The stars were out this weekend for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. While Helen Mirren paid tribute to Prince and Carrie Fisher’s dog Gary walked the red carpet, the likes of Will Smith, Morgan Freeman, and Kendall Jenner mingled with the political and media elite.
The Web was showered with photos from social media featuring Jared Leto, Broad City duo Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, Shonda Rhimes, Rosario Dawson, Kerry Washington, and U.S. women’s soccer star Hope Solo.

Tonight I met one of my all time heroes, Adam Foss. Watch his TED Talk and be inspired and ignited – the link is in my profile. In the meantime? He is an Assistant District Attorney in the Juvenile Division of Suffolk County, and has become a leading voice for compassion and innovation in criminal justice. He chose to alter his perspective to focus on assistance rather than typically incentivized outcomes, co-founding the Roxbury CHOICE Program, which is “a collaborative effort between defendants, the court, the probation department, and the D.A. to recast probation as a transformative experience rather than a punitive process.” His perspective will IGNITE YOUR SOUL. Also, he tolerated my compete and utter justice obsessed fan girl moment with such grace, he deserves a gold star. #WHCD #WHCD2016
