politicians because I want them to understand the importance of NIH funding for research and to consider ways they can help. And, in my humble opinion, empathy is the most important quality I look for in a leader, no matter the issue.
Today I received this video below from Elisabeth Jensen, 6th District Congressional candidate.
Needless to say, Elisabeth Jensen has empathy – she GETS IT! And, she was the only person to respond to my challenge. She obviously takes our concerns seriously and understands them. Above all, I know Katherine Belle can count on her to advocate for all the children of the Commonwealth.
Thank you, Elisabeth and Will.
