Are you faking it?
So, this morning I was in the process of writing a post on Facebook stating that I was irritated that I got a canned response from Senator Warner in response to a letter that I had sent him regarding the latest gun control proposal making its way through the House and the Senate. It occurred to me that I shouldn’t be mad. After all, the letter I sent him was canned. I didn’t sit down and take time to write out how I really feel about the issue. I didn’t take the time to tell him how passionate I feel about the guns, gun safety, gun control and the Second Amendment so why am I surprised that he didn’t really respond to me?
Do you write letters to your Senator or Congressman? Do you use a canned letter or do you give them your honest thoughts?
I think from now on I will give them my real thoughts. I will tell them my passion and my honest opinions. Even if it is a poorly worded or grammatically incorrect letter, it will at least be a letter from me. Something from my heart.
What will you do next time you write your government official?
Will you be faking it?
