I'm a retired Special Education Teacher-before that I was a regular ed teacher and worked at all levels from K-12 and even a special ed private college in San Francisco. I'm retired now, and love to meet new people, and keep the long standing friends. I have always been a liberal, even as a kid. I still have my Kennedy (JFK for Prez)posters.
I came upon your Meetup group profile-I consider it a treasure. I happen to be in Dallas, so I would love to meet /and to be one of your members.
It certainly does. In high school and college I was committed to liberal and progressive causes. I came through the sixties and seventies as an activist.
I saw your " Liberal Ladies Who Lunch" meetup and thought I would love to meet active, liberal friends. I'd love to be a part of your group.
I came to Dallas with my daughter, to be near my son. I was feeling really shy and worried about making friends, but when I found out about Meetup groups, I suddenly had a buffet of choices. The LLWL was my first choice, and in the three Saturday meetings I have attended, I feel more a part of them than I would have imagined. I love the diversity in ages and in background, and the fact that we are all of a same mind about our liberal foundation, whether it was something we learned from our parents, or found as growing up experience. I feel right at home there, even though I have been in it for just three weeks. The women are passionate about their politics, and so am I. I know that I will stay with group, and hope to learn everyone's name, and be as good a friend to new members, as these ladies have been to me, already.
