When I was struck by lightning and lost my job/home/everything, I could not find assistance anywhere. After more than a year of struggling, someone wrote letters on my behalf and sent them to EVERYBODY. Patty Murray called within a week and had her assistant mail me some resources that helped a LOT. She is the ONLY one who responded to the letters. I can honestly say, I would not be here today if it were not for her response as I was ready to take my own life. For her to take the time for one girl just amazes me. She truly deserves to be #1.
