I’ve been in Washington, DC for the past three days for the annual Summit of the Tiffany Circle Society of Women.  This is an organization that was formed 5 years ago with the purpose of enhancing the financial and volunteer support of the American Red Cross, one of my favorite organizations.   I can tell you that this is not a group with which one should reckon.  We are raising the bar on making sure our country is prepared to respond to disasters.  If not us, then Who?
