A picture of Cory Booker just popped up on my Facebook page. It was taken four years ago when I was a delegate for Pres. Obama at the Washington State convention. For a few hours I got to hobnob with Cory Booker and other movers and shakers and political celebrities. I also met some really amazing people who were not celebrities or stars – but who, every day, are in life’s trenches, working to improve the lives of the people in their communities.
And at the end of the day, I came home, changed into my jeans, got out the sponge and scrubbing brush, and cleaned the toilet. That sort of thing always helps put things into perspective for me.
Viva la cleaning agents!
