Letter to the Editor: Working together, worth asking for

Dear Editor,

Lee Hamilton’s picture of Congress demands citizens ask for more from those who represent us. (‘Congress tanks, but does it care?’ by Lee Hamilton, Clermont Sun, March 26, 2018) Another aspect to focus on is what is happening in a positive way. For example, the bipartisan Reach Every Mother and Child Act focused on ending the millions of preventable deaths of mothers and children in our world. Imagine if life-saving legislation like this were the focus of the news. Working together to create a better world is worth asking for. Let the Reach Act be the beginning of a new step forward for a Congress that works together.
