Girl, was I wrong! These ladies cut loose as W3 became Wild, Witty, and Wonderful! I still glow when I think of the their reports from the frontlines of Election Night 2016, both hilarious and heart wrenching. Although the stories were bittersweet, each was splashed with humor, optimism, and support for each other.
We listened, laughed, and toasted tequilas between surf sessions in the warm waves. At the end of the week, Jess revealed a more serious mission. She reminded us how fast 2020 was approaching. “We’ve learned that we can’t assume it’s going to end well,” she warned, “We’re going to need help.” I promised I would do my very best.
Now as I write this, I know many of the W3 surfers were up at dawn today, in DC, Chicago, Miami, New York, or Carmel. We may not all be in the same ocean, but we’re all riding the same wave.
See you in the waves,
