The other day, my writing teacher asked the class “do you know who your representatives are?” I was instantly ashamed of myself, because I love politics and I obviously care about the issues, but I didn’t know any of their names or even parties. (Except the governor. I knew he was a liberal Republican.)

So today, I decided to look up who my representatives were and write them each short notes, pleading for them to have an open ear to the plight of the unborn child. Please, do the same. It doesn’t have to be a long letter, and you don’t need to be fearful of what they’ll think. Just step out “on a limb” and tell them how you feel.

Just go to www.whoismyrepresentative.com and type in your zip code. Then, click on each person’s web page. They’ll have a contact form somewhere. Just look around a bit. Then, fill in the information they ask for and send them your thoughts. Why? Because, as your representative, they need the perspectives of their constituents. They need every one of us to reach out and let them understand how we feel.

If I hear back from any of the people I contacted, I’ll let you all know, and you do the same! Just email me at levipont@gmail.com.

  1. I’ve actually talked to several of my state representatives and well as my govenor before. Have you heard of TeenPact? It’s how I became aware (and began to care about) politics.

    1. I had the opportunity to participate in it last year and hope to do it again, and it’s fantastic because you become acquainted with government on a state level and understand exactly what goes into it. Not only that but it’s very God-centered and really pushes you to grow. I probably sound a little like an advertisement, but really, it’s amazing.
