I an on Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers' mailing list and I just received this:

Quote:
17 September 2010

Dear Friends,

This week, I joined the Global Down Syndrome Foundation to honor my good friend, Congressman Patrick Kennedy, for his work to advance the cause of equal rights for this country's Down syndrome and special needs community. As a co-founder of the Congressional Down Syndrome Caucus, Patrick and I have worked together for the past two years to educate lawmakers about Down syndrome, improve research funding, and promote policies that enhance the quality of life for those with special needs. Patrick has been an integral part of the Caucus and an inspiring, outspoken leader in Congress.

Since Patrick plans to retire from Congress, this week's event was a fitting and touching tribute to a man who has worked tirelessly on behalf of a cause that is close to all of our hearts. Although Patrick is leaving Capitol Hill, I will continue to be inspired by his compassion and his leadership. It is because of people like Patrick, my son Cole, and all of you that I am motivated every day to be an outspoken voice for those with special needs and their families.

Please see the press release below for more information about this week's event.

With my warmest regards,

Cathy
