2. omg, this video is amazing and perfect!

I know five women who are dealing with hair loss (one in her mid 20's) and it has been devastating for them.

Rep. Pressley's strength, beauty, eloquence, vulnerability, honor, grace, all shining like a brilliant star guiding the way in a dark sky. I hope Rep. Pressley chooses to stay in government and fight for us for many years to come.
