Something in the air …

Living in Washington D.C. and working for a nonprofit organization that seeks to bring faith into the public sphere makes this election year especially exciting. Sometimes I have to remind myself that the “Washington” that candidates deride, and simultaneously want to change, is my ‘hood. This past weekend, while walking around my neighborhood with le boyfriend, we saw the standard weekend scene: people milling around, shopping, enjoying the perfect fall weather, except that many were also stopping on the street corners to fill out voter registration forms (the deadline to register in DC is today). You can feel the excitement growing … no matter how the election turns out, change is certainly coming and I am glad to be here in our nation’s capital.

If you haven’t registered to vote, please do so today!
