It’s been a while since I’ve been able to reach out to anybody! Been busy making this trip happen for the better part of the last two weeks… but oh how sweet it is to be see the finish line. The countdown to California is complete, and how happy I am to be in the Golden State!! Looking forward to seeing everybody.
Today would have been Reagan’s centennial… the year he reached 100. Happy Birthday Mister President. You are sorely missed, and still greatly appreciated. You will always be one of our Nation’s brightest points.
I look forward to seeing you again on the other side. God bless you Reagan.
As I sit here freezing, no really it’s 5° outside, I can’t help but think about how cowardly we have become as a nation. (I know, random.) Let me explain. When we look back on our rich history as a nation, we see men and women standing up and fighting for the morals, values and ideals they believe in. They didn’t just sit at the dinner table venting over the state of the union, they went out in the public square and rallied the troops. When they thought something, they expressed it loud and clear. When they were convicted about something, woe to he who stood in their way. Today I hear a lot of whispers about the problems facing this country. I hear a lot of people venting to like-minded people about the issues they feel so passionately about. But when the opportunity arises to vent those feeling publicly… in a forum that could actually “rally the troops,” everybody becomes silent.
Over the past couple of years, I have received a lot of hatred from people who have never met me before, and from people I once called friends. I have been torn down, and slandered for voicing the common-sense ideas I believe are time-tested and true, even if people are being convinced otherwise. In this politically-correct society, I have been made a target for boldly voicing the beliefs that have made my life so fulfilling. And if I had the past couple of years to do over again, with all of the lost friends and lost opportunities, I would stand up for what I believe all over again.
