Description

From her years serving in the armed forces to becoming the first Hindu woman to be elected to Congress, Tulsi Gabbard reveals the lessons she's learned and the experience she's gained while living in service to her country. Tulsi Gabbard grew up the fourth of five children in a loving, simple, rough-and-tumble home in beautiful Hawaii. Happiest when running around with no shoes on, reading books, surfing, and practicing yoga, she was a reserved child with no interest in politics. But as life went on, Tulsi began to take notice of the fact that her idyllic world was less idyllic than she thought—the needs of her community went unacknowledged; state leadership was disconnected from the people they'd been elected to serve—and at the age of twenty-one, she was elected to the State House of Representatives, the youngest ever elected official in Hawaii's history. It was a defining moment, one that would set the course of Tulsi's life. IS TODAY THE DAY? tells that story and many more for a revealing portrait of a true public servant. A veteran of the Iraq War and now a bold, beloved voice in the United States congress, Tulsi Gabbard charts a corrective course for the Democratic Party and the country, and she provides keen, insightful advice for everyone—from young women, to the modern, progressive voter, and everyone in between. IS TODAY THE DAY? is one woman's singular life story and a guidebook for readers to better navigate the many challenges facing the American people today.
