n Virginia, The Air is different and the weather is hopeful for UAFA-Uniting American Families Act

About being in Reston, VA, so close to the HILL… Capitol Hill, D.C. It is as if I feel the political energy, almost like a different air to breathe, one that requires aclimation- that said, I want to thank everyone who sent me emails and the Tan Mercado family cards, notes, emails of encouragement and support.  That inckudesthose of you on facebook, twitter, blogs, etc.  I will keep you all posted.  It means a great deal to me.

A view of the Reston Town Center

Reston is a census-designated place (CDP) in Fairfax County, Virginia, United States, within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The population was 56,407 at the 2000 census. An internationally known planned community, it was built with the goal of revolutionizing post-World War II concepts of land use and residential/corporate development in American suburbia.[3]

The Reston Town Center is the de facto central business district, with high-rise and low-rise commercial buildings that are home to shops, restaurants, offices, a cinema, and a hotel. It comprises over 1,000,000 square feet (93,000 m2) of office space.[4]

Municipal, government-like services are provided by the nonprofit Reston Association, which is supported by a per-household fee for all residential properties in Reston.
