AmeriCorps

Headed to Washington, DC today for a double event: first, a celebration of AmeriCorps, the national service program that was my first real legal job. The highlight was co-writing the oath of service that AmeriCorps members are sworn-in with -- and then seeing the President administer it.



Also speaking at Big Brothers/Big Sisters as we launch a beautiful initiative with them in Texas with The Zero Game. As a former Big Brother, well...the whole day and the going home brings a flood of mushy tears, especially as I think about Eli Segal, my mentor who got me into all this and passed away last year. These are for you, Eli.
