What I miss about DC
I went to an AIPAC event last night. (I was an AIPAC intern in 1992 in Washington, DC and have been involved with AIPAC ever since.) The event was a talk about the special election to fill Senator Kennedy’s seat and the critical issues facing Israel. I was the youngest person of the 30+ people there.
I left there a bit nostalgic for my DC days.
In addition to my summer at AIPAC during college, I spent 5 years living in DC after college. One of the things that I loved most about DC was how engaged the people (at least of graduate and law students and Hill staffers) were in the issues of the day. Now that I live in the burbs, for the most part, people are focused on and busy with their family life and professions and with whatever time is left, sports seems to be much more of a draw than the politics or world affairs. I am not making a judgment. It is what it is.
Sometimes, it just makes me miss DC days.
