05-10-2023 07:00

Dianne Feinstein dies at the age of 90. She is an important member of the US Senate. She is an inspiration for women in American politics.

Feinstein does amazing things. She works on important problems like gun control in the US. She is the first woman to represent California in the US Senate. She is also the longest-serving female senator in US history. Her death has a big impact on US politics. Now, several candidates want her Democratic seat.

President Joe says that Feinstein is tough but also kind.  She is not only a politician but also a good friend.

Difficult words: inspiration (someone or something what gives you ideas for doing something), longest-serving (someone who has the same job for a very long time), candidate (a person who applies for a job in politics).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
