I was not surprised at all to see Mayor Bowser win the Democratic primary with a whopping 82 percent of the vote. In her term so far, she has been a great mayor, even with the intense scrutiny and constant digging around her. She has taken charge on many of the issues facing D.C. like affordable housing, homelessness and crime. Whenever there is a issue, she responds immediately and doesn’t try to hide. Although her administration hasn’t been perfect, I believe she deserves a second term.
Gone But Not Forgotten
The editor’s column on Father’s Day Blues really touched me. I, too, have lost my father and although it has been years, the pain and the void never goes away. My dad, too, got suddenly ill and just like you, I never thought that that would be the actual end. It’s good to read and to know that I’m not alone in my despair when it comes to my father no longer being on this earth, but like you said, I eventually shake it off and smile, because he was a great man. Love you, Dad.
