JDRF Children's Congress 2009 Day 2

Well, it was quite an eventful day at Children's Congress! The kids were all taken to the white house this morning to meet the President and were surprised with a guest appearance by Nick Jonas! A rock star and a world leader - how will I ever top that next summer! There is an article on the people website that talks a little about this event
In addition to that we were all invited to hear comments from an all-star panel of mentors which included Jared Allen, Alisa Weilerstein, Kalilah Allen-Harris, and Aaron Kowalski. The highlight for me was getting to see Mary, a personal hero of mine.
