Blessings for CMR

Each morning my husband and I read “365 Blessings to Heal Myself and the World,” by Pierre Pradervand, which among others, encourages blessings for people engaged in different occupations, including politicians.

Today I want to send a blessing to our representative for the 5th Congressional District , Cathy McMorris Rodgers - to bless her for her ability to demonstrate integrity in listening to her constituents and promoting peace; to bless her for caring and advocating for people in need who are suffering and anxious because of COVID-19; to bless her in showing leadership and courage to stand up to evil and promote practices recommended by our scientists and medical experts in wearing masks, physical distancing and hand-washing.

I would love to see CMR wear a mask in her campaign commercials and flyers, as it is well-known that wearing masks will save the lives of thousands of patriotic Americans (our loved ones including immigrants, refugees, people of color and the unhoused) and help our schools and economy flourish.
