Hello!

It's getting to the last month of the last month of the year.  Already!  Here in the United States Thanksgiving has come and gone, and Christmas preparations are on the way.  Little kids who believe in Santa Claus (or, kinda believe) are writing letters or e-letters to be sent to Ole Saint Nick.

However, what do we grown-ups write?  Isn't there anything that we wish for?  Well, let's see. I wish that every transgender person has a home to live in.  I wish that she or he would walk from the store to home without being accosted.  I wish that she or he would hold hands with a girl/boyfriend without being stared at or kicked out.  I wish that she/he be allowed to live, period.

Go ahead, write to Santa Claus. But then write to your Congressperson regarding these essential issues.  Whatever your belief or non-belief, you'll be jollier for it.

The listings above are at random, through the Internet.  If you live in (not near) one of the towns or cities listed above, simply press the name of the person, and you will be transported to their district office.  For other Congresspeople, press www.house.gov, and enter your ZIP code in the upper right corner.  For multiple Congresspeople, enter the ZIP+4 code.(example:  12345-6789)  This can be found on most of your regular mail.  Thanks!
