Whew! What an experience! Yesterday afternoon we loaded up and headed downtown to the Alamo for the Tax Day Tea Party. It was amazing to stand in unity with thousands of fellow Americans who are fed up with the out-of-control spending by our government. Crowd estimates were at 16,000 people!
It was a struggle to keep the kids happy for the 4 hours we were downtown. Our strategy was food, food, and more food. We also moved positions a few times and even found a little corner where the kids could run around for a few minutes.
I don't know what the future holds. But I want to teach my children that they have the right and a duty to stand up for the values and principles upon which America was founded. Values and principles that we seem to be forgetting, but that were shared by the thousands of individuals we stood with last night.
