I blame it on my mom
Parents don't cause eating disorders, but my mother did make me an activist. My parents are life-long social justice/peace/civil rights activists who recently retired from their jobs to do their activism full time. So now you know where I get it from.
My mother is a delegate for Iowa at the Democratic Convention this week - I'm driving myself crazy looking for her and dad on the convention floor every night on TV.
Here's to mom, here's to being part of the solution, here's to believing it matters.
