What Are You Doing for Others?

MLK_Day_Pic.jpgDr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once pointed out that, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ Community engagement is what drives my passion for politics. My years of public service have taught me that people matter and when we are united we can be powerful agents of change.

Today, my team and I honored Dr. King and his commitment to others by helping to clean up Ft. Foote Park. We spent the morning picking up trash from the shores of the Potomac River that meanders through this beautiful park. The amount of trash that visitors leave behind and what is deposited down-stream from other sites is really disturbing.

This fort was built during the civil war to protect the residents. While it did not actually see any action in the war, it still remains a vital part of history in our own backyard. The experience today strengthened my commitment to being a positive agent for change in our community. We must protect our parks and community for future generations to enjoy. While this was the first clean up I attended at Ft. Foote, it certainly will not be the last. I know today, we collectively made a difference in our community and I intend to continue to commit myself to the service of others. I invite you to join me.
