Washington, D.C. – On Monday, I spent time with some amazing children from the Clarksville area. The 1st and 2nd graders from Rossview Elementary invited me to read with them. We read the book called One Proud Penny and talked about how pennies are made. They were great readers and very curious about my job as a U.S. Congressman.
Later in the afternoon, I had lunch with Robyn Gordon, an inspirational 13-year-old who has written a children’s book called Stop Bullying. Robyn is a brave and courageous young woman who was bullied when she was 6.
