Thanks to the organizers of the High Noon in Cowtown event and to those who came out!
And thank you, Anonymous...we agree.
We went to the event not expecting too much or stay too long, but ended up staying the whole time because it was so well organized, efficient, informative, and inspirational. Whoever managed to keep all those lawyers, judges, and politicians within their alotted time for speech making should help run some form of our government. Seriously, lawyers and politicians in the heat of campaigning making their points in under TWO MINUTES is incredible--if we didn't actually witness it ourselves. This was Americanism at its peak, with families, flags,AND ESP. IMMIGRANTS AND/OR VETERANS WHO HAD PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE TO MAKE SURE WE CAN HAVE OUR FREEDOM AND RIGHTS (ERODING!!). Glen Bucy's speech brought tears to our eyes--tears of pride (for his service and vision), anger (for the waste and corruption by our elected officials and government/s), and shame (for not being more involved and vigilant which allowed the corruption and waste to occur--robbing us of our liberty and our children's future). Despite its being overwhelmingly Republican candidates, the message was not left or right---just about what's right for all Americans.
Have you been appalled by what you see on the "news" happening in the communities? Ever been disturbed by the lack of coverage or the lack of facts shared by the media? Who knows more about what is going on in your community? A reporter with a deadline or informed citizens? Have you ever attended a city meeting? Are you concerned with your current leadership? Ever written a Letter to the Editor that was edited beyond recognition? Or not printed at all? Let us know what's going on in your cities, help to educate your neighbors. The things taking place now are regional and affect all of us. Exercise your right to be informed!
