Rep. Julia Carson has died at the age of 69.
Rep. Carson was the first woman and the first black person to represent Indianapolis in Congress.
She championed children's rights, women's rights...was an advocate for the homeless and worked for peace rather than war.
As Senator Bayh (D-Indiana) said..."She was elected to important public offices, but never forgot who she was, where she came from or who she was there to serve."
May we all be inspired to do the same...
