Let me just say I have never been more proud of my 10 year old son! Carson had three meetings with Congressional members today and a Senate hearing to be a part of...Being the only delegate from his state meant it was up to Carson to lead these meetings by himself....I was with him, but this is his disease and he took full responsibility for getting his message across loud and clear....explaining the bill that needed to be signed and why it needs to be signed by the two US Senators and a US House Representative....and , did he ever turn on the charm..I do not know who could say "no" to this kid.....He Rocked Capitol Hill....and ALL the kids did..It was simply amazing to see 161 kids in Blue CC shirts scattered all over capitol Hill speaking to their Senators and Representatives yesterday! More later!
|US Senator Crapo was just the nicest, most encouraging man...told Carson of a family member who has T1D and of his continued support of the SDP bil! Here Carson is telling him about his scrapbook he presented to him.|
