I am an enthusiastic “every-time” voter. I enjoy looking up and down the ballot at the names of the people who I feel have earned my vote by being responsive to my advocacy and values.

There was a fire in my neighborhood (in Dorchester, MA) this week.

But quickly I heard sirens…lots of sirens...converging very nearby.
