I started listening to WAAF and Mistress Carrie when I moved to Boston in 1999. I don’t know a lot of female radio personalities and I always liked her unapologetic, high energy style on the radio. I follow her on facebook and this whole episode started with the picture on the left that came from her Facebook Page. This is a picture of Senator Elizabeth Warren and Mistress Carrie. She captioned that she got to meet Senator Warren and talked about Veterans with her. I then began to read comments and ohhh boy…..
Wow, the amount of hurt feelings was amazing. People threw names, f-Bombs and all kinds of other statements that Mistress Carrie is a TRAITOR.
Mistress Carrie is more than capable of taking care of herself. However, I wanted to have her on to talk about what she is doing for Veterans and how she got started, and the situation with her and Senator Warren.
We started talking about music and her background in radio and then moved into how she got into Veterans Advocacy. As the conversation progressed, I just let her talk because some of her experiences here and in overseas came across as intense personal times in her life. Going overseas and being embedded in these units had an effect on her that made her even more committed to helping our Military and Veterans.
She is always looking for all kinds of ways to advocate for Veterans. Now she serves on the Board of Directors for 22Kill Boston, and you can find her at several Veterans events in the Greater Boston area.
People ask me all the time if they can make a difference, and Mistress Carrie shows all us that we can. No matter if we have or have not served, or what we do in our daily lives, we can effect change wherever we are.
We closed it out talking about living and working in Boston. She summed it up perfectly when it came to Boston sports, “You hate us because you ain’t us!”
I look forward to talking with you again. PDAWG sends
